Mobile communication in 2010 and beyond!

Cut trough

Here is something to think about: How do you define mobile communication in 2010 and where should it go form here?

Is it calling, text messaging, leaving a post on a wall, sharing or viewing some pictures or … maybe  a little bit of everything?

There is a lot of noise around mobile VoIP and openness, meaning the ability to make internet calls on the mobile and the fact that there are many solutions in this space, some of which are not compatible with each other.  Following is our take on the situation and where we see ourselves in creating the future of mobile VoIP and next generation mobile communications.

Let’s start with the basics!

What is Mobile VOIP and where is it going?

It all started on the PC when people could make calls over the Internet (VoIP). Today, because of mobile Internet accessibility, people can make calls over the Internet from their mobile phones (mobile VoIP), instead of via your mobile operator’s network.

To Nimbuzz, Mobile VOIP is just a piece of the puzzle, which makes up the future of mobile communications. The future of mobile communications is a unified communications platform that gives users the freedom to have free and mobile calls, IM and all your friends as well as social networks in one place. And that means from any provider, anywhere in the world. This puts, YOU in charge of how you connect and communicate.

Openness, choice and creating next generation mobile communications

We believe that Mobile VoIP is the start of something much bigger in mobile communications – and openness and choice are key components of this. Nimbuzz sees mobile VoIP as an entry vehicle to create the next generation of mobile communications. Delivering a unified communications solution to the mass market through the convergence of all the ways that users communicate today – chat/IM, social and online communities, mobile voice and SMS/text – for free.

We currently see companies battling for market share around features, but the future of mobile VOIP is not about SDKs, unlimited data plans, video or other individual features. It’s about building Value Added Services (VAS) around the user’s contacts or address book. Mobile VoIP is a true VAS. Nimbuzz believes in a global mobile community across all platforms, communities, devices and operators that gives users the ability to choose how they communicate. Calls will be free. Revenue will be generated from enriched mobile communications for all industry players, including users and operators. Simply put, it will become as ubiquitous as talking face-to-face at the same cost, free.

As a pioneer in mobile VoIP, this is our take.  Our contributions to the mobile (VoIP) industry are being enjoyed by

  • 23 million Nimbuzz users worldwide
  • 55,000 new Nimbuzz user per day
  • Nimbuzz users making 500 million VoIP calls per year
  • people from 220 countries in the world
  • users on the most popular operating systems: iOS (iPhone/iPod touch/iPad), Android, Symbian, J2ME (Java), Blackberry, PC and Mac, as well as inside your internet browser.
  • our operator partners: Google/Gizmo5, Vyke, DoCoMo, Virgin Mobile, Telkomsel, Aircel, IPS, GulfSIP, Sipgate, ActionVoIP, TPad, Spikom, Mweb, Voipax, Xeloq and more.

What’s your take on the situation?

  5. Hi,
    I am disappointed that Nimbuzz cannot operate on the Nokia N900 which was meant to be a high end computer/mobile gadget. And to make it worse Nimbuzz is affiliated to Nokia. What is the Tech Dept at Nokia/Nimbuzz up to. More apps(that work) are needed on the N900

    Your device is using a Java version of Nimbuzz which does not include the calling feature, so receiving or making calls via Nimbuzz won’t be possible with your device.
