Sorry it is a little outdated news but we got 7.2 mbps since 2007 :
Thursday, 01 November 2007
Over the coming months, Swisscom will massively expand its mobile data network, in a series of stages. From mid- November, Swisscom customers will be able to take advantage of much higher speeds - up to 7.2 Mbps for receiving and up to 1.4 Mbps for sending data - thanks to HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) technology. In a second stage, the HSPA network will be expanded to provide coverage to 70 per cent of Switzerland's population by the end of the year. Stage three will see HSPA becoming available on the entire UMTS network from mid-2008, extending coverage to 90 per cent of the population. By mid-2008, Swisscom will have invested tens of millions of francs in its mobile broadband network.
Currently, Swisscom already supplies 45 per cent of the Swiss population with HSPA. By the end of the year, coverage will have increased to 70 per cent. Thanks to further expansion, HSPA will be available on the entire UMTS network from the end of June 2008, giving Swisscom customers almost everywhere ultra high-speed mobile access to the Internet, e-mails or company data.

Sorry I prefer to be connected with 3G at 7,2 MBs but not in Ontario Canada, a very civilized place by the way but not as evolved as Switzerland where I get full 3G in any tunnel under the Alps as well as FREE PUBLIC WI FI in most metropolitan areas.

If you buy an unlocked phone you can find enough free wi fi at least here in ontario or toronto to be more specific. You just don't have internet access all the time but it works out to be a lot cheaper.
Buy an iphone3g with rogers for say 150.00 on a 3 year contract at 30 dollars a month in data charges only then your voice plan on top of it. 30 x 36 months plus 150 = $1230.00.
As opposed to an unlocked iphone 3g for maybe 750 or 800 and use free wi fi once you find it.
So you're looking at a differance of $400.00 dollars. Understand now. Maybe in your country free wi fi is not available.
I love the * sound of silence * by Simon and Garfunkel beautiful song......
ManÖ this is a tough area. Some people are going to viciously attack us for saying this, but, is this the best you can do Nokia? If it is, youíre out of touch with the entire cell phone world because this is one of the most disappointing screens weíve seen in a long, long time. Besides being a poor resistive touchscreen with good resolution ó itís poor because they try and allow it to decipher touch actions separately from select actions ó it looks like thereís a weave pattern behind the display. It gets really infuriatingly annoying. Weíre assuming itís the digitizer, but seriously, learn how to make a touch display. This isnít 2003. Every single flagship phone has a display 10x better than yours. If you want us to break them down because youíre too out of touch to realize it, weíre glad to do so:

I prefer to get a good phone along with a good monthly subscription and use it !
but maybe I am not as smart as you are....

Itís hilarious that when Nokia finally listens and tries to make a somewhat normal QWERTY keyboard layout (we moaned that the Z key was always incorrectly right under the A key on previous devices) they mess it up even more. Like honestly, youíre expecting people to use something with the spacebar key stage right? If the layout isnít bad enough, the keys certainly are. While the texture of the keys is actually pretty stirring, thereís absolutely positively the smallest tactile feedback imaginable when pressing in a key. For comparisons sake, the T-Mobile G1, whose keys arenít the best in that department, is worlds better than the N97ís keyboard. Itís really disappointing because Nokia just canít seem to nail this keyboard area. You could argue that thereís a virtual on-screen keyboard, but thatís so useless weíre not going to entertain the idea of you bringing it up.
read and you'll see what a disaster this phone is !
Nokia has lost its place in the sun when looking at the consumer smartphone market and until they get back on track, RIM, Apple, Windows Mobile, Palm and Android are going to continue eating more and more of their lunch.
