AT&T and T-Mobile Android users can download Vonage Mobile later today at the Vonage Web site. The service is already available for the iPhone, BlackBerry and iPod touch. Vonage Mobile is touted as offering high-quality, outbound international calling over Wi-Fi and cellular networks, as well as free domestic calls over Wi-Fi.
“We are focused on ensuring that our customers can enjoy all the benefits of their Vonage service from any location using any device that can access the Internet,” said Michael Tempora, senior vice president of product management. “We will continue to expand our offerings in 2010 to include a robust set of voice and messaging services that utilize Wi-Fi and 3G wireless networks.”
The Vonage Mobile application gives customers the flexibility to choose between Vonage World Mobile, which includes unlimited international calling to more than 60 countries, and Vonage Mobile Pay-Per-Use. The latter provides savings of more than 50 percent – compared to rates charged by wireless carriers – for calls to dozens of countries, according to the company.
With Vonage Mobile, there are no access numbers or new phone numbers to give to friends and family. Customers enter an international number or select a contact from the existing contacts on a mobile device and hit send.
