Michael Robertson is at it again. From the creator of MP3.com came SIPphone.com and most recently Gizmo Project. FREE TELEPHONE CALLS to 60 countries via Gizmo is here.
We all knew this was going to happen, as it has happened in the past (Dial Pad of old for example) when VoIP made it's first commercial appearance.
The closer we get to end to end IP we will see more free services like this, but Michael has delivered service over the last mile. This is historically where the telcos live, Gizmo is sure to get some attention for this move.
In some ways Michael is taking the Skype approach. By this I mean that if a user wants to access this free calling they will need to download and use Gizmo to make the call. A great way to build a user base past what they already have.
Many of us want to make calls from a cell phone but still use the Gizmo / SIPphone network. If they could find a way to do this without me having to dial toll free or local access numbers first I would use it daily.
