Comwave recently introduced a new version of ePhone for Android. The new release is a part of Comwave Apps, designed to capture the customer-base of Skype (News - Alert).
The new ePhone App is different from other apps as it comes with a free telephone number which can be selected by the users for receiving incoming calls from any telephone worldwide.
Comwave is Canada's largest independent communications company and a premier provider of VoIP Home Phone lines and Hosted PBX (News - Alert) solutions.
"Having a Toronto or New York phone number on your Smartphone is powerful especially when you travel and want to get around those costly roaming fees,” said Yuval Barzakay, president of Comwave. “While other Apps seem to put up walled gardens confining you to the App, ePhone allows you to communicate for free to non ePhone users as well. Now, someone can be in New York with their traditional cell phone and call an Android (News - Alert) ePhone user across the globe in India and allow another computer ePhone user to join in."
The new ePhone app delivers tremendous cost savings for users, as it comes in two options – ePhone FREE and ePhone Global $30. Users opting for the FREE version get their own free phone number which can be used to make or receive calls from anywhere within Canada and the U.S., at no extra charge.
The $30 per year plan, along with everything else offered in the FREE version, allows users to make free calls to more than 60 countries.
Skype users, however, are charged for every call they make.
With ePhone, smartphone users, as well as computers and landline phone users, can communicate for free even if they don't have an ePhone. The ePhone is now available for Android, Mac, PC and Blackberry Playbook.
