AT&T is finally activating the HD Voice in its network starting from the 23rd of May but this comes with a catch, in fact more than one catches. When we say HD Voice, we mean the VoLTE-based version which clearly means that an LTE network will be required which must not be confused with the standard HD Voice. However, you can still keep using the data while talking. Before you start getting happy about this new announcement, there are a few things which might put you down in the spirits.
The HD Voice is not going to reach all areas; AT&T has only decided to roll out the new HD Voice in selected areas and in order for two people to communicate, they both need to be in those areas where the HD Voice has been activated and this are the parts of Illinois, Indiana, Minneapolis and Wisconsin. Moreover, you also need an HD Voice-enabled phone and so far only the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini qualifies. And surprisingly, not even the bigger Galaxy S4, or the newer Galaxy S5 fall under this category.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
