Wow that is so cool or is it. Japan had it for 10 years or so, and America had it for two to three years or so. And we will get it in an year. That too if everything goes well, which will not so we are looking at 2008 to actually get the 3G service, even then it could take upto six months or more for you to get it setup on your phone. By then japan and Americans would have moved on to 4G or wimax etc. So don't worry about 3G compatibility of your new phone just yet, it will only come after your mobiles life time and when you are looking for a new one.
