Dell Canada and Fongo have teamed up to deliver a free mobile VoIP application, Dell Voice, for BlackBerry users.
The free to download Voice over IP app enables BlackBerry users to make local and long-distance calls for free and receive free calls using their existing data plans without using air-time minutes. Popular features such as Voicemail and Caller ID are included.
The announcement follows the successful launch of Dell Voice for Android and iOS smartphones in February, which boasts more than 130,000 Canadian users to date.
John Stix, CMO, Fongo notes: "Fongo's aim is to deliver savings to BlackBerry users across Canada with our launch of Dell Voice for BlackBerry. BlackBerry enjoys significant market share in Canada and we are very pleased to complete our application on the top three largest platforms."
Stix continues: "In our first 100 days on the iPhone platform, Dell Voice was downloaded to more than 4 percent of all iPhones in Canada. Knowing the importance of BlackBerry to the business community in this country, we expect adoption on it to be even stronger."
Users should note that they can choose a local Canadian phone number for their Dell Voice for BlackBerry line, as well as place emergency VoIP 911 calls.
