VoIP telephony on mobile devices
“It is not the first time we bring VoIP-telephony to the headlines, but in light of the recent events, the community of Skype (and the like) users may grow even bigger. In this review we are spotlighting new versions of Fring for the users of S60-powered smartphones, as well as devices running on Windows Mobile. Fring is positioned as a new environment for voice communication over IP. What’s more important, the client is not a mere gateway to other similar networks. Apart from Skype, Google Talk, MSM, Twitter and SIP, this application also provides for direct communication with the members of fring community, meaning that it is a full-fledged mobile client boasting own communication network, which the developers are currently building up full tilt. The recently released version of fring for Windows Mobile-devices stands as a sort of challenge to Skype. On closer examination, fring turns out to be less hardware-hungry and seamlessly runs even on devices, which Skype can’t get on well with.The list of supported devices features nearly all popular communicators. Nonetheless, even if you can’t find your gadget there, you always have the option of downloading the cab-installer and trying it out. Specifically, we checked fring’s compatibility with the BenQ-Siemens P51 communicator that comes pre-installed with Skype mobile – this allowed us to put these applications head to head within one and the same hardware platform.” Read more here:
