JAJAH Launches VoIP App for iPod Touch

Telecommunications provider JAJAH this week announced the availability of a new technology platform that will transform the millions of iPod Touch devices now roaming the world in people's pockets or purses, into fully functional mobile phones.

"The connected lifestyle is spreading," Paul Naphtali, JAJAH's vice president of global marketing told VoIPPlanet, "particularly among college students. They’ve grown up in the last five years with Facebook—they have an iPod Touch in their pocket, which they use not only for music, but for Web browsing, games, and entertainment. The iPod Touch is such a fantastic device, we thought 'Let's give them the ability to make a phone call.' "

Anyone with the latest version of the iPod touch will be able to download the software from the Apple App Store. Then, with an appropriate headset and microphone, they'll be able to make calls and send SMS messages whenever they're in connecting range of a Wi-Fi network.

Pricing levels will likely be comparable to JAJAH's existing services (the original Web-activated JAJAH, and the PC-independent JAJAH Direct)—which is to say, very, very inexpensive, possibly free.

The service will not appear under the JAJAH brand however. Rather, JAJAH's customers will be carriers and other organizations eager to tap into this market.
