Telekom Austria (www.telekomaustria.com) offered some brief comments that shed little light to the company’s future HD voice rollouts.
Vipnet, the Croatian subsidiary offering mobile HD voice, is currently supporting the technology through AMR-WB on the Nokia E5 handset. More handsets are expected, including “HTC and Sony Ericsson that have announced HD voice devices launches for the end of this year or beginning of 2011.”
Beyond that, the company isn’t talking: “Concerning TAG overall, we cannot disclose roadmaps for WB-AMR; of course we support all companies at their Core Network & Terminal synergies and knowledge sharing where possible.
Certainly we stay tuned for the future, e.g working on innovative P&S for the customer.”
