Nimbuzz has launched what it describes as: the most comprehensive VoIP application for the iPhone. With free wi-fi calls to Instant Messaging (IM) buddies already available, new additions include the introduction of a dial-pad and the ability to make VoIP calls to landlines and mobiles via Skype-Out, and Nimbuzzs major SIP provider partners, including Gizmo5, Vyke, and SIPgate over wi-fi, effectively turning the iPod touch into an iPhone.
Nimbuzz says that it bridges the iPhone VoIP gap by allowing VoIP calls over 3G via its Dial-Up VoIP option in over 50 countries. It allows iPhone users to call (international) mobile and landlines at significantly reduced costs, by dialling a local access number that connects to anywhere in the world via Nimbuzz VoIP servers.
New VoIP call options are available via Nimbuzzs global affiliate SIP partners: Gizmo5, Vyke, SIPgate, and 7 other global players. These additional call networks, says Nimbuzz, are seamlessly integrated into the interface to use Nimbuzz for cheap (international) VoIP calls to landlines and mobile phones over wi-fi.
Another feature allows Twitter updates via the Personal Message option. Popular communities, including Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, Google Talk, AIM, and social networks such as Facebook and MySpace, are already supported with call and chat options.
The fact that Nimbuzz adds a new user around every four seconds is partly due to our successful iPhone application launched in November last year, says Nimbuzz CEO, Evert Jaap Lugt. We are a mass-market lifestyle application and are keen to ensure we keep up to date with the needs of the hyper-connected, so this update reflects initial feedback from our users.
