Apply iPhone that launched in USA on June 29, 2007,6pm was reported to have sold up to 700,000 units so far. That is definitely a respectable figure. Most buyer chose the 8GB model that went for USD 599.00. It will be quite a while before it reach Malaysian shore. Nevertheless, even if iPhone is in Malaysian market, whether we will have a chance to use it will depend who Apple will choose in Malaysia as her Telco partner. If Apple choose to work with Maxis, 019 user like me who is not willing to change mobile phone number is not likely to get one.
Skype on Thursday announced that it will sell Wi-Fi phones embedded with Skype Internet calling software to allow people to make calls over the Internet without being tethered to their PCs. Here, the Wi-Fi phone from Edgecore.
The new Wi-Fi Phone will surely increase Skype Usage beyond desktop.
I have been trying out VOIP Stunt via PC and it works great. VOIP Stunt currently offer unlimited call the land lines in Malaysia, UK, USA and Australia and to enjoy the free call and low call rates to many countries, I have purchased and installed a Linksys ATA Adaptor and configure it to work with VOIP Stunt.
The Linksys ATA offer two lines and each line can configure to work with one VOIP Stunt Account and by connecting these two lines to the keyphone system in the office, fellow office workers will be able to call using them and hence enjoy substantial saving especially on calls to other cities in Malaysia.
We have so far tested with two lines with one streamyx connection account and the quality is extremely good.
Not to forget that to enjoy those free calls, there is a need to make a payment of 10 Euro per VOIP Stunt account that will last you up to four months if you do not make calls to places that VOIP Stunt charge minimal fee.
As the title suggest, VOIP Stunt offer free unlimited call to all fixed line in Malaysia as long as you purchase a credit of 10 Euro that will expire in 120 days if you do not use it. You can of course use that credit to call any mobile number in Malaysia at 0.04 Euro or RM 0.18 per minute.
Tested the call to fixed line and found that the quality is good and clear, comparable to that of Skype.
