Verizon Wireless today announced that it made the first successful voice-over-LTE call using a commercially deployed network. The call was made from its headquarters in Baskin Ridge, N.J., using the LG Revolution, on February 8. Verizon says the first call lasted for 33 seconds, and on subsequent calls participants were able to browse the web and download applications from the Android Market while speaking to one another. Verizon Wireless said that it will spend 2011 working to optimize and enhance the performance of VoLTE. It won't deploy VoLTE commercially until 2012.

It has never been about 'talking about surfing the web at the same time' it is about being able to receive a call while using applications or data. Suppose a call comes through when you are using Pandora, if you are on a GSM network, Pandora shuts o...
