    Apparently to combat spotty cell phone coverage for the iphone, AT&T is going to market mini-hubs to act as a sort of cell phone tower for users.

    The gist of it is that it will transfer your call over the internet but will still cost you minutes. The cost for one of these beauties is expected to be around $150.

    Here's the link: AT and T to Offer at-Home Mini-Towers for Improved Cell Signal - NYTimes.com

    Thoughts?

    It's called a femtocell, and they work quite well, generally speaking. I'm really surprised ATT doesn't have these yet. I just hope people don't put these on an ATT@home service...
