Massive Multiplayer iPhone game

Hi guys, long time lurker/iphone player-

I know Galcon is probably the best Real time multiplayer game on the iPhone, however, is there a reason there are not many more of these games that use CDMA/3G ? I was thinking about developing a game that can be played with zones able to support 100 people concurrently and also a ping of under 300ms would be excellent. Developers, what do you think about the technical possibilities?

I would love to see a phantasy star online styled game where 4 people can adventure and defeat enemies as a party, while it's not a huge mmo thing it would still be rather cool.

Whatever happened to Graal Zone?
It wasn't very good but had lots of potential, and it was an MMO

We are submitting a new version of it again in a few weeks now that we got some more experience with the device and the multiplayer capabilities. We are also working on some more multiplayer online games
The iPhone is quite interesting for multiplayer games, although you can't expect good pings with 3G/Edge.
