In the past week Globe7 quietly launched the latest version of its
desktop communication, Video and News application - Globe7 3.0 Beta -
offering real-time free voice communication, video streaming,
instant messaging, 1 GB free storage space for video and photos
uploading and sharing, news feeds and other features. The previous
version was downloaded over 17 million times and the new more
attractive version will probably top this figure bringing Globe7 even
closer to Skype.
With the new soft phone,
users receive a real U.S. telephone
number, which allows them to make and receive telephone calls from any
computer, cell phone and landline. The software is a SIP-based powered
application with ILBC codecs, quick and easy to download with only 7 MB
of data compared to the 18 MB required for Globe7's earlier version.
