There's been considerable talk about VoIP services
one the iPhone. With the release of the iPhone SDK, it was just a
matter of time before native applications for the iPhone started
cropping up. And, it looks like leading VoIP provider fring has managed
to beat out the competition by launching the first ever VoIP
application for the iPhone.
fring says that their natively installed VoIP client for the iPhone
is a "special pre-release R&D version of fring" created in
conjunction with the Holon Institute of Technology academic research
labs. The point of this release is to get feedback on the application
in preparation for a full-blown, final release version later this year.
You'll need a jailbroken iPhone and access to Installer.app (this is a native application, after all), so get to jailbreaking your iPhone if you haven't already done so.
