Freeing Users to Access and Edit Documents While They Talk
VANCOUVER, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - CounterPath Corporation (TSX-V: CCV; OTCBB:
CPAH), an award-winning provider of desktop and mobile VoIP software
solutions, today announced the worldwide availability of Bria iPhone
Edition Version 1.1 for Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Compatible
with Apple's new iOS 4 operating system, Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 is a
highly secure, standards-based VoIP softphone that works over both 3G
and Wi-Fi networks.
Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 leverages iOS 4 to deliver to Bria users' their
most requested feature: multitasking on the iPhone, freeing them to stay
productive while waiting for calls. This freedom is particularly
valuable for iPhone users that need to reference other applications
while on a call, enhancing the device's value as a business tool. When
Apple releases iOS 4 for the iPad, Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 will
immediately and automatically extend its multitasking features to that
Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 also features support for up to eight accounts,
so users can create a separate account - including a separate number -
for each aspect of their life, such as work home or on the move. Bria
users now simply log in once to stay connected to all of their accounts
throughout their day. Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 also lets users create a
separate dialing plan for each account to ensure that each call is
Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 also fully supports older devices running iPhone
3.0 and is ideal for the growing number of SMEs, large enterprises and
governments that are deploying iPhones, the iPod touch and iPads for
mobile workers, many of whom require full access to their communications
services while away from their desk or office. Bria iPhone Edition
leverages the iPhone's native address book and its embedded Bluetooth
technology to provide a seamless calling experience while on the move.
"Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 takes Mobile VoIP to the next level by enabling
iPhone users to take one or more of their VoIP accounts mobile." said
Todd Carothers, VP Product Management CounterPath. "Now with full
multitasking and multi-account support, Bria liberates iOS 4 users by
truly un-tethering them from the desktop. Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 is the
latest example of CounterPath's commitment to the burgeoning Mobile VoIP
