Skype Users Get Mobile
AMSTERDAM -- Vendex International Ltd. announced the launch of its free software, EpyxMobile, on July 11, 2005 which for the first time enables people to make free calls from their mobile phones to users of Skype, the hugely successful Internet telephony network.
Using a standard Bluetooth connection, the software, which takes minutes to download and install, bridges the gap between free VoIP and standard GSM mobile networks, taking mobile communications into new and uncharted territory.
“Skype users are not satisfied with sitting at their computers and, in this rapidly developing globalised world, there’s a growing demand for low cost mobile calls across international borders,” explains Michael Patrick Dwen, CEO EpyxMobile. “Our software does exactly that; free or low cost calls from your mobile phone to people all over the world.”
“Furthermore, the software is compatible with SkypeOut, which means that the 1.2 million SkypeOut users will now be able to make their calls from their mobile instead of their PC and continue to benefit from low cost rates.”
