    I've seen the voice app in demo videos, so I know it exists. Check the marketplace?

    Actually Android has support for Google Voice built in but it's currently SMS only. There is no Voice over Data or VOIP integration at this time.

    It was my understanding that the current google voice for Android does allow for voice but not through data/voip. What I mean is your phone will use your minutes but you still use your gv number. You can also receive voicemails, sms, etc.

    But an all data version is not out yet.

    Am I correct Admin?

    not admin, but you are correct.....I have been using it on my droid that way since November.....just don't make the mistake of thinking that google voice is voip and therefore doesn't use minutes.....this is wrong and alot of people are under the assumption that gv gives you voip, it does not.

    I understand that Google Voice will, at this implementation, use minutes. I am left wondering what Google's "master strategy" is for voice calls.

    In a way, I am taking a step backward with the N1 because I am giving up (free and convenient) VOIP that is implemented with our UMA-capable T-Mobile phones. Since the N1 has WiFi there is no technical reason for Google and T-Mobile to have decided not to implement UMA. I infer from this that there must be a Google-driven strategy for voice that involves data.

    Seems like Google Voice fits the bill, they just need to implement VOIP over the data link. Obviously the phone companies are going to resist being relegated to dumb pipes and giving up the margins that go with selling minutes. Why would they do this? As always, the answer is probably that they don't want to, but competition and the inevitable efficiencies from disruptive technologies will force them to abandon the 25 year old model that persists to this day.

    These are just my ignorant musings. Anyone with real information care to comment?
