Interesting reading. Apparently the poor 3G reception is a worldwide issue and possibly hardware based.
I can honestly say that I don't have poor 3G reception. It's not great at home but it wasn't better with my TyTN II - the loss of signal strength at home is caused by the winter garden's metal framing.

I get 5 bars in my office and even had 2 bars of reception while working in the server room, 2 levels below ground today :-)

The reason for the apparent world-wide 3G signal strength issue is the fact that most 3G networks world-wide simply suck. Building 3G networks requires a crapload of antennas and covering a wide area is much harder than with GSM.
