Dutch Start-up Goes 'Live' in the Build-up to its Launch on 23 November
VOORSCHOTEN, The Netherlands, Nov. 14 /CNW/ - Wizzl, a new online
communication provider based in the Netherlands, is preparing to launch a
virtual phone that is unlike anything anyone has used before. As of today,
Wizzl offers the general public a preliminary beta version.
Over the last three years Wizzl has developed free communication software
which will allow its users ('Wizzlers') to make free voice and video calls
over the internet, and calls to local and international phones and mobiles
from only 1.5 Eurocents per minute. And it doesn't stop there; with Wizzl's
all-in-one virtual phone, Wizzlers will have direct access to live TV,
internet radio stations and the most popular web games around. Personal
photographs, music and videos will also be at users' fingertips.
"I am proud that, after years of hard work, we can finally present Wizzl
to the outside world," says Jaap Korevaar, CEO of Wizzl. "With our young and
enthusiastic team all the ingredients are there to be providers of the first
worldwide, all-in-one virtual phone that not only brings your friends and
family together for free, but also gives you free and direct access to all the
action, wherever you are, and whatever your communication device."
Expanding on Wizzl's present features, Jaap Korevaar continues, "Wizzl
offers a global rate of 1.5 Eurocents per minute for calling phones and
mobiles in over 50 popular destinations across the world, and connects to over
70 international destinations not available with other internet telephony
software. Unlike other online VoIP services, Wizzl software does not depend on
super nodes; which is good news for processing speeds and even better news for
bandwidth usage. On 23 November, we will officially launch the beta version
for desktops and laptops. But I invite all interested people to get connected
today and be among the first to discover the possibilities of Wizzl with us.
And in the spring of 2008, Wizzl will also be available for mobile phones."
The worldwide press launch - where Wizzl will explain in detail what
Wizzl is all about, its vision and its possibilities - will be at GamePlay,
the largest game event of the Benelux. GamePlay will take place between 23 and
25 November 2007 in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht (the Netherlands) and will be
powered by Wizzl. Information is available through Pride PR.
The preliminary beta version of Wizzl's all-in-one virtual phone can be
downloaded via www.wizzl.com for free. First-time downloaders get up to
10 minutes of free calling time to landlines and mobile phones across the
world. And of course, Wizzler-to-Wizzler voice and video calls are completely
free of charge.
Wizzl is the Dutch initiative of some enthusiastic software developers
and passionate entrepreneurs who are proudly launching their new,
Netherlands-based online communication provider following three years of hard
work. Wizzl is the first all-in-one virtual phone that allows you to talk,
chat, cam, listen to internet radio, watch online TV and play games all at the
same time and totally free of charge, wherever you are and whatever your
device. And this is only the beginning. Wizzl is located at the House of
Vision at Rouwkooplaan 5, 2251 AP Voorschoten, The Netherlands. More
