    Doesn't look bad. I'm interested to see the specs. Will still hold out for the Microsoft flagship regardless.

    ATT has had HD voice for quite some time. Does it work between ATT and Verizon(like if I call using HD voice and the person I'm calling has HD voice on Verizon?)

    That I don't know, but it would be reallllly nice if that were the case. However from this quoted info below...it looks like it will be restricted to calls within the Verizon 4G network (so only Verizon phone to Verizon phone). Oh and, of course this is an *extra* feature that must be subscribed/paid to Verizon.

    Advanced Calling 1.0 Requirements: HD Voice requires both parties to use a Verizon HD Voice-enabled phone on Verizons 4G LTE network. Video Calling requires HD Voice and a Video Calling-enabled phone. HD Voice and Video calls are billed like regular voice calls. Data usage also applies to Video Calls. The following features/services are incompatible with Advanced Calling 1.0: prepaid service, Caller Name ID and Slacker Radio Tones. Additional incompatible features apply for Business and Government customers.


    Here's a Verizon FAQ on Advanced Calling...doesn't yet mention Windows phones.
