AT&T announced that they are now offering true 3G UMTS (WCDMA) wireless in Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Detroit. Claimed speeds are 220-320 K with bursts to 384K. They are offering two 3G headsets, a Motorola and a Nokia, as well as a UMTS PC card modem by Novatel. This modem doesn’t support OS X out of the box, but Nova Media out of germany offers a software solution. The AT&T Unlimited Wireless Data plan is offered at $80/month. I live in Seattle, so I’m stoked 🙂
According to PhoneScoop:

The service is priced at $25/month for unlimited mMode data access, (in addition to a standard voice plan,) and $80/month for full unlimited data. The company is offering the Nokia 6651 and Motorola A845 phones for $300 each, and a Lucent / Novatel data card for $150 after rebates. Both phones include Bluetooth and VGA cameras with video capture. The company plans to expand the service to Dallas and San Diego by the end of the year.

Can some readers in the above cities chime in here? We’re all longing for the good old days of Ricochet 🙂
