I talked with Comcast today; this is beyond a "limited" release. Comcast has just relatively quiet (don't want to scare Verizon or AT&T into anything rash, eh? :)

1) Comcast "slow rolled" HomePoint in Florida and started advertising the service today (Monday, October 12) in Denver. The service has also been quietly rolled out in other markets, so Comcast customers will likely hear more shortly.

2) HomePoint uses Casabi and SIP to deliver the bells and whistles of news-on-your-phone, email, and other stuff; SMS to the handset is on the to-do rollout...Casabi uses a light-client/heavy server model, so you get a mini-web client on the phone..

3) The handset supports DECT 6.0, but no word yet if it supports CAT-iq and/or G.722 -- the precursors for HD Voice; I'm waiting for Comcast to get back to me.

4) AT&T has experimented with Casabi-based services (i.e. light client SIP to the phone to deliver data) before, but it's AT&T and ... well, I'm not going there at the moment...
