VoX Communications chalks out Android internet calling app strategy

VoX Communications, a provider of wholesale Voice over
Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services and smartphone applications, has
developed a mobile VoIP App for use on all Android mobile phones.

VoX plans to add video calling to this product by the end
of the year and enable video calling between an Android phone and an Ojo Vision
video phone. As a nimble development technology company, it intends to produce
a tablet video app that brings a product superior to Facetime to the Android

“We are very excited about being able to deliver a
mobile VoIP app via Google’s incredibly popular Android Market. We believe that
this venue will give our VoIP services unprecedented exposure, as this App will
be available to over 50 million Android smart phones in the U.S. alone,” said
Mark Richards, chief information officer, Pervasip.

Until recently, VoX had relied on other companies, fring
and Nimbuzz, to deliver its mobile VoIP application to an Android device.
 Now, a consumer can install a VoX app directly on an Android tablet or
smart phone in an easy download. VoX is working to automate this download so
that it can be purchased anywhere in the world from mobile VoIP app websites.

The application contains several features that give VoX
an advantage over other apps, such as Skype. For instance, VoX becomes
available in the phone’s primary dialer with a single touch and you do not have
to sign in every time, as the Skype App makes you do.

With VoX app users can also set it to automatically
register with VoX when Wi-Fi is turned on, or keep it registered for 3G, 4G and
Wi-Fi.  It can also be set up to register when a call is made, or all the
time, for people that want to maximize battery life and not keep apps running.

A VoX subscriber can subscribe entirely on the phone and
choose a U.S. number without leaving the interface, which makes the sign up
process more elegant than many competitors.

The mobile VoIP plans start at $4.95, which is a low cost
of entry for a high quality and reliable VoIP service offering. VoX also offers
500 minutes for $9.95, which is less expensive than Skype, and $29.95 for
unlimited calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

“With ability to update plans we intend to be
creative with target audiences that are looking for fixed blocks of calls for a
fixed amount rather than a monthly fee that people don’t always use. This
new interface enables us to tailor the plans offered so that we could even
offer a $1 plan that only depletes a consumer’s cash balance when calls are
made. We intend to offer similar creative calling plans to those offered
recently by Vonage and also intend to offer them at competitive prices,”
added Richards.
