VoIP provider Coms plc has inked a deal with retailer John Lewis through which Coms' products and services are to be displayed.
John Lewis is providing retail space to promote and demonstrate the Coms products and services as a trial in stores including Chelsea, Kingston, Nottingham, Newcastle and Peterborough. Coms is providing training at each store and the products will have branded display and point-of-sale materials.
The Coms Wi-Fi Mobile combines GSM with VoIP. Coms is supplying the Pirelli DP-L10 combined GSM/Wi-Fi VoIP phone. The retail price is £164, with a Coms usage contract.
'This gives the Coms brand high visibility in premier retail stores', said CEO Terry Martin. 'And its trained, knowledgeable staff will give consumers the confidence to migrate to an Internet Telephony service.'
