Vopium Launches Mobile VoIP Application on BlackBerry App World

Vopium has launched a free mobile VoIP application available on BlackBerry App World. A carrier-grade mobile telephony service, Vopium offers affordable and reliable international calls from any mobile handset.

Vopium is a free software program installed on a mobile phone. It helps friends, families and businesses to communicate, regardless of where they are in the world. According to Tanveer Sharif, the CEO of Vopium, Vopium provides the same high level of call quality available from mobile operators. Vopium on BlackBerry App World will enable BlackBerry users to cut their international call costs.

The Vopium technology utilizes 3G, GSM, WiFi and GPRS networks. By automatically re-routing calls via the cheapest available route, Vopium ensures that customers are always able to save money when calling international numbers. The Vopium application on BlackBerry App World will seamlessly integrate with the address book. It will recognize international numbers and automatically re-route calls without any input from the user. When a user dials an international number, the call will be made using the cheapest method available while maintaining the highest level of call quality.

Vopium is compatible with more than 500 devices across all operating systems including Windows Mobile, Symbian and Java. When a user downloads and registers Vopium from BlackBerry’s App World, he will receive 30 minutes of free calls and 30 text messages (SMS).

International calls will be re-routed as a local call to a Vopium gateway by the Vopium application. After this, it will be routed through global traffic carriers as ordinary voice traffic to ensure voice quality. The Vopium application will provide 90 percent savings while making international calls and sending SMS. Wi-Fi users of Vopium can call each other around the world for free.

The Vopium application allows a user to keep his own mobile number and SIM card. The application will maintain a numeric identity while making calls. When a user calls from his home country, the operator will apply a local rate and when a call is made from abroad a roaming charge will be applied.
