Verizon Completes First Ever Voice Over LTE Call on a Commercial Network

Today Verizon Chief Technology Officer Tony Melone has reported that Verizon has accomplished the very first VoLTE (voice over LTE) call ever on a commercial network. The call was made on Tuesday, February 8th at 9:45 AM ET and was made with an LG Revolution 4G, which we just happen to have a video of since we saw this device in person at CES 2011. What does this call mean for the world of mobile? It basically means that not only will Verizon 4G LTE users now be able to talk and browse the internet at the same time, the rest of the world has made a bigger step toward simultaneous voice and data for everyone.

Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

When Samsung released the Galaxy S seven months ago, they promised users a quick upgrade path to Android 2.2 (Froyo). But that was seven months ago, and so far, nothing, even though Android 2.3 is already on the market and Android 2.4 is coming soon. But there just may be some hope, though it may be faint.

Android 2.2 Froyo and some serious customization are in evidence too; check out our full hands-on impressions - and video - after the cut.

Notion Ink Battles Insinuations of Unevenly Bright Screens, Broken Cameras, Customer Service Stalls

It appears, if a few folks over at NotionAddicts messageboard are any indication, that Notion Ink is facing some heavy allegations from the first round of pre-order customers.

Droid Pro Review

Droid Pro Review

Android devices may be storming the market in terms of sheer numbers but, with a few unusual exceptions, most manufacturers have stuck to basic touchscreen candybars or horizontal QWERTY sliders.
