Cingular 3G Imminent In Big Apple
Jun 27, 2006, 12:19 PM by (staff)
In its online store, Cingular today began offering the Samsung ZX10 to residents in New York City zip codes. The carrier is using the same description for the phone as it does in 3G-enabled areas, advertising 3G (UMTS) data and streaming video. Due to Cingular's recent decision to only sell 3G phones in 3G service areas, there is every reason to believe Cingular will launch 3G in New York very soon if it hasn't already. The ZX10 is currently the only 3G model being sold online; the LG CU320 is not current listed. It is possible the CU320 has been discontinued to make way for the LG CU500.
