Windows Phone 8 to integrate Rich Communication Suite services


We have read earlier that Windows Phone 8 offer carrier more customization.  Now the Verge reports one of the ways would actually be quite welcome.

According to their sources Windows Phone 8 will support RCS-e (Rich Communication Suite-enhanced), which would allow carriers to move beyond SMS to other value-added data services such as VOIP, file transfer messaging and would present itself as a native service to the user, much like SMS does at present.

The technology would for example allow VOIP phone calls to be made directly from the dialler exactly as normal circuit-switched phone calls are made currently.
