Three days back I was watching a program named "Techcheck" on MTV . I found a product which sounded me interesting and I thought that I should let you know about it .The product is from a company named Fringland .
What is this fring ?
Fring is a free mobile VoIP software that lets you talk and live chat (IM) using your handset's internet connection instead of costly mobile airtime (GSM) minutes. fring enables free mobile calls over Wi-Fi internet access or your 3G or GPRS Internet data plan and is enhanced with real-time contact availability (presence) so you can see who's available before dialing.
Using this software , you can easily communicate with all your fring, Skype®, MSN® Messenger, ICQ, Google Talk, Twitter and regular phone contacts from one, integrated contact list. Make cheap local and international mobile VoIP calls to contacts PCs and mobile phones and even call-out to landline numbers and regular cellular destinations, as fring also supports SkypeOut and hundreds of SIP-based services such as GizmoProject, VoipCheap, VoipStunt, Free World & SIPNET even from non-SIP enabled handset.
If you have your recipient signed up on Google talk and he is using it on fring or on his PC , you can call them for free.All you have to do is go to fring website , click on download fring or you can click the figure here and start filling the form in next page. Fring is not devoloped for all mobile handsets at this point . In nokia I heard that N series is supported . Im using Sony Ericcson and they are not supporting my handset at this moment . But I saw what other bloggers are saying about this product .
Beyeblog's say " Today I discovered fring, a new mobile technology enabling mobile Voip on smartphones, as my UMTS enabled Nokia N70. I installed the software and start doing some tests... First of all...I called standarn mobile numbers and the quality was very good. Second, I chatted with some of my Skype contacts and the user experience was not so cool as chatting using Agile Messenger, but it worked.. The last cool test was made doing a Skype call from the train I was travelling on to a friend that was on a bad internet connection in India....amazing...we could talk each other!!!"
Crunchgear says" I tested Fring on a Nokia N80 over T-Mobiles network and I never had any problems with it other than forcing a few friends to download and use the app. They thank me everyday, now. In fact, a few friends told me how much better the voice quality was over my haggard Sidekick3. All you need to do is go to Fringâs download page, fill in your information and youâll get the app via SMS. Install is a breeze thanks to the onscreen instructions. What have you got to lose? "
I m very glad to see Mobile network being taken by VOIP these days.I earlier thought of making one such thing for mobile . But some of my friend told me that there are some legal complaints involved in making mobile use VOIP for communication . Data network is very cheaper compared to GSM network . So download Fring today and enjoy free calls to any one anywhere in the world by making them sign up on gtalk or skype .
