3G launched in UK

The Guardian reports “Launching today, 3’s new mobile phone service is overpriced and only marginally better than that offered by Vodaphone (sic) Live!’s 2.5G”. In this Reuters article Keith Bradley of 3 UK said “…now we just have to deliver the handsets”. Computer Weekly quotes Ovum as recommending that “corporate users use … GPRS” while the FT notes “Hutchinson (sic) launches 3G to little fanfare”, The Register doesn’t mention it at all.
