Does No 3G and No GPS + ATT = Good Phone?

by jweinraub    Jan 28, 2008, 2:36 PM

Looking at this phone, it does seem like an ideal phone for me. However, the lack of 3G that would work on AT&T strike me as a possible thing making me wary. The lack of GPS isn't much of a concern, though it would make an awfully nice novelty to have. The E90 seems like a much cooler phone, but I can't justify the price, especially lack of 3G that would work in the US.

However, I don't use data much other than Google Maps and Mail, and casual Wikipedia. Though I tend to use them all when I am on the go, so even though I can use WiFi with it, when I don't have access to wifi, Edge probably would suffice.

So my question is, would you recommend this phone to somebody that wants a mini smart phone, in a candybar format? Would I really need 3G? Does the Google Maps triangulating thing work with this on Edge/ Google Maps?

Thanks for any feedback!
