    fring releases ‘world’s first’ free mobile VoIP calls on Android phones


    fring, a mobile application that lets users communicate and share web-based content from their mobile devices, today announced the world's first full voice over internet support on all Android devices.

    From today, Android users join 'fringsters' worldwide with free calls, live chat, contact availability status, file sharing and more with friends on fring and several popular social services including Skype, MSN, GoogleTalk, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo! and AIM. Centralized from one integrated contact list, fringsters also make calls to regular phone lines via Skype-Out and hundreds of popular SIP services over 3G, GPRS or Wi-Fi internet connection.

    Avi Shechter, Co-Founder & CEO of fring said, "fring is glad to bring Android users the first free voice calls over fring, Skype, GoogleTalk and SIP, realizing the real potential of their new open, internet-enabled devices." Shechter continued, "Now Android users can join the millions of fringsters on thousands of fring-supported mobile devices who enjoy the rich features and cost benefits that mobile communication over internet can provide: communicating and sharing social Internet experiences over Wi-Fi or data plan with their friends wherever they are, on the web or on their phones."

    In addition to Android, fring is said to be supported worldwide on many Symbian S60, iPhone, iPod touch, Windows Mobile, J2ME and Linux devices.
