Rumor: T-Mobile to Test UMA Calling with Android Handsets
The Boy Genius Report just tossed up a very quick post telling the world that T-Mobile is expected to start testing UMA on Android handsets in the third quarter. For those of you who don’t know what this means, we’ll give you a few details.
Unlicensed Mobile Access lets users switch from GSM to 802.11 technologies. Calls can jump from cell tower to WiFi without dropping and vice versa. Carriers love it because it lessens the strain on their network while customers enjoy perfect signal wherever there is a hotspot. Customers can potentially save money too because they won’t be using minutes for calls, messages, etc.
Anyone else half as excited as us over this?
