The name Kineto may not seem all that familiar, but now that WiFi Calling is a go for the T-Mobile G2, it's a name that you'll probably hear more of in the future. It's the company that's responsible for bringing WiFi Calling to the device, after all. In any event, it looks like they're doing pretty well for themselves, and so they're sharing in their good fortune by going forward with a contest that could see a lucky winner winning a high-end Android phone.
We know people who have gotten the OTA update for their G2’s enabling WiFi Calling and Tethering. However, it seems T-Mobile is not ready to comment, if the push was a mistake, or premature. T-Mobile provided an official response to Phonescoop detailing their stance on what happened. Their response wasn’t the response we were looking for but at least they acknowledged that it would be coming, when in another story.
Word is that users are reportedly being pushed an OTA update for the T-Mobile G2. The update is being said to include WiFi calling capabilities as well as bringing USB Tethering and Portable WiFi Hotspot features to the device.
New information regarding Motorola’s Cliq 2, codenamed “Begonia” has hit the web this week. Not too much information has been released but it is said to feature WiFi calling that we heard word of not too long ago.
