If it works out, I'm all for it. Never used an VOiP apps. How is the voice quality (in general)?
The premium ones like Skype and Vonage are actually pretty decent from what I hear as long as you are on decent wifi or 4g, and satisfactory if on 3g. The middle ground ones like Talkatone or GrooveIP are good on wifi, satisfactory on 4g, but not that great on 3g. So it sounds like if Google uses good audio codecs like the premium companies, and has widespread hspa+21 or better, things should be just fine.

Personally I like the idea behind Google being the rebels taking on the Evil Empire of Verizon/AT&T. Since the government won't do much to limit their power, and the general consumer isn't informed enough to do so, Google is taking up the fight for us.
