Emphasis on just how slow EDGE networking is. Based on the handful of reviews this week, this is clearly the iPhone’s weak spot. Atwood’s also got a good point about the fact that free public Wi-Fi spots are often hard to find.
But I believe Jobs’s explanation that it’s a reasonable trade-off for battery life. I’m buying an iPhone today (I hope), but I have no illusions that I might not be buying a new one a year from now.
