Android UMA Phones Coming Soon?

We’ve long heard Android owners cries for a UMA enabled Android device, and it looks like those tears just might have paid off. According to the folks over at BoyGenius, Magenta will be testing UMA calling on Android device starting Q3 of this year (Its about time). For those that don’t know what UMA is, Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) is a technology that allows a UMA capable mobile phone to seamlessly switch back and forth between mobile phone networks and local wireless WiFi networks. So if you’re in a spotty coverage area (or if you don’t have the best coverage indoors), you would be able to make calls over your WiFi connection. Pretty cool right?  We’re working on confirming this with our sources, so until further notice, please take this with a grain of salt.
