Cingular scaling back 3G plans?

According to Deutsche Bank analysts, Cingular Wireless is only planning to deploy 3G service in 12 to 15 cities, not the 15 to 20 cities originally promised. The opinion is based on data from suppliers and other sources. The analysts believe Cingular is simply too busy to keep up with the original launch plan and that a scaled back deployment is "more realistic." Verizon Wireless already has 3G deployed in 32 cities.
