it only works with wifi. While most people say the EDGE on the iPhone is a weak point, it is good enough for maps and most browsing and (duh) coverage is much better.

I'd go as far as to say that maps and Internet are useless without that kind of coverage.

But this is Nokia. Who says they can't put all that in a phone?

I think Nokia expects everybody who buys this to already have a phone with bluetooth that this device can use as a modem. The advantage of this approach is that you can use EDGE, GPRS, 3G or whatever else your phone and current network supports. Chances are if you're out and about, you'll have your phone on you.

This was never intended to replace your mobile phone, but to complement it.
