Copenhagen, September 14, 2009 – Vopium today announced that it has joined the Symbian
Foundation, which, together with its ecosystem, is creating the most proven, open and complete
mobile software platform. The platform is based on Symbian OS and software assets contributed
by Nokia, NTT DOCOMO, and Sony Ericsson, including the S60 and MOAP(S) user interfaces.
“The Symbian Foundation welcomes Vopium into the community,” said David Wood, catalyst and
futurist for Symbian. “Applications developers are crucial to creating the richest posssible user
experiences. We are eager to see the innovations that Vopium will bring to Symbian consumers.”
As a member of the Symbian Foundation, Vopium gains the immediate right to license the
Symbian Foundation platform, royalty free and without source code fees; part in joint marketing and branding campaigns.
“Having been member of SPN ((Symbian Partner Network) since the very early days of Vopium, I
am very pleased now that we have been approved as member of the Symbian Foundation” said
Tanveer Sharif, Vopium’s CEO. “We will now be able to tap right into the Symbiaan Foundation
platform and not least be on the forefront of new OS releases and updates”
How Vopium works:
Vopium is a free mobile software application that leverages mobile VoIP and Wi-Fii technology to
greatly reduce the cost of international phone calls made from mobile phones while also
maintaining excellent call quality. Free and easy to download, Vopium integrates directly with the
user’s mobile address book, and automatically re-routing all international calls via the least
expensive method available. In addition to heavily discounted international calls, Vopium users
can also slash the costs of sending text messages (SMS) abroad.
Vopium is a carrier-grade mobile telephony service designed to offer affordable and reliable
international calls from any mobile handset. By using the Vopium application on their mobile
phones to make calls from their home country, consumers and businesses alike can save up to
90% on international mobile and landline calls. Unlike more restrictive mobile VoIP solutions,
Vopium supports hundreds of handsets across Symbian, Windows Mobile, iPhone, Java,
Blackberry Rim and Android. Vopium uses intelligent routing and connection technology which
automatically and seamlessly delivers the lowest cost connection for any international call.
Vopium has offices in London, Copenhagen, Luxembourg and Pakistan. Vopium was recently
awarded the Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award and is listed on NYSE Euronext
(MLVOP). To learn more, please visit http://vopium.com
