Today Vonage announced a new mobile application for the iPhone and BlackBerry platforms. The application, which itself is free, will provide low-cost calling to international numbers via either Wi-Fi or cellular networks. According to Vonage, the app charges lower rates for international calls than competitors do, it works with the built-in contacts application with no extra steps required, and works with users' existing cell phone numbers, so people will know who is calling. Vonage said that it will integrate this new application with Vonage World by the end of 2009. Vonage World offers flat-rate calling to 60 countries. Vonage Mobile will be available later today.

Explains why googles app didn't make the cut.

Vonage is overall a better VoIP app then google's proposed app.
HA. HA. HA. Dream On.

Even Better

If it worked in other countries. No need to put in a new sim card or use your own at the higher rates (I am on the ATT network).

I wonder....

I wonder what the charges will be, no doubt carriers will try to block this service, cant see why they would allow it...unless the app wasn't free or they got a kick back.
