Packet8 MobileTalk

Having seen invention after invention and new technology after new technology come along I can say I have begun to appreciate some of the more simple things in life. Don’t get me wrong, I like complex technologies such as the iPhone allowing one to surf the web in a fashion which comes close to a laptop browsing experience.
But I realize that some technologies are too complicated for mass adoption and as such I appreciate simple solutions like Skype which anyone can use.
Having said this, when I found out Packet8 has developed a new solution named MobileTalk which allows long distance VoIP calls to be made by mobile phones I could not help but be excited. Why? Well because I am very much aware of how difficult it is to call international numbers with a calling card.
I spend a good deal of time in the car and it is a nightmare to dial long international numbers including calling card while driving. I subsequently don’t make as many international calls as I normally would because of the pain associated with dialing.
And yes, of course I know I can program the long sequences into my phone and yes, I know how to program. I just choose not to.
So I am very happy to hear Packet8 has developed a solution which downloads an application to smartphones and automatically connects the call via their network. They save you money and save you from having to dial a calling card number followed by a long international number. In the end; these are the exact things many of us need in a mobile long-distance solution.

    Packet8 MobileTalk could be done much better
    When Packet8 presented MobileTalk I was fascinated, but just for some seconds. Then I thought: What a lost opportunity! It could have been such a great application, if it 1.) hadn’t such an expensive basic fee, 2.) wasn’t bound to one particular VoIP provider and 3.) didn’t work only in the US. READ MORE…
