Fring Debuts iPhone Video Calls

Voice calls are so 2009. Yesterday, Fring gave us a little taste of the future of mobile calls with the introduction of video calls on the iPhone for Skype users. Little caveat: the product is only available for iPhone/iPod Touch users with OS 3.0 and only selected Nokia Symbian S60 devices.

In the official press release, CEO Avi Shechter said:

“Leveraging excellent video capabilities on the iPhone and iPod touch together with our open internet and social environment, we’re bringing together families and friends these holidays, wherever they are. We were the first to bring mobile voice over internet (VoIP) to mobile devices, the first to bring iPhone/ iPod touch users the choice to make free Internet calls, the first to enable cost-saving mobile twitter over internet, and now we’re proud to continue leading the field of rich mobile-internet communication by bringing users the world’s first fring video calls over internet for the iPhone and iPod touch.”

Fring posted a short clip on YouTube to demo the product:

The parent company of Fring, Fringland, Ltd. offers telephony solutions including a mobile voice over Internet protocol application that allows users to make free calls and live chat over cellular data networks or a Wi-Fi connection. Formerly known as OneFone, the company was founded in 2005 and is based in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
