Avi Shechter, Co-Founder & CEO of fring: "Leveraging excellent video capabilities on the iPhone and iPod touch together with our open internet and social environment, we're bringing together families and friends these holidays, wherever they are..." Shechter continued, "We were the first to bring mobile voice over internet (VoIP) to mobile devices, the first to bring iPhone/iPod touch users the choice to make free Internet calls, the first to enable cost-saving mobile twitter over internet, and now we're proud to continue leading the field of rich mobile-internet communication by bringing users the world's first fring video calls over internet for the iPhone and iPod touch."
The new fring version with video calls support is currently available to users with iPhone/iPod touch OS 3.0 (only incoming video-stream available, due to the location of the camera) and selected Nokia Symbian S60 devices (2-way video streaming is available). In addition, fring supports thousands of handsets on multiple platforms including Symbian S60, Android, Windows Mobile, J2ME and Linux devices.
