Dell Canada and Fongo launched their mobile app two days back. Its a free to download full feature VoIP phone alternative that may help Canadians save money on their mobile phone bills. Dell Voice uses Voice-Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to receive and place calls with users existing data connection1 (i.e. 3G, 4G or WiFi) on the Fibernetics network. Fongo enjoys privileged access to Fibernetics, a Canadian CLEC that owns and operates its own coast-to-coast network in Canada.
"Dell and Fongo want to tilt the competitive playing field by offering smartphone users everything we believe they need in a mobile phone service - for free," says John Stix, co-founder and chief marketing officer of Fongo.
Dell voice is currently available for Android and iPhone devices, and is expected to be launched for Blackberry as well in March 2012.
Fongo is a next generation digital communication platform that can potentially deliver the end of Voice costs for smartphones in Canada.
Fongo's application works on any iPhone, Android based phone and soon BlackBerry. Users receive a brand new Canadian telephone number, free long distance calling to most Canadian cities, unlimited airtime, Voice mail, caller ID and many more free features included.
