This morning when I woke up and picked up my BlackBerry Bold I noticed something I hadn't seen before from my home here in Winchester, VA... "3G" instead of "EDGE". I was ecstatic... and amazed! At first I imagined that the "3G" just got stuck from my commute from the other side of the Blue Ridge mountains, but turning off the WiFi connection to check out the speed easily proved to me that I really did have a speedy connection.
Of course, the AT&T coverage map isn't updated yet, but it really is here! Yay! Searching the Internet I also found a new blog, GottaBeMobile. A local gentleman, who is the Artistic Director at a local theater in the area, is one of the editors there. Good to see other folks who love technology here in the valley.
