The users who want the most media rich experience might end up going for iPhones and Androids not because of slow data speeds, but if anything, I'd say it's because there are fewer quality apps to choose from with a BB. One needs to look at the big picture and not focus on 3G, 4G, 2.5G, or whathaveyou.
I agree, I don't buy a phone to surf the web. I was happy with my 7200 since the most I do is get directions or maybe a phone number. But if you want mobile email that also makes calls then BB is the tool for you...
