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,

About KDDI:

KDDI Corporation of Japan (Nippon) is the second largest cell phone / fixed line telecom communication operator and the provider for the Internet communications software,

KDDI also assists in realizing FMBC (Fixed Mobile and Broadcasting Convergence), for their business clients: Japan's KDDI provides for the services in ICT (Information and Communication Technology), from FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) networks to the data centres, KDDI works for the application, security strategies for its customers,

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?

What Is Telemedicine? HD-Video Conferencing

Telemedicine; HD Video Conferencing
Telemedicine; HD Video Conferencing
This is a guest post written by: Arron Brown, exclusively for Talkfree7 VOIP Blog, he works on behalf of a company called Lifesize as an editor/writer, Lifesize specialise in HD video conferencing equipment and have recently joined up with Logitech,



Arron Brown has been writing articles relating to the advantages of video conferencing and telepresence, and how they can affect productivity between B2B communications,


Telemedicine in HD (High Definition) Face-to-Face Video Conferencing:


Telemedicine is the capability of interactive healthcare by utilising up to date technology and telecommunications. In essence, Telemedicine allows patients to call their doctors live over video for instant care or grab video/still images. Patient data is stored and transmitted to physicians for diagnosis with treatment at a later time. Whether you live in the centre of New York or deep in the jungles of the Amazon, telemedicine is a priceless tool in providing healthcare today.

Today the majority of people are concerned about the cost of medicine. You can’t pick up a newspaper without reading about it. Large corporations have already figured out that video conferencing can significantly reduce their travel budget, while at the same time have no impact on their business by not travelling. Hospitals, doctors, and rural health clinics in particular are all beginning to take advantage of this technology. Not only does it provide a service at significant cost savings, but it can save lives with the long distance consults performed and completed by telemedicine.

You are sick and just got back from the doctor in your little town out in the middle of nowhere. She said you needed to see a specialist that is over 500 miles away. The cost is prohibitive but advances in technology will help you get there without breaking the bank. Video conferencing is a now available to everyone who owns a PC and has connection to the World Wide Web. Telemedicine allows you to visit your doctor without leaving your home. He can examine you, see you, all by using a standard webcam attached your PC. Imagine just turning on your PC and being able to utilise a video conferencing service to connect to your specialist. Not only have you saved money, but you have saved a vast amount of potential time from travelling.

Some hospitals have recognized the cost savings of video conferencing. They use this technology to consult with other doctors, hospitals or even teaching facilities. People regularly require emergency rooms day and night. Many patients often become frustrated at the speed of doctor/nurse care, with the use of telemedicine the nurse/doctor could readily examine the CAT scan and report this back to ER. This department provides the correct medical treatment which can in turn save lives.

Telemedicine can be used when in cooperation when health providers are not accessible or need to be available at the same time. The attending physician can dictate the patient's history, and send pictures, video, and radiology images, etc to the consulting specialist for diagnosis and consultation. At the Specialist convenience, she can follow up with his/her diagnosis and treatment plan. On many occasions the Specialist will want to talk to the attending Doctor and patient. Using video conferencing, this can take place saving both the doctors and the patient time and money.

Video conferencing is a powerful tool to use in providing healthcare. The advantages of using telemedicine to communicate and provide treatment over long distance save time, and money, this can in turn save lives by increasing the quality of healthcare. Even in large cities, telemedicine is practical as well. Even off-site radiology centres’ can offer the patient the x-rays, scans, etc and then transmit them across town to the hospital to be read by the Radiologist without having to have the Radiologist on site. It is an effective use of the doctor’s time. The expanded use of video conferencing will reduce the cost of healthcare in the long run ...

Skype VOIP for Google Android Mobile: 3G / WIFI


Skype the international VOIP service’s download is now released and ready (27 MB needed on handset) and all set for the Google Android 2.1 and 2.2 (Froyo) operating system mobile handsets and devices to make Skype to Skype free unlimited calls over 3G or WIFI and cheap Skype calls to the world using Skype to Non-Skype,

You can download Skype from Android Market to your cell phone,

Android users were wafting from a long for Skype – Android version which is now ready and available for a download, its works over a 3G cellular networks (EDGE, EV-DO, UMTS, HSDPA), and also via WIFI hotspots,

Remember Skype VOIP is free and unlimited calls could be placed over WIFI, but over 3G connection it may use your minutes / data plan and eat significant money, so better opt for an unlimited data plan, before you are ready to go,

Currently Skype may run only on Samsung Android mobiles, and not on all (may be) of the brands but Skype is doing home work to make it compatible with other brands who supports Android mobile OS, also currently this app is NOT available in Japan and China,

... Skype for Android will work ONLY on WIFI in / from USA, and from / in other countries it will work on both 3G and WIFI networks, no reason is stated for this, but perhaps Verizon - Skype relationship may be the good possible cause?

Current Verizon users:

You can opt for Android mobile phone from Verizon Wireless, Just need a supported Verizon Wireless Android phone > download Skype mobile™ for free via skype.com/m > or go directly > Android Market > search for “Skype mobile” >

FYI:

When you have the Skype mobile™ for Verizon; you can made Skype-to-Skype calls / IMs / sms also over 3G which will NOT be counted against your cellular minutes…

Plane Finder - ADS-B - AR - Real Time- iPhone / Android Radar App: A Security Threat?

