Many Palm users have been praying for a good VoIP program, and your prayers may soon be answered. MobiVoIP is a new program currently in beta. I happen to be one of the lucky beta testers, and I’ll be happy to pass my findings onto you now.
MobiVoIP requires your Palm to be able to connect to the internet through Bluetooth, Wifi, or EVDO. When you place a call, it sends your call through the internet and connects you to whoever you’re calling…FREE*! (See comments)
I use PocketPCTech’s microphone/adapter for the Tungsten C and highly recommend their products for those of you who do not have microphones on their devices. A full review was done on this product by TamsPalm and can be found by searching our site.
Using this adapter, I have found that I have very good voice quality using the program. There is some static in the background, but the program is still very practical. There is a slight delay from when I speak to when the other party hears my voice, but this can be expected when using any VoIP program.
This is an excellent program and works very well. It also has the ability to dial numbers out of your contacts database. My only gripe against the program is that it doesn’t allow connection through a proxy. One of the programmers explained to me that this would be very difficult to accomplish for a VoIP program.
Please email the programmers and encourage them to keep working hard on this program. This is definitely a one of a kind program and deserves to be noticed by the Palm community.
