When I picked up my SMT5600 I thought "Yey! We've finally caught up with Europe and Japan!" Then I find myself perusing a former College friend's blog and click on a link for 3 in the UK. (Btw, why are company names always cooler outside the States?). Check out their offerings. Very cool.

Looking at their coverage map map-app, the middle-of-nowhere village (Hassocks) that I grew up in has full coverage. 3G services including video calls...

Will we ever catch up? Or is the US always destined to be an also-ran in the arena of mobile tech?
