ICQ 5.1 has PC-to-Phone

ICQ 5.1ICQ, an AOL-owned company, now has PC-to-Phone (PC-to-PSTN) functionality with the release of ICQ 5.1. If you recall, I ranted about how ICQ 5.0 only had half-duplex push-to-talk PC-to-PC calling. No word whether the new version has full-duplex PC-to-PC VoIP calling, however. The ICQ Phone service utilizes deltathree's iConnectHere for terminating to the PSTN and for backoffice (billing, call records) support. Yet another "me too" IM product - "We do VoIP/PSTN calling. Look at us!"
