Slow iPhone Network

New York Times:
SAN FRANCISCO, June 28 — On the eve of the Apple iPhone’s sale, the top executives of Apple and AT&T defended their decision to rely upon AT&T’s slow Edge wireless data network, rather than a faster network that is less widely available.

Why go with a slower network? If you are looking at consumers that are going for the best of the best, they are not going to settle for slow connection that they can get on the blackberry or thier LG flip phone.

According to reports AT&T has spent over 16 billon on it's network over the past two years. They have spent so much money to have these network capabilities. So why would Apple settle for something less. Is Apple turing into the Zune issue? Releasing something and saying that it is not as good as it could be?
That is what they are saying... isn't it?

It comes out Friday June 28th, 2007.