Plane Finder - ADS-B - AR - Real Time- iPhone / Android Radar App
Plane Finder - ADS-B - AR - Real Time- iPhone / Android Radar App
Google's Android Market and Apple iTunes Store holds a $2.99 app (developed by British company: Pinkfroot limited) which is now RED - flagged by the US security agencies as it could pose a potential threat to the human and international aviation / flights security!

The Plane Finder ‘virtually real time tracking’ (it lags behind only 30 seconds) app behaves like a mini radar on the big-small screens of any individual's Android mobile / Apple iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (iOS 4) and any body can use it to track any flight details, including its height in the sky, flight number, aircraft registration, its speed, altitude and how far away it is etc, etc,

This flight finder in the sky, aviation / navigational app works on Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcasts (ADS-B) which is an air traffic control technology which is transmitted by generally all of the passenger aircrafts to a rather new satellite tracking system, which in many nations, either supplements or, replaces radar system, its a mini virtual radar system in a layman's hand : )

This virtual radar app works on the principal of AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) or Google Goggles, so just load this app on Android mobile / iPhone, point its camera towards an airplane in the sky and it will bring amazingly precise & pin-point details all of the flight details on your iPhone / Android screen including, its height, altitude, flight number, speed, airlines name, departure point etc,

The question is why any individual need to know all the flight details, to ploy with human security is not a fun! Aviation details should be rather secret for the security reasons, It could be fatal, if the use of this flight finder app comes into the ‘wrong hand’s, so Android and Apple perhaps should need a review of its Android Market / Apple iTunes store apps, that they may not harm or seriously compromise the human security …

Android to iPhone 4 Video-Call on 3G / 4G / WiFi: UAE, KSA, Qatar, Egypt, Middle East Use this Solution

Android to iPhone 4 Video-Call on 3G / 4G / WiFi
Android to iPhone 4 Video-Call on 3G / 4G / WiFi
Android (Motorola Droid X, HTC EVO, HTC Incredible, and Google Nexus One etc) and Apple iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 Video-Call via 3G / 4G / Wi-Fi: Good for UAE, Middle East, Qatar, Egypt, KSA etc.

Apple recently had launched its iPhone 4 in the Gulf and middle Eastern countries of UAE, Qatar, and also in Egypt, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia etc, but reports reveals that this has come with NON-FaceTime video calling over iPhone 4, or may be local carriers in UAE etc like DU / Etisalat might have blocked the Apple's free WIFI free video calls: FaceTime,

Reports also reveals that when somebody tries to upgrade his brand new Apple iPhone 4 (iOS 4.02) in such nations by latest version of iOS 4.2, he may lost the FaceTime video calling functionality, otherwise it runs ok, also the iPhone brought into the UAE from USA etc still are perfect to make free WIFI video FACETIME calls anywhere, local or overseas,

Anyways, there is a solution for the guys who have lost the iPhone 4 Facetime video calls either of any reasons, or for the guys who lack a WIFI hotspot but still need video calling over 3G or 4G cellular networks, Apple iTunes Store has a few apps which supports mobile video calls over 3G and WIFI both, may be not so good, one tap and simple like the native app from Apple i.e. Facetime,

TANGO (Palo Alto, California, USA based) video calls is a free third party app for Android cell phones and also for iPhone 4, its available in Android Market and in Apple iTunes store, which runs over WIFI and 3G, 4G all and could be downloaded for free to your latest iPhone 4, or Android mobile, than you can use it to make video chatting / calling,

The another great feature of Tango video calling app is that it works in-between two iPhones and also iPhone to any other mobile (Android based) which has the video calling functionality, though Apple FaceTime works only in-between two iPhone 4 or in-between an iPhone 4 and iTouch 4g,

But Facetime WIFI to WIFI is always free, even globally, as a thumb rule: WIFI to WIFI calls are free as they are transmitted using the internet data, but the Tango video calls over 3G / 4G may consume your cellular minutes so would not be free, but still you can use them when WIFI is not there with you,

You can now make Tango mobile video calls between iPhones and Android phones,

There is yet another such 2 way video calling app over iPhone 4 from Fring which also works over 3G, 4G or WIFI (and iPhone 4 to any video calling mobile), Fring is a known name in mobile VOIP calling solutions and is a company based in Israel …

Call Free from USA: Overseas - Long Distance: No-VOIP

Free Calling within / from USA to World

Freephone2phone.com (it’s a talk-on-the-phone channel / like a cable channel accessed by phone: now is in beta a non-VOIP call provider) is giving away the free phone (from and to landline or cell) calls (advertisement supported) from USA to 50+ countries in the world and also the free long distance calling within the USA,

It’s purely a phone to phone non VOIP calling and unlike pc to pc one,

This free calling service is ads supported and the ad only would be hear by you and not by your call recipient at the other end of the telephone : )

Nothing to buy, no pc, no internet, no credit card numbers, no registration etc needed, just dial the phone number from your cell or landline, and get connected from US based cell phones and landline phones to the world or whole of the USA, via a local access number provided by them,

You can call free landline phones in 50+ nations and also the mobile phones in these countries: United States of America, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Thailand,

Do not forget you still have to pay for the local call minutes (using their local access number) to your telecom operator, for what you are using the free long distance or international calling part!

Each free call length is maximum of 5 minutes only, that make sense for a free ad supported voice call, time length is not too short, what I think : )
