Apple, AT&T, And Google; Comments on App Rejection Today


According to USA Today, Apple AT&T and Google are suppose to state the reasons to the US Federal Communications Commission why Google's free voice application (Google Voice) was rejected from the Apple store.

Apple (AAPL) and AT&T (T) Friday are expected to tell the Federal Communications Commission why Google's free voice application, called Google Voice, is banned from the Apple iPhone. Google is also filing comments.

Moreover, the report also states that Google may also be facing problems in which handsets with the company's mobile operating system for wireless devices can not use Voice Over Protocol service (VoIP) from skype.

Why: Consumers who use Android, the Google-developed operating system for wireless devices, can't use Skype, a leading Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. A pioneer in free Internet calling, Skype allows you to talk as long as you want without draining cellphone minutes.

Android users get Skype Lite, a watered-down version of the original that routes calls over traditional phone networks — not the Internet. As a result, long-distance calls are still cheap or free, but cellphone minutes are gobbled up every time a Skype Lite call is made.
