LOS ANGELES, April 12 /CNW/ - WiFiMobile today launched a Mobile VOIP
service on the Nokia S60 handsets which enables users to make free calls to
each other over Wi-Fi regardless of location. Mobile VOIP calls can also be
made where no Wi-Fi connection is available by utilising a network operator

basic service users can call other VOIP users completely for free. A premium
service is also available that permits calls to be made to ordinary landlines
or mobile phones at heavily discounted costs.

WiFiMobile also enables VOIP calls to be made over a conventional GSM service
by routing the call over an existing 3G data plan. In either of these
situations VOIP calls will not eat up any bundled voice minutes.
