Life on the Road with 3G – NewMobileComputing.com. Interesting. it says its not really G3 but G2.5, or GPRS in other words. i have this my self and its quite good. Very handy actually! i read the news all the way to the shops today, putting the phone in my pocket, locked, a few times becasue of crossing the road or what have you, and never had to disconnect! great!
