The cloud-based communications, app and service provider, VoX Communications has collaborated with Nimbuzz, a free calling and messing app to produce the newly released VoIP App, VoX Mobile Out for iPhone (News - Alert). VoX is a wholly owned subsidiary of White Plains, N.Y. company, Pervasip Corp.
The company notes in a press release that the new app provides inexpensive cloud-based calling for iPhone users in the U.S.
"We are very excited in becoming the first U.S.-based premier partner to integrate our cloud-based SIP mobile calling software with Nimbuzz (News - Alert). A smooth and easy download, people appreciate having a phone line from VoX, which gives them a second phone number, a second voice mail box and low-priced VoIP calling plans that run over both the 3G and WiFi (News - Alert) data networks. We see reports of millions of App store downloads and we are pleased that we can now be a service provider on these mobile devices," said Pervasip’s Chief Information Officer, Mark Richards.
Embedded with Nimbuzz, VoX Mobile Out is expected to reach a great span of users as Nimbuzz already has 30 million users, and recently reported a record number of mobile voice minutes—3.65 billion over the past year and 150 thousand downloads of the app since its launch in May of 2008—50 percent originating from Nimbuzz.com. The company also points out that the app is among the top performing applications in the popular stores Ovi and GetJar.
Every Nimbuzz download for iPhone will now include the VoX logo as the second icon on the SIP providers’ list within the installed application. INSTAT estimates that the number of Mobile VoIP users will approach 300 million by 2013.
Nimbuzz CEO Evert Jaap Lugt said, "The addition of VoX to the Nimbuzz service offering, supports our mission to give people the freedom and power to choose how they communicate, across any device and network, wherever they are. We believe the service will be a great success given its relevance to the increasingly savvy and demanding US mobile phone market and dramatic uptake of mobile devices.”
