VoX Communications to Distribute Android Internet Calling App to the Google Android Market
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pervasip Corp. (OTCQB:PVSP) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, VoX Communications, a leading provider of wholesale Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services and smartphone applications, has developed a mobile VoIP App for use on all Android mobile phones.
Pervasip's Chief Information Officer, Mark Richards, noted, "We are very excited about being able to deliver a mobile VoIP app via Google's incredibly popular Android Market. We believe that this venue will give our VoIP services unprecedented exposure, as this App will be available to over 50 million Android smart phones in the U.S. alone."
Until recently, VoX had relied on other companies, fring and Nimbuzz, to deliver its mobile VoIP application to an Android device. Now, a consumer can install a VoX app directly on an Android tablet or smart phone in an easy download. VoX is working to automate this download so that it can be purchased anywhere in the world from mobile VoIP app websites.
Richards continued, "The application is very sophisticated and contains several features that gives us an advantage over other apps, such as Skype. For instance, VoX becomes available in the phone's primary dialer with a single touch and you do not have to sign in every time, as the Skype App makes you do. With our app you can also set it to automatically register with VoX when Wi-Fi is turned on, or keep it registered for 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. It can also be set up to only register when a call is made, or all the time, for people that want to maximize battery life and not keep apps running. We believe we can add video calling to this product by the end of the year and enable video calling between an Android phone and an Ojo Vision video phone. As a nimble development technology company, we intend to produce a tablet video app that brings a product superior to Facetime to the Android Market."
A VoX subscriber can subscribe entirely on the phone and choose a U.S. number without leaving the interface, which makes the sign up process more elegant than many competitors. The mobile VoIP plans start at $4.95, which is a low cost of entry for a high quality and reliable VoIP service offering. VoX also offers 500 minutes for $9.95, which is less expensive than Skype, and $29.95 for unlimited calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
"With ability to update plans we intend to be creative with target audiences that are looking for fixed blocks of calls for a fixed amount rather than a monthly fee that people don't always use. This new interface enables us to tailor the plans offered so that we could even offer a $1 plan that only depletes a consumer's cash balance when calls are made. We intend to offer similar creative calling plans to those offered recently by Vonage and also intend to offer them at competitive prices," added Richards.
The company expects to release the app to the Android Market within 30 days.
