While Sprint's iDEN network is getting the axe in favor of a new CDMA setup, AT&T will soon be sprucing up its near absent push-to-talk services. Targeting a November release with plans starting around $30, Ma Bell's enhanced PTT will be compatible with smartphones running Android 2.3+, BlackBerry 7, Windows Phone 8 and even Java-powered feature phones. In addition to playing nice with a variety of mobile platforms, this new service will also work across laptops, tablets and smart cars.

Hoping to entice some of Sprint's potential iDEN castaways, AT&T's push-to-talk services will work abroad and offer simultaneous voice and data for those of you who dig that sort of thing. So, if you're a prospecting business customer looking to stay connected, you can score discounted pricing and early access to the service by pre-registering at the source link below.
