LG's new CL400 UMA WiFi phone

LG CL400

For those of you not yet familiar with UMA, it's the rather perplexing and even somehow paradoxical standard being espoused by handset makers and shockingly enough even some carriers, that allows WiFi-enabled cellphones to move calls off cellular and onto WiFi (and back again) in real time. Well, it looks like that's a bandwagon LG wanted onto, and their new tri-band WiFi-enabled CL400 features—you guessed it—UMA. No, it's most assuredly not coming out here, but every handset maker and every device that's got UMA is another step toward a world where WiFi and cellular calling aren't heavily differentiated—one we're looking forward to immensely.
