Although this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of a product like this, it’s good to know that people are still plugging away at turning the iPod Touch into an iPhone. Back in December, we heard about a company called Truphone, which also provides VoIP services for your smartphone.
In theory, having a VoIP device sounds good. The problem is the reliability of the service has consistently been lackluster on mobile. I’ve yet to try a service that can provide the sort of reliability you would expect from Vonage ported over to mobile.
“With JAJAH, consumers would only need a Wi-Fi connection, no SIM card or contract. JAJAH’s IP communications platform gives its partners everything they need to launch the service immediately. That includes the application itself and the entire suite of management services from termination of calls, quality control, billing and processing of payments in 200 countries around the world.”
Personally, I’m an iPhone user so I don’t have much of a need for this, but I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve tried it.
