Vonage Launching iPhone App “Time To Call”

Vonage has just announced to launch a new calling application known as Time To Call which will compete Skype and other rivals.

Time to Call is an iPhone Application which allows users to call any number in around 100 countries for the duration of 15 minutes, just for a dollar or two. While for other 90 countries, under 10 dollars are charged for 15 minutes.

The money for every call is deducted from a user’s iTunes account as an in-app purchase.

Remote Ringer Helps You Find Your Misplaced Phone

By providing a vast number of useful applications, developers are keen to add more and more useful applications to the up-growing portfolio of the Android platform.

What do you do in the unfortunate event of misplacing your phone? If you are in a habit of placing your phone somewhere and then forgetting about it, then we have an app for you. For some of you, most of the time, your phone is on silent mode and hence it becomes rather annoying when you find yourself helpless with the phone ringer.

Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.

Caller ID On T-Mobile, $50 Per Year??

Okay, so I have to admit Caller ID is cool for a number of reasons. I think first and foremost, caller ID is the perfect tool to figure out whether you should take a call or not (especially if you are in a meeting or on the road).

Secondly, as a human being, I think the majority of us prefer to avoid surprises whenever necessary. If you need an example just think about Christmas when you were a kid and how you wanted to sneak out to the living room at 4AM to check the presents under the tree.

New Bluetooth Ear Set Doubles As Stealthcam

Looxcie has just updated its Bluetooth ear set that doubles as a camcorder and a storage device. The unit weighs in at just 22 grams and stores video as MP4 files. Of course, with a stealth cam, you could capture a lot of video without raising any unwarranted attention. Hopefully people do not use it for the wrong reasons, but I guess that risk runs with any new technology now a days.

Before you laugh at the idea of this tiny unit being a video camera, note that the two models available offer either 5 or 10 hours of video storage, respectively.

Skype’s Recent Sign-in Problems

Skype is having problems once again. The voice-calling company had another outage, affecting consumers globally. Although Skype has had bigger problems before, the issue that stands is that many users had problems of signing in and making calls. Although this may not be a big deal for your average consumer, this is a huge deal for business users.

There were also reports of the Skype app crashing but apparently is not related to issues with Windows or Mac.

AT&T Offers “Cell Tower In A Suitcase”

AT&T is now selling small, portable cellular antennas that allow corporations and government customers to provide their own wireless coverage in remote or disaster-struck areas. Instead of relying on cellphone companies to restore services after natural disasters, police and emergency personnel would instead be able to reset the mobile towers, prioritizing areas that need help the most.

The portable cell tower will be packed in a briefcase with a separate satellite dish needed.

Aircell Announces New Android Airphone

Aircell, an in-flight communications provider, will be releasing an in-cabin, Android-based handset in late 2011. The airphone will target business users who like the option of staying connected. Aircell claims that their airphone will offer better sound quality than your typical land-line or land-based mobile phone. Aircell chose Android for it’s ease of use and current popularity amongst mainstream callers. Although we do not currently know the details of the airphone (e.g. processor, memory, or software), we do know that it will be powerful enough for your typical multimedia use. The phone will be equipped with a 3.8-inch touchscreen, allowing for a pleasant toy to play with during your flight. The futuristic airphone also comes with…
