EDGE Evo enabled iPhone anyone?

This post title got your attention? I do hope the Nokia Siemens Networks announcement about their newest software solution: EDGE Evolution, got Steve Jobs (Apple CEO) attention too. With only software upgrades, mobile wireless carriers can take the advantage of double up the current EDGE speed to 592kbps. The software is going to be available on Q3 2008, and followed up with another upgrade into EGPRS 2 with download speeds of 1.2Mbps and uplink speeds up to 473kpbs. Sounds so tasty ain't it? Read on Engadget Mobile here for the news update.
If AT&T and others wireless carriers, who are releasing iPhone are willing to upgrade their investment on current slow EDGE network into this new EDGE Evo; then iPhone owners all around the world will have assurance that their EDGE enabled iPhone is almost as good as the 3G enabled iPhone (when it'll ever be released this year). And all Apple got to do is only release a new firmware update to support the EDGE Evo network, then we all can live happily ever after...
