VoIP over 3G gets the green light for the iPhone from AT&T
AT&T has decided to allow the iPhone to support VoIP over 3G. Prior to the decision by the wireless operator, the iPhone was able to support VoIP over Wi-Fi only. AT&T informed Apple and the FCC of its decision, which will allow apps like Skype to handle phone calls on the go. The decision will also pave the way for developers to get to work on other VoIP programs for the App Store. They may not know it (probably they do), but AT&T has made a lot of iPhone users very happy today.

This is pretty much a slap in the face to Google, having their Google Voice app rejected by the app store.

Agreed. Maybe the FCC's involvement in that issue is influencing this decision today. PhoneArena, Google Voice is now available at the App Store, so it should work for VoIP too, right? Also, can an iPod Touch connected over WiFi make VoIP with these apps as well? Thanks
