Gameloft, one of the largest game makers for Android and other mobile devices, has just announced a partnership with Verizon Wireless to bring in-game voice chat to several of their games via Verizon's 4G LTE network. The first game to get the voice chat treatment will be Asphalt 6. Now, you will be able to smack-talk your friends into submission while you are beating them. They haven't really specified what other games will be getting the service yet, but you can probably bet they plan to bring it to most (if not all) of their multiplayer games. Here's a quote from Gameloft's blog and you can check out the video above for a demonstration of the service:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Verizon to illustrate the potential of in-game voice chat and multiplayer over the 4G LTE network,” said Baudouin Corman, vice president of Publishing for the Americas at Gameloft. “Gameloft seeks to provide gamers with a complete mobile gaming experience and feels that these features are at the forefront of the platform’s future.”
