According to a slide presented at AT&T's investor relations webcast, some prominent features for AT&T's U-Verse service won't come to market until as late as next year. By Q4 this year, photo integration, consumer VoIP, U-Bar and Yellow Pages will launch for U-Verse subscribers. The highly anticipated multi-room DVR, however, won't be out until Q3 of 2008. Caller ID will finally make an appearance in Q4 of 2008. Two HD streams, pair bonding and an "intelligent network interface device" won't be released until Q2 next year.
AT&T also noted that they are currently subscribing about 600 new customers per day and expect to subscribe an average of 1,000 subscribers per week by the end of the year.
