    It won't have the hardware necessary to communicate with AT&T's 3G bands, those are on different frequencies. It will however, still work on their Edge network, which is painfully slow.

    people have stayed with ATT's horrid network FOR the iPhone....I have many friends that ONLY have ATT because of the iPhone. The people I do know that went Droid did it to have a phone that is as good as the iPhone on a far superior network. Why would someone want a Nexus on ATT...if your going to use the worst carrier available why would you want a phone that isn't unique to that carrier. iPhone junkies will stay with ATT everyone else will either go to Verizon for better service or T-Mobile for better price and about the same level of service.

    I don't really see the difference. 3G is so scarce (sure a lot of times your iPhone says you are using 3G...but you all know it's edge) you might as well just use it on edge all the time. Hell most iPhoners switch their phone off 3G to save on the horribly short battery life.

    All the more reason to just go to Verizon... Even in the middle of nowhere (e.g. on horse trials in the middle of the woods) Verizons data network is, IME WAY faster than AT&Ts was even in the middle of downtown Nashville with 3G turned on a full signal. Not to mention is nice to be able to actually make phone calls (something even the best AT&T phones struggle with).

    Where I live, when I had my 3GS I was on 3G about 98% of the time. Only rarely would I be switched to Edge. On the other hand, I would drop/disconnect calls all the time.

    Nice chart.

    Couple of comments:

    1. Controls: iPhone also has a volume switch on the side

    2. Multitask: iPhone multitasks the phone (and iPod as you noted) with almost all Apps, including email and web (with simultaneous voice and data.)
