AT&T adding mobile capabilities to U-verse

AT&T (NYSE:T) is planning to bring more mobile capabilities to its U-verse platform in 2014. According to Light Reading, the operator is working at its Foundry Innovation Center in Atlanta on a method to send photos over Wi-Fi to the TV using the U-verse platform.

Light Reading also reports that AT&T has a U-Verse phone finder capability to help users locate a lost phone when they are in their house as well as a caller ID service that flashes the caller's name on the TV screen.

AT&T opened the Atlanta-based Foundry center earlier this week. The center will be home to the company's latest developments in Digital Life, its home automation and security service, as well as the connected car, emerging devices and AT&T's U-verse service.

Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) is the host sponsor of the facility, and the company said it will help bring in third-party developers, investors, startups and entrepreneurs from around the world to work on projects.
