Macworld: The iPhone is EDGE only

As amazing as the iPhone is, I’m apparently not the only one wondering why Apple settled with EDGE when Cingular is already supporting HSDPA. Perhaps it’s a limitation imposed by packaging requirements or power consumption. Perhaps it’s a desire to avoid supporting the myriad of HSDPA bands worldwide.

Sure, the iPhone features WiFi, but it’s difficult to stream SomaFM reliably over EDGE while driving down the freeway at 70 mph :)

What do you think?
