TGIF and let this never happen to you: Shark Tank Collapses At The Scientific Center In Kuwait
Android Central is reporting:
We had a bad feeling that when the Skype Mobile app for Android was updated late last night and seemingly allowed calls over Wifi, things were a little too good to be true. And sure enough, they were. At left here is the original description for Version 188.8.131.52, which tells of “Simultaneous Wifi & 3G.” That would have been a big deal because the app so far had only worked over Verizon 3G, forcing you to use its data connection, which of course you’re paying for. And that, of course, is ridiculous, though you can see Verizon’s intent — it keeps you from buying an unactivated phone and using it as a Wifi VOIP phone when instead you could be burning through your monthly data allotment.
Oh, the beauty of Android. It’s so open that the cellphone carriers dictate what you can and cannot do. Very open indeed…
I’ll use an iPhone, thank you very much. AT&T is a piece of crap, but you know what? Skype (and other VoIP apps) work over WI-FI. And you know what else? The phone, the OS, the apps, the memory management, the UX, the UI and every little detail works. Plus I don’t have an ugly Verizon logo in it and the battery life is actually hours and not mere minutes as in the Android Phones.
