For which they were heavily criticised because smartphones (and not so smart
phones) in Europe had had 3G for years.
3G is not a special feature any more, it's pretty basic in most handsets.

The FR, with it's all-touchscreen interface and open nature *could* be
forgiven for not having 3G. It's a shortcoming, but it's forgiveable when so
much of the rest was at least near the state of the art - Linux, GPS, uSDHC

If 03 is released in a year or so without 3G it will have fallen way behind,
especially as the touch screen control is no longer unusual.

If the hardware is fixed at this point then, well, sorry, but OM ought to
revise it.
