TeliaSonera taps Kineto for UMA

wVoIP has certainly been the talk of the industry this week: Orange's announcement yesterday, today's T-Mobile USA feature in the WSJ (as covered in today's top story) and now the Swedish carrier TeliaSonera's announcement that it plans to offer a UMA-based wVoIP service powered by Kineto. The carrier has been testing out Kineto's UMA solution since last year, but plans to announce the dual WiFi/cellular service called "Home Free" today. The initial dual-mode handset for the service will be the Samsung P200.
