Haha, im sorry that you guys are so behind in technology to think that America doesn't have 3G. Not only have we HAD 3G for the past 2 years or so, we have been utilizing it in a much more efficient way than many other, (and i wont say which country here), have been. So YES, America DOES have 3G, and its been around....for a WHILE. AT&T..and soon to be T-mobile. sheesh

Cnet has some very good reviews on the iPhone 3G that might help with some of the speculations, current limitations, and capabilities.
Overall, the iPhone 3G maintains the same user interface and features as the predecessor with the added 3G, GPS, Microsoft exchange, and 3rd Party Applications with the addition of the App Store. What's left out is flash for photos, video recording, robust bluetooth capability, multimedia messaging, and voice dial. The lack of video recording, multimedia messaging, and voice dial is a definite heartburn for most end-users. The question that has not been validated is whether a cut and paste function exists.
Despite the long list of raging negative comments identified within the opinions of the iPhone 3G on gsmarena.com, the more economical price and overwhelming excitement set by the groundbreaking original will propel the iPhone 3G to new heights (with expected software updates to come in the future).
I dont know where some of you ppl get your info from, but the US does have a HSDPA network under AT&T, read, or research your info before your post stupidness. I am from Canada and we also have a 3G HSDPA network.....think about it, why on earth would a wireless service/phone provider offer a phone if it didnt have the technology to make money off of it....i dont think the executives are that stupid.....just thought id let you know.
How about some reviews and opinions of the iphone???? That is what this page is for!! I am sure you will have plenty of opinions to share, as is illustrated by the inordinate amount of garbage you are all posting here!!....If you cannot contibute constructively....CLEAR OFF!!!
