LAS VEGAS, NV - Thursday, January 6th, 2011
Ooma, Inc., the leading provider of HD-quality free home phone service, today announced the Ooma Mobile High-Definition (HD) Application (app) is now available for purchase by Ooma customers with Android phones via the Android Market. The company also announced that the Ooma Mobile app previously available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad has been upgraded to include Ooma’s HD Voice technology.
The Ooma Mobile HD app offers Ooma customers the ability to save money on their mobile calling plans with improved convenience, functionality and outstanding voice quality with Ooma PureVoiceTM HD technology. With the app, Ooma customers can use their Ooma account to make domestic and international calls from Android or Apple iOS devices over any Wi-Fi or 3G network. This allows users to bypass the high cost of domestic and international calling associated with mobile calling plans from major carriers.
The Ooma Mobile HD App offers HD Voice, a component of Ooma PureVoice HD technology, delivering twice the fidelity of standard phone calls for a richer, more natural sounding conversation between Ooma customers. Ooma Mobile HD is one of the first mobile VoIP offerings in the United States to support HD Voice technology. Since October 2010, Ooma Telo customers have been enjoying HD calls at home, and the addition of HD support on the Ooma Mobile HD App allows them to take this enriched calling on the go via a wide array of mobile devices.
“Our customers asked for this and today we are delivering the Ooma Mobile HD app for Android phones and Apple mobile devices so they can experience cost savings and top-notch voice quality while on the go,” said Jim Gustke, Vice President of Marketing at Ooma. “Now Ooma customers enjoy the superior technology of HD Voice at home on their Ooma Telo and on their mobile device as Ooma continues to integrate the home and mobile calling experience with a difference you can hear.”
The Ooma Mobile HD Application is available for download in the Android Market and iTunes App Store for $9.99. Mobile calling minutes on Ooma Mobile HD start at just 1.9 cents per minute in the U.S. or less than half a penny per minute when you sign up for a mobile calling plan from Ooma. Ooma Premier customers using Ooma Mobile receive 250 minutes of free U.S. calling every month. In addition, Ooma offers low rates and calling plans for international calls. Use of the Ooma Mobile HD app requires an Ooma account.
Current users of the Ooma Mobile App can visit the iTunes App Store to download a free upgrade.
As part of today’s announcements, Ooma is unveiling a mobile-optimized version of “My Ooma”. Customized to work on mobile browsers, Ooma customers can easily access and listen to voicemails, check phone logs, lookup contacts, change preferences and check international calling balances – all from their smart phone.
