Well you won't suffer from the same spotty 3G issues like those users on T-Mobile but that means you are stuck on a S-L-O-W Edge only connection. To me, if I am going to pay $530 I want a device with 3G.
If you don't mind slow data speeds along with it's premium price, then go for it. If not wait a while as AT&T will have a similar HTC Android device.
*and no wifi only is not good enough for me.

After using the MT3G I couldn't tell the difference between EDGE and 3G but after using this phone I can't understand how people lived with EDGE in the first place. I recommend that you wait for the AT&T 3G android phones to come outSiemens CF62T> Samsung T329 Stripe Black> MyTouch 3G Black (Android 1.6 Donut)> Blackberry Bold 9700 (22.214.171.1240)> Samsung T219 Brown (backup crap dumbphone)> Google/HTC Nexus One (CM7.2)> Google/LG Nexus 4 (Android 4.2.2)

i am running on AT&T and it works great. Reception and voice quality are way better than what I experienced on the 3G iPhone. Edge is adequate in my area (Philly) for Google searches, twitter, traffic updates and Google Nav. I save the web browsing for WiFi. I really don't miss 3G at all (especially the dropped calls) -
disclaimer: work pays for the phone. If I were paying $30mo for data - I would probably insist on 3G too.

On the other hand T-Mobile is very poor here so I would not even attempt to try the Nexus One personally. Whatever works best for you is the way to go.

I noticed the opposite, that the 9700 Bold I had briefly on T-Mobile, was quite noticeably slower than the iPhone 3GS I had jailbroken/unlocked running on T-Mo... BB's are terrible bottlenecks... and I'm not sure if it's 100% the device, or also partially due to BIS... just an extra path for proxy data to take... more lag... more slowness.... Needless to say I'm never getting another BB again... was a HORRIBLE experience...

Honestly its quite fast on EDGE. Anything that I would want to download thats going to be a large file, I will just wait till I'm in a wifi area, or at home.
Browser ect works pretty good. Actually faster than when I had the 3GS...

I do agree about Google Nav. One of the best GPS apps out there currently.

Unless RIM can fix the build quality, OS, and browser in their devices, I won't even think about buying another BB.

I'll keep my Bold to pop in the sim for when I go somewhere near water. As Blackberry goes, it's a nice device, the best IMO,(excepting the Storm which I have next to zero experience with) but I could never go back unless they did some kind of revolutionary update to their OS and UI. Right now I'm an Android(and nexus) guy. Of course, until something better comes along... then I'll jump if it's truly better.

People act like we've never heard of iPhone. If I wanted one I would have one. It's not that hard since I'm on AT&T anyway. Simply does not interest me. Lack of ability to run multiple apps at the same time alone is a deal killer. A smartphone has to be able to multitask out of the box at the very least for me to even consider it.
Now, if Apple decides to realease a device that can run multiple apps at the same time, has a better screen than the Nexus, and better processing, then I'll take a look. Then again, it won't be long until there is a Nexus 3G version for AT&T and then there is always the Nexus Two that is bound to come out.
