I’ll Hate The iPhone A Little Less With VoIP

A few weeks ago I posted 11 reasons the iPhone is the worst cellphone I have ever owned.

I am not writing you today to retract those statements. I still think the iPhone is the worst cellphone I have used since the early 2000’s, but with news that Apple is okay with third party developers releasing VoIP applications that leverage the iPhone’s WiFi capabilities, I will hate it just a little less in the near future.

I expect that, with 27% of the North American smartphone market share, the iPhone will see plenty of VoIP applications coming very soon, which should prove to be a boon for Mobile VoIP service providers.

Here are a few company’s that i expect to see iPhone VoIP applications from:

    I knew someone would call me out on missing some folks! I agree that the promise is big…I hope that the companies can start showing some real revenues before the incumbents take notice and start offering the service themselves.

    I am sure you will see something from Cisco…but it won’t be SIP and it won’t be free.

    Maybe, but I have used a variety of Mobile VoIP services and have been surprised at the call quality.
