T-Mobile may extend VoIP with [email protected]

T-Mobile USA has submitted a wireless router for testing by the FCC, several reports indicate. The extrapolation is that T-Mobile intends to extend its wireless hub and HotSpot VoIP capabilities into a full-fledged VoIP landline service. The router appears to support two landline phones and two cellular phones per unit, according to reports.

[email protected], launched in June, allows T-Mobile customers to connect via the firm's cellular network and its 8,500 WiFi hotspot locations across the country. T-Mobile offers two HotSpot-compatible handsets--the Samsung t409 and the Nokia 6086. The handsets themselves sense whether or not WiFi is available.
