Barablu Wi-Fi calls
Wi-Fi technology business Barablu has been set up to provide free calls between Wi-Fi mobile phones.
Barablu said there will be around 100 Wi-Fi phones launched this year, with Nokia’s E series and N series offering the service.
Marius O’Reilly, chief marketing officer of Barablu, said: ‘Nokia has 36% of the worldwide mobile phone market and Barablu provides their owners with a fantastic opportunity to save on calls. As well as providing free calls for those with Wi-Fi enabled phones, we also have features for people and businesses looking to save money when calling mobile numbers and traditional landlines.’
Outside of Wi-Fi zones, Barablu switches between GSM and Wi-Fi.
The service is available through a free download on Barablu’s website. The software is sent to the mobile phone via SMS.
