    Vyke launches mobile VoIP for BlackBerry RIM devices


    Vyke Communications has announced that it has released a beta version of its Mobile VoIP software and service for Blackberry devices using RIM software, which is available through Vyke's enterprise sales channels.

    With the addition of this Blackberry software, Vyke now offers its Mobile VoIP solution on the three most used mobile operating systems in the enterprise market namely Symbian, Windows Mobile and RIM. However, Vyke's Blackberry solution is claimed to be unique as it uses a variation of VoIP which enables users to make VoIP calls over the Vyke network at any time their phone has GSM coverage, not only when the phone is in range of Wi-Fi or 3G mobile data coverage. The software supports most Blackberry devices dating back as far as 2003.

    Aaron Powers, Head of Business Development at Vyke, commented: "Having only announced in November our Mobile VoIP software and services for Windows Mobile, we are extremely pleased to be moving so aggressively into the enterprise market sector with the addition of support for RIM devices. With Blackberry's extensive penetration into the enterprise sector, incorporating Vyke's services into its RIM devices means we reach an even wider audience, so a greater number of users can benefit from significantly discounted calls. This is another milestone for Vyke's Mobile VoIP offering."
