Verizon wireless announced today that they have completed the first ever voice call over LTE, using a pair of Android powered LG Revolution smartphones. Rumors have been flying about the phone launching with voice and data over LTE, but we can stop those right now -- Verizon will be using 2011 to optimize the process, and "commercial services" will become available in 2012.
While on test calls, simultaneous voice and data was tested with online chat, web browsing, and using the Android Market. There will be further demos at Mobile World Congress, and we'll be sure to have a look.
From all reports, this looks like a very successful test and things are pushing forward -- with Android leading the way. Read the full press release after the break. [Verizon]
