Skype-KDDI-Au (Japan): VOIP Free Calls

Skype, the VOIP world leader had announced their strategic alliance with KDDI Corporation of Japan, after its successful partnership with VERIZON wireless in USA, and operator 3 in UK,

This simply means that KDDI of Japan (Nippon) will soon start rolling out of the Skype's IP telephony software across its KDDI services; KDDI would start Skype integration to its mobile network first-au,

au customers would be able to take the advantage of unlimited free worldwide Skype to Skype (audio / video) calls, group chats, global conference calls from their au mobiles, the calls will be entirely free as it would route via VOIP or internet hence it would not cost them a dime and will NOT be counted against their monthly minutes allowance,

Also the KDDI customers would have the choice now to make the cheap or low cost international Skype calling right from their mobiles on go, they also could do IM on cheap Skype rates or subscription ... this all works like Skype's unique mobile outgoing service on-go, known as SKYPEOUT!

This beautiful KDDI - Skype VOIP integration would benefit lots of Japanese people, who always love to be mobile and generally clad with cool smart mobile handsets,

The Skype app for the au mobiles, would be 'ALWAYS ON' (and run in the background like many other VOIPs) thus au customers would be able to watch their Skype contacts list that they are online or offline, and could connect to receive the Skype calls when their Skype contacts come online : )

From November 2010 onwards, Skype, the VOIP would be start rolling out on KDDI's Android™ smart phone au 1SO1 / ISO3 than later it would come to many au Android devices too and also on BREW devices as the year 2011 will be coming,

For the Japan people on KDDI au network, you can pre-register on au ISO3 ... Japan is now all set to see the revolutionizing Skype - KDDI communication alliance which would benefit them a lot,

FYI:

The internet data charges will apply to you only while initiating or receiving a Skype call but it would come to an end when the voice call establishes,

FaceTime: Free WIFI Group Video Call Conferencing?

FaceTime: Group Video Call Con-Free (WIFI)?

FaceTime is the native video calling one tap app from Apple Inc. which comes pre-embedded (pre-installed) on its Apple iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G,

FaceTime is really cool to make free and unlimited, seamless, streaming, live, real-time, one-to-one video calls over WI-FI , but could we make a group video-voice chat with 2 or 3 or more persons simultaneously (like Skype-FaceBook video call conference with up to 10 persons around the world)?

Yes, it seems quiet possible, may be Apple would have this video call conference over Face-Time in the future, already in their mind thus one could try a little tweaking (BUT DO AT YOUR OWN RISK PLEASE, we could not confirm the results) ...

There is a Face time preference file in the settings, which is located at:

/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/IMCore.framework/imagent.app/PlugIns/FaceTime.imservice/ServiceProperties.plist

This has a value as:


AllowsMultipleConnections
false/

If these settings value could be changed to

true/

instead of


false/


, (it’s a herculean & challenging task though), than MAY BE, one can use a multi-party / group video call conference over FaceTime with other Apple FaceTime users in the world?! (We are not sure though, and we do not recommend this, one may even loose Apple's warranty, so do at your own risk?!),

But what we think, that the screen of iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G is too tiny to manage a group (multi-user) video call con. (national or overseas / free), thus this group video call conference would be hold good only on new iPad when it comes with FACETIME function with dual camera : )

Apple FaceTime: some cool facts:

FaceTime free unlimited WIFI video calls over iPhone4; iPod Touch 4th generation could be made internationally (from anywhere to anywhere),

DoCoMo-Tata-3G-GSM Ushers India

Tata-Docomo world class 3G Life ...

After State owned BSNL / MTNL's third generation mobile signals (3G), Tata - Docomo would be the very first private telecom operator to launch its fast 3G - GSM data cellular services in India, which is all set to be launched this Diwali festival 2010, Nov 5th, in nine telecom circles, Viz.: Gujarat, Kerala, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh (West), Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh circles to start with,

Tata-Docomo's mobile 3G internet USB modem dongle / device, live streaming mobile TV, real time live video calling, HD gaming, mobile and PC videoconferencing, other 3G VAS services are just on their way, stay tuned ... later Tata-Docomo will introduce a complete bouquet of its 3G (Nokia-Siemens network) revolutionary services as NTT-DOCOMO has in Japan like: i-modeTM and the other location based services, mobile payment etc,

FYI:

NTT-DOCOMO Japan has been credited to introduce the pre-commercial 3G network for the very first time to this world in 2001 (on the technology called: W-CDMA-GA3Y), and NTT-DOCOMO is on the way to the mobile future technologies: 4G / post-4G / 4.5G / LTE / WI-MAX etc. now ...

Bharati Airtel, Vodafone Essar, Reliance Communication have still no date to launch their 3G, after the long speculation game of 3G spectrum broadband in India,

Tata is an Indian brand who had joined Japan's NTT-DOCOMO to become TATA-DOCOMO, they already are providing 2G cell signals and is a cool reliable brand from the House of Tata's: a renowned Indian big industrial group!

Ratan Tata (of Tata group's) motto is “Moment of triumph for the Indian consumer”, and they are rightly fulfilling this : )

Yahoo IM-11-Tele-Presence: Free Video Calls to Android, iPhone, PC from Mobile

Yahoo: Tele Presence / Face-to-Face or Eye-to-Eye video call contact

The Reuters report that Yahoo Inc. is soon going to have its own mobile phone video calling like Apple’s FaceTime,

Yahoo is all set (Yahoo Messenger 11) to enter and preparing / finalizing its tele-presence free video calls app / software (over WIFI / 3G / 4G networks to other Yahoo users around the world) for its popular Yahoo Messenger (mobile) instant messaging service, to make us enable to make a video chat to Apple iPhones and Google Android based mobile and devices,

You know, WIFI to WIFI calls routes over internet hence are free to make anywhere, and Yahoo will use this technology too to leverage the free calls to its global users like Apple’s FaceTime is free (WIFI to WIFI),

According to the Reuters news, the T-Mobile has already announced about its latest 4G myTouch smart videophone (designed by HTC - Android powered, HSPA) that it would hit the shelves with a pre-built / embedded Yahoo video call IM app to place mobile video calling over Yahoo IM,

This could be interesting to see Yahoo too in highly demanding and most lucrative Video calling market like Skype and Apple’s Facetime or mobile software giants Fring, QIK's, TruPhone etc,

Yahoo is a big brand and internet portal having millions of registered worldwide users, its IM is very popular and if mobile video call hits over it, it could be an instant hit,

Yahoo free mobile video call app is coming for Apple iPhone and Android mobiles, it will permit these smart mobile phone users to make video calls to other such smart mobiles users and also to make the video calls from mobile to Yahoo Messenger users on their PC,

Yahoo video calling app for Android, iPhone mobile and mobile to PC video calls, will work on WIFI and 3G, 4G unlike Apple’s Facetime, which currently works only over WIFI,

Skype the VOIP King has limited video calling capability over mobile phones (unlike its pc to pc unlimited free video calls), and only few mobile phone allows this like ASUS Skype videophone, Nokia N900 Tablet (Linux - Maemo), so the market is vast, virgin and much lucrative for the revenues too,

But let Yahoo video mobile call / tele-presence come first, is it good to count the chickens before they hatch?
