The article discusses the problem of handset availability and voice-over-wireless-local-area-network (VOWLAN)/cellular services. In-Stat reports that the availability of suitable handsets could cause the slow development of the market for converged VOWLAN/cellular services despite consumers being enthusiastic about the billing and service plans provided by it. David Chamberlain of In-Stat says that there is an unprecedented interest in home-zone pricing that offers unlimited local and domestic long-distance calls for a single flat fee when the customer uses a home Wi-Fi access point or hot spot that is possible due to VOWLAN/cellular technology.
