releases a native Windows Mobile beta version of its mobile VoIP, text and IM application. EQO is a free mobile application that lets users call anywhere in the world for rates as low as 2.3 cents USD/minute and also features inexpensive international text messages and free access to popular instant messaging services, including MSN, AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, ICQ and Jabber. By developing a Windows Mobile native version of EQO, Windows Mobile smartphone users can enjoy a faster and more responsive mobile VoIP experience.
EQO is already available on hundreds of device models and as of today is available as a native client for Windows Mobile versions 2003 and higher. This makes EQO available to the millions of Windows Mobile smartphones that have shipped worldwide (9 million in 2006 alone) on popular devices such as the HTC Touch, Samsung Blackjack, Motorola Q, Palm 750w and HP iPAQ
By using EQO, Windows Mobile smartphone users can now save up to 95% on international calls to landlines and mobile phones, and save up to 70% on international text messages. In addition, calls and texts exchanged between EQO users are free. Once the EQO application is downloaded, users can automatically import all of their existing contacts into their EQO phonebook. With EQO's presence feature, users are able to see which of their contacts are online and who is available for a call, to receive a text or have a chat using EQO's free IM feature.
EQO also announced today that EQO Chief Executive Officer Bill Tam will speak as part of VON Fall 2007's Innovators Track session titled "New Services with Old Lines" on Wednesday, October 31 from 3:15pm - 4:30pm.
