AT&T has high hopes for their U-Verse service, which is AT&T's fancy term for their high speed internet, TV, and voice telephone package. It all works over the Internet and some believe that this is the direction that television is headed. So how does the iPhone fit into all this?
Well, obviously we all know that AT&T is the exclusive carrier for the iPhone, so some high ranking suit probably thought it'd be a great idea to create synergy with their most popular phone and their next big money maker. How well will they play together? The iPhone's U-Verse features will include having Visual Voicemail play through your TV, the option to download shows from your DVR to your iPhone, using the iPhone as a true remote, and even for giggles like hurling virtual tomatoes at the screen.
Sure, it may sound gimmicky but it looks to be good business for AT&T. And hey, throwing tomatoes? That's always fun.
