I'm not sure, but i think that goes mainly for the US. I think 3g
networks are widely spread over Europe (don't know about parts of Asia
etc.). One of the main disappointments in Europe about the iPhone was
that it didn't support 3g at first. In Holland for example most
operators have almost 100% network coverage and an increasing number of
people use it. And they don't use it like a wifi connection to
constantly be connected and pull large amounts of data in, but to be
connected whenever you want and wherever you are, without the long
waits. I mainly use my phone browser when i'm travelling by train. I
dont use much data (mobile prepped websites), but i hate to wait a
minute for a new browser page to appear.
