T-Mobile Germany is starting a pilot launch of T-One, a service similar to one due to arrive in the US this summer. Using phones such as the Nokia e60 and n80, subscribers will be able to use T-Mobile's GSM and UMTS networks as well as seamlessly switch to T-Com's Wi-Fi hotspots for both calls and data access. When the service launches T-Mobile will also offer compatible PC cards and laptops for data-only users, and are expected to launch additional handsets. T-One is not based on UMA as suspected, but rather on SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). T-Mobile US is expected to offer subscribers a compatible Wi-Fi access point so they can use compatible phones over Wi-Fi in their homes in addition to Starbucks and other T-Mobile hotspot locations.

Who cares. T-Mobile won't even be around in the US much longer when they get bought out.

Terrible service and terrible customer service.
yea thats true.. UMA will be interesting..
China Mobile is looking to become a world player. Hooking up with T-mobile will allow them a world wide position. The move would allow both access to great markets.

No home service available?

According to the story

the service will only work with the T-Mo hotspots, and not with home networks. I really have to ask what is the point then? I get almost no service at home, to the point where my phone will not reliably ring if someone calls, my wife's phone gets no service at all. At home is where this would bridge the service gap for many ppl. Most of the t-mo hotspots that I know of are in places that get great coverage, and there is no reason to double up by using the internet.

Questions, comments, verbal abuse?
that is a very good comment, someone should should bring this to the man's attention at tmobile, as far as getting service at your house, just get a cell phone repeater, they work great
not to leak info....but lemme just say that, in america, this won't be a problem
