WiFiMobile officially launched at CTIA, Florida.
[ClickPress, Tue Apr 10 2007] WiFiMobile today launched a Mobile VOIP service on the Nokia S60 handsets which enables users to make free calls to each other over Wi-Fi regardless of location. Mobile VOIP calls can also be made where no Wi-Fi connection is available by utilising a network operator data plan.
The WiFiMobile service is available at www.wifimobile.com. Using the basic service users can call other VOIP users completely for free. A premium service is also available that permits calls to be made to ordinary landlines or mobile phones at heavily discounted costs.
Calls can be made when the user is in a Wi-Fi zone. Alternatively WiFiMobile also enables VOIP calls to be made over a conventional GSM service by routing the call over an existing 3G data plan. In either of these situations VOIP calls will not eat up any bundled voice minutes.
Configuration is as easy as entering your existing mobile phone number and receiving a text ? no need for manual configuration of complicated parameters.
An additional available feature that will be attractive to corporate users is that they can immediately use select Nokia S60 devices as an extension to their corporate IP PBX. This allows IT/Telecom Managers to carefully control their company?s continuously escalating mobile phone costs. IT Managers can re-program VOIP parameters for all of their employees? mobiles at the touch of a button.
Founder and CEO Gerry O?Prey says: ?Thanks to WiFiMobile gone are the days of having to configure complicated SIP settings. Just go on our web site enter your details and your mobile will have VOIP service or be connected to your corporate IP PBX at the touch of a button. This will make mobile VOIP a reality for both the employee and IT Manager?.
