AT&T EDGE Speeds on Steroids?

Illustration for article titled AT&T EDGE Speeds on Steroids?

It looks like Operation Fine EDGE might be paying some pretty fine dividends. AT&T customers at both Mac Rumors' forums and HowardForums are relaying that tonight they've been experiencing some fairly jazzed up EDGE action—speeds have been hitting around 200kbps, a far cry from the typical 40kbps that made Pogue-y a sad panda.

Dermot at the MacRumors forum put together a running list of cities experiencing the almost awesomness:

New York City: 184kb/s
Queens, NY: 186kb/s-230kb/s
Chicago suburbs: 160kb/s
S. Florida: 176kb/s-204kb/s
Washington DC: 196kb/s-207kb/s
Philly: 191kb/s-264kb/s
Marion, Indiana: 186kb/s-196kb/s
North Seattle: 190kb/s
Dallas: 160kb/s
West of East Orange, New Jersey: 365kb/s

EDGE speeds boosted significantly.

MP3 ringtones offered through iTunes with the 7.3 update released later today.

Keyboard that flies after a few days use.

Highly scratch-resistant screen with smudges and fingerprints that aren't noticeable until the iPhone is asleep.

Ability to view PDFs.

SIM card tray confirmed at the top.

Battery life close to Apple's reported estimates which is nearly double that of some so-called smartphones that are twice as thick with smaller screens of weaker resolutions and less than 1/4 the iPhone's 16 million color 24-bit depth.

Competitively priced plans with data based on the cheaper MEdia Net add on instead of PDA plans.

Interface that flows just as quickly and smoothly as it did in the commercials.

What will the loser iPhone haters have to complain about now?
