I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord! - 2

Femtocell is no female contraceptive product. Femto, actually is an SI unit - 10-15. And, Femtocell is a technology. In three words - cell-to-wifi.
This could be revolutionary in days to come, this technology enables a user to seamlessly move from a cell phone network to a home based wi-fi network and vice-versa, and that too without breaking ones yap-yap (read: conversation).
Interestingly enough this is being introduced by cellular carriers, in the US Sprint Nextel branded AIRAVE. The home base is nothing but a modem like device that connects to the Internet. Sprint Nextel offers this for $50 for the device and $15/user/mo. for unlimited voice from wi-fi + cell phone plan cost + broadband cost.
Wonder what a dent Meraki can make?
My prayer - Where are you Skype?
