SIPphone has released a version of Gizmo Project for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet that allows this device to make free telephone calls when connected to a Wi-Fi network.
It isn’t unusual for VoIP (voice over IP) applications like Gizmo Project to offer free calls between people running the software, but charge users to call regular telephones. However, this isn’t what SIPphone is offering. Instead, Gizmo Project users can call a regular telephone in any of 60 countries for free. All that’s necessary is the person receiving the call be a registered user of Gizmo Project.
This isn’t a promotion available for a few months, it is a permanent feature of the application.
Nokia 770 users can also use this application to call people who aren’t registered users of Gizmo Project for a penny or so a minute.
The Nokia 770 version of Gizmo Project can be downloaded for free from the SIPphone web site.
There are also versions of this application for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
