    T-Mobile to bundle Wi-Fi Calling app with future Android devices?
    By Sean Hollister posted Sep 26th 2010 5:19PM
    Yesterday, we saw that LG's Optimus One might ship with WiFi calling, and that's all well and good, but a new leak suggests the Optimus was just the tip of a UMA iceberg to come. The above picture is one of several allegedly leaked training slides obtained by TmoNews, highlighting a dedicated "Wi-Fi Calling" app that may come pre-installed on upcoming Android devices, one of which just might be that new T-Mobile G2. Before you raid your piggybank in hopes of free VoIP calls, however, know that this app-ified brand of WiFi calling isn't necessarily the seamless switching solution we've wanted all along; that little yellow "limitations" tab reportedly explains that as soon as you leave the WiFi radius, you effectively drop your call.

    I just hope in some way this gets put on the Vibrant. It would be nice not to fork out the dough for another device right now. Here are a couple of other stories about this app, the TmoNews article has some internal T-Mobile screen shots of the app. :)
