VOICE AND VIDEO over IP on handhelds enabler Fring has added to its range by launching Fringout, which offers international calling.
Fring rivals Apple's Facetime, which currently works over WiFi only and has already managed to alienate and fall out with Skype. Now Fring has increased its range and is offering international calls that are almost free and easy to use.
According to its blurbs, Fringout offers international calling rates for as little as 1¢ a minute and works directly from its mobile application, which should let its ten of millions of users chatter incessantly for very long periods of time.
"Hundreds of millions of people have tried low-cost Internet calling on their PC or through restricted mobile offerings. With the launch of Fringout, fringsters can benefit from Internet calling with the convenience of mobile without cumbersome wires and cables," said Avi Shechter, co-founder and CEO of Fring.
"The Fringout service joins our leading video service, to create a fun, Internet-rich, cost-effective mobile experience for our thriving community of tens of millions of fringsters."
Fringout is currently available for Nokia's S60 Symbian-based handsets, while Iphone and Android versions are set to follow shortly. µ
