If you've been sitting, wishing and waiting for your Android handset to let you make free data-based calls, then today's your lucky day. Our chums over at Engadget Spanish have discovered that WhatsApp's long-promised voice calling is now available to everyone. Once updated, the app provides a new tab that'll let you dial friends on top of texting them. So how does it work? I gave it a whirl over here in France, calling my colleague Richard Lai in Hong Kong. The quality was pretty clear, though there was a delay of at least a few seconds -- though that's typical of any VOIP service (hello, Skype) and a redial might've cleared it up. Also, we are 6,000 miles apart.
