Vonage Releases iPhone and Blackberry Apps

Updated: January 07, 2011

Vonage released its rumored iPhone app today, along with an unheralded but just-as-important app for the RIM Blackberry.

The two apps can be found at the new VonageMobile site. They allow iPhone users and Blackberry users to make international calls over the Vonage network at much better rates. Sample rates to landlines in major Western European countries are as low as 2 cents a minute and climb for calls to mobile phones and to less common destinations.

Vonage is not the first VoIP provider to link its network to smartphones – nor is it the cheapest. But it is perhaps the biggest and best-known VoIP vendor to do so and Wall Street at least thinks that the move is a good one. Just the rumor of the iPhone app was enough to bump Vonage's stock price by over 10% two weeks ago. It slid back down again in the intervening time but this morning, with the announcement it was back up by almost 15%.
