iCall for iPhone and iPod Touch to officially allow VoiP calls soon

Steve Jobs might still be hard headed and not say explicitly that they will allow VoIP calls on the upcoming 3G iPhone, the following news bit almost eliminates all doubts.

iCall, which was created for the sole purpose of making calls over Wi-Fi, is going to be launched on the iTunes App Store with the rest of the iPhone apps very soon. This still isn’t official word about VoIP on the iPhone but I think it’s close enough.

iCall for iPhone and iPod Touch to officially allow VoiP calls soon

And since the iPod Touch also runs on the OS as the first-gen iPhone, I think it’s safe to say that there will be an iCall for iPod Touch as well.

iCall for iPhone and iPod Touch should let users:

1. Make and receive calls over WiFi
2. Transfer inbound calls from a regular cell call to WiFi instantly and seamlessly – save your expensive minutes
3. Access your same address book
4. Customize your voicemail options

Cheapskates and budget nuts are very happy to learn about this, I’m sure.

    This is awesome news, finally an official VOIP app!

    As the Touch doesn't have a mike, I think that might be a problem for VOIP – heck it's one of the few iPods not to have a voice recorder available.

    Funny, never even heard of any iPod with a voice recorder function. But as for the touch not having a mic, there's a workaround for that, but only if you dare to tinker with it and spend a certain amount of money for the accessory.

    VOIP is surely the way to go these days. Cheap and good.
