Move over Skype. Another weirdly-named, European-based VoIP provider offering free or dirt cheap long distance calls has emerged to challenge the reigning champ. Jajah Inc.—founded last year by Austrian entrepreneurs Roman Scharf, the company's marketing brains, and Daniel Mattes, its technology wiz—offers what it claims is the first "Web-activated" VoIP phone service.
It could indeed give Skype a run for its money—especially with the announcement this week of a mobile version of the service that will allow users to bypass expensive cellular long distance charges and make calls via Jajah instead.
