BT's BluePhone is Finally Here

Story Text:

We've talked about BluePhone once or twice in the past, now both BBC and Register are reporting that the UK telecom giant will finally roll out BT Fusion aka BluePhone....

The service, called BT Fusion, uses a specially-equipped mobile phone to access BT's fixed-line network when making calls at home or in the office.

On the move the hybrid service will connect to Vodafone's wireless network. BT hopes that the service will counter both mobile networks and upstarts offering cheap internet telephony.
