Mystery solved: AT&T's iPhone Wi-Fi is coming, but not ready yet

We received this internal memo to AT&T employees describing a failed launch today of AT&T’s WiFi service. From the memo:

“The iPhone Wi-Fi offer that was scheduled to launch today has been canceled. Nothing has been announced by the company to our customers and will not impact existing customers. Additional communication will be provided if the status the project changes.”

This appears to be the same service we spotted at Starbucks ten days ago. This could be a move to make pre-3G iPhone users feel less left out in the bandwidth department, but also let’s hope they have a strong upgrade path for existing users.
