There are 60 compatible AMR-WB devices available on the market, 31 countries with commercial mobile HD voice service, and 36 commercial mobile HD voice networks turned up.
Dated November 22, 2011, the latest report adds Telekom Austria’s A1 network, T-Mobile Czech Republic and Deutsche Telekom in Germany as commercial launches since the release of the last report in October, plus two others which aren’t immediately apparent.
