    Can i call on ipad3?

    Not so true: when you use mac with internet connection (wire or wireless), you can setup google voice to make/receive calls through home phone (or cell phone?) as well as text by mac; no TaT needed. I think a big advantage from TaT is that using it with ipad makes ipad become a virtual wireless...
