Dialed In 81: AT&T speeds up (or at least promises to do so)

Nicole chimes in with some Samsung Jitterbug news and Kent catches us up on AT&T's 3G expansion, Nokia's Ovi Store, and a possible release date for the new iPhone. Listen in to get the full scoop on all the latest mobile news, a taste of our latest reviews, and answers to your questions.
