WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pervasip's wholly owned subsidiary, VoX Communications, a leading provider of wholesale Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services and cloud based computing, has announced that it has launched a mobile VoIP app for use on all Android mobile phones and Android tablets.
Pervasip's Chief Information Officer, Mark Richards, noted, "We are very excited about delivering a mobile VoIP app via Google's incredibly popular Android Market. We believe that this venue will give us significant exposure, as this app will be available to over 100 million Android smart phones globally and provide unlimited calls and text to other VoX users globally for as little as $4.95 a month."
A VoX subscriber can subscribe entirely on the phone and choose a U.S. phone number without leaving the interface, which makes the sign up process more elegant than many competitors. The mobile VoIP plans start at $4.95, which is a low cost of entry for a high quality and reliable VoIP service offering. VoX also offers 500 minutes for $9.95, and $29.95 for unlimited calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
Richards continued, "The application is very sophisticated and has some interesting features that give us an advantage over other VoIP apps. For instance, VoX becomes available in the phone's primary dialer with a single touch and you do not have to sign in every time, as the Skype app requires. With our app you can also set it to automatically register with VoX when Wi-Fi is turned on, or keep it registered for 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. We believe that we can add video calling to this product by the end of the year. This enhancement will enable video calling between an Android phone and an Ojo Vision video phone. As a nimble development technology company, we intend to produce a tablet video app that brings superior video calling to the Android Market."
"We have the ability to easily update plans offered, and we intend to be creative with target audiences that are looking for fixed blocks of calls for a fixed dollar amount rather than charging a monthly fee for services that people don't always use. This new interface enables us to tailor the plans offered so that we could even offer a $1 plan that only depletes a consumer's cash balance when calls are made. We intend to offer similar creative calling plans to those offered recently by Vonage and also intend to offer them at competitive prices," added Richards.

INSTAT estimates that the number of mobile VoIP users will approach 300 million by 2013: http://www.instat.com/press.asp?ID=2747&sku=IN0904428MCM
Gartner also estimates that global smart phone sales will grow from just 298 million units in 2010 to 999 million units in 2014 and global tablet sales will grow from 17.6 million units in 2010 to over 220 million units in 2014.
