Vopium launches Wi-Fi calling app for BlackBerry

Offers least-cost routing to both mobile and landline numbers

By CBR Staff Writer

Vopium has introduced Wi-Fi calling app for BlackBerry which provides consumers and business users with free international and domestic Wi-Fi calls, as well as international calls over GSM and CDMA for as little as less than 1 cent per minute.

The Vopium app design provides users significant savings with no trade-offs in call quality and does not require users to connect with a local call

The new app offers least-cost routing to both mobile and landline numbers whenever user is connected to Wi-Fi and makes it easy for users to know if they are connected to and placing calls via Wi-Fi. Vopium designed the app to minimise battery consumption, so users can make frequent Wi-Fi calls and still have battery life that lasts at least a full day.

Wi-Fi calls and text messages are free if the other party also has a Vopium app on their Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian or Windows Mobile smartphone.

Vopium founder and CEO Tanveer Sharif said the new Vopium BlackBerry app is the latest example of Vopium’s commitment to provide consumers and business users with high-quality, low-cost international and domestic calling.

"Unlike other Wi-Fi calling apps that rely on bridging and other limited architectures, the Vopium BlackBerry app frees users to make calls in more places and on their terms. No other BlackBerry Wi-Fi calling app can match Vopium’s combination of savings, convenience, battery life, wireline interoperability and mobile operator independence. This app democratizes Wi-Fi calling for BlackBerry users, with no caveats and gotchas," said Sharif.
