AT&T 3G Microcell (Femtocell) Slated To Be Released Soon

When we spoke about AT&T FemtoCell  (called “3G Microcell) (AT&T 3G MicroCell Coming At The End Of 2009!) and when it briefly appeared and disappered from AT&T website (AT&T 3G MicroCell Out But Where?).
Well an article on Yahoo says that it is comming soon! Again.
I wish I can stop saying "Hello Hello Can you hear me?, repeat, and mouth bad words. So if this Femto Cell comes out I will get one untill at least till my AT&T contract runs out.
If you are wondering what Femtocell is? it is a sort of a mini cell tower, which connects to the broadband connection at one end and  the other end it an antenna for cell phones. It is aimed at improving indoor network coverage (as much as 5,000 square feet), providing low-cost unlimited in-home voice calling plan and reducing monthly communication expenditure.
So no wonder carriers are looking into this as it extends the coverage well beyond their cell towers. Verizon hub and a device from Sprint already provides similar service to their customers.
