Fring adds P2P mobile phone file sharing

fringToday, mobile VoIP startup Fring added file-swapping to its mobile application. You can send music, videos, or documents from your cell phone to other Fring users or anyone on MSN Messenger through 3G and Edge data networks as well as over WiFi.

Of course, the core of Fring is that it leverages a cell phone's data plan or WiFi connection to make free Internet calls to fellow Fringers and charges for landline and mobile line connections.
Unlike Skype which is limited to communicating on it's own network, Fring also lets you IM people on AIM, Skype, MSN, ICQ, Twitter, Google Talk, Yahoo, or any SIP network. Further, you can even send files to MSN Messenger users and vice-versa.
