This is a lot like Truphone, which we told you about in December. Leading IP telecommunications company JAJAH has announced a complete overhaul of the iPod Touch. They want to turn the device into a fully functional iPhone.
The new capabilities will enable carriers and non-carriers to launch the service under their own brand and provide customers with the ability to make low-cost phone calls and send SMS text messages to any phone in the world from their iPod Touch. Consumers would only need a Wi-Fi connection, no SIM card or contract. This is big news, what with the iPod Touch being one of the most popular consumer devices in the world.
JAJAH’s IP communications platform gives its partners everything they need to launch the service immediately. That includes the application itself and the entire suite of management services from termination of calls, quality control, billing and processing of payments in 200 countries around the world. They have big plans indeed.
