Looks like Wengo beat Adobe to the punch in offering a Flash VoIP client. If you recall, both Om and I discussed
how Adobe was planning on offering a Flash VoIP client.
Check out the news courtesy of Slashdot:
"Wengo, a French company specializing in VoIP and instant messaging, and patron of the OpenWengo
project (previously featured in Free Software magazine
and here on Slashdot
), has just released WengoVisio
— a Flash softphone that you can download and embed in your Web page, to allow readers to call you when you're available through their browser, without downloading any software. (Disclaimer: I work for Wengo, on the OpenWengo project.) It's functionally cut down from the full Wengophone
, but it's enough to be able to make a phone call in a Web page for the first time."
