VoIP with Symbian OS and Opera Browser

JAJAH is an innovative and simple way to make cheap calls using the Internet—without headphones, microphones or software downloads. JAJAH connects users phone-to-phone, landline or mobile, local or anywhere else in the world.

JAJAH has announced its web-activated telephony service will be available on mobile phones as early as May 2006. This announcement follows the signing of exclusive agreements to intergrate JAJAH within Opera browsers and the Symbian OS.

For now, Symbian phones represent a minuscule fraction of the nearly 2 billion cell phones in circulation, and many are used by mobile professionals. Symbian is significant despite the low market share because major cell phone makers control the company that owns the operating system. The handset makers intend Symbian to serve as the basis for next generation handsets to come.

JAJAH is also to become an addition to the Opera Web browser for both personal computers and cell phones. Opera has small, cult-like following among personal computer users that, in comparison, pales to the market share of the leading browsers, but it's a brighter story when focusing on cell phones. About 20 million cell phones, many of them using Symbian, come with the browser already loaded.
