Possible Cingular 3G launch slowdown

While Cingular Wireless previously announced that 3G service was coming sooner than expected, analysts from Deutsche Bank now believe the rollout will be slowed down initially to 12-15 cities. Cingular, which plans on using the HSDPA 3G standard, still is officially claiming that 3G will launch in 15-20 cities by year's end. The analysts cite distractions and other priorities as their evidence, not equipment being behind schedule.
