Mobile VoIP looking good for ’07 – Nokia, Skype
January 1st, 2007

Nokia has been working on “The Gizmo Project“. The Gizmo project allows VoIP calls on the N80i phone (Internet edition) using SIP protocol – enabling two or more people to make phone calls to each other, using the Internet to carry the call.

Skype has also been working on mobile VOIP using 3′s X-Series in the UK; Skype came bundled with the Nokia N73 so users of that phone can Skype with each other.

The main difference is that with the Nokia N80i (Internet edition) and Gizmo – Nokia’s Gizmo has more coverage than Skype’s mobile VoIP solution.

Ash

can you say more about this speaQ…. can it be installed on the N80i?

daka, Ash said it all: Windows and Linux based mobile devices. Nokia N Series, (N80 included) runs Symbian. So no. Also following the link Ash provided clarifies this further.
