T-Mobile steps up WiFi Calling on Android Phones

San Francisco California- Here amongst the all stars at the 2010 CTIA Enterprise and Applications show T-Mobile USA announced that it is stepping up it’s wi-fi calling offerings via it’s line up of Android devices. The next two Android powered handsets to hit the T-mobile store shelves, the My Touch HD and the Motorola Defy will both offer Wifi calling.
