Nokia and SingTel are announcing their collaboration to bring together cellular voice and Wireless LAN in an integrated dual-mode telephony solution on Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia N80 Internet Edition (pictured).
Selected SingTel Mobile subscribers will be invited for a service trial which will allow them to use voice and data services from home and on the move through SingNet Wireless Surf Zones. The commercial launch of the service is expected to be later this year.
Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and the Nokia N80 Internet Edition are the first Nokia devices that are able to support SIP-based Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). All three devices work on 2G (GSM), 3G (WCDMA) and Wireless LAN networks. The Nokia N80 Internet Edition enables seamless home media networking between compatible TVs, audio systems and PCs.
SingTel's VoIP on mobile service will be available to non-business customers on postpaid mobile plans, allowing them to make unlimited local calls using their SIP-enabled VoIP devices. The service can be accessed using the WiFi network at home or through more than 330 SingTel Wireless Hotspots across the island. The subscription fees for the service will be announced later when the service is launched.
