Apple and Carriers quietly raise 3G app download limit to 20MB

This one sort of slipped through the cracks on us, but AT&T and Apple have doubled the size of the “over the air” app downloads to 20MB.  The update came sometime earlier this week.  Is this a good move?  Perhaps AT&T is getting cocky with all of that extra bandwidth they have laying around.

Update: We’re hearing that the limit was raised in Germany and Canada as well, so we’re going out on a limb and saying it is global. We are also seeing that Apple has raised the 12MB download limit in the iPhone’s iTunes app to 20MB as well.
