New Raketu Web Application Optimized for Blackberry Allows Business Users to Make Free Calls and Send SMS Text Messages Internationally.

Raketu, a leading global Internet communications, information, and entertainment company, today debuted its voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) calling web application optimized for the BlackBerry(R). The new web-based application allows business users of the BlackBerry Curve(TM), BlackBerry 8800 Series, and BlackBerry Pearl(TM) to make international calls totally free or at Raketu's ultra-low cost VoIP calling rates. Additionally, business users can send SMS Text Messages
globally, and send email all from within the Raketu BlackBerry Application.

"With over twelve million users of the BlackBerry worldwide, the introduction of our Raketu BlackBerry Application marks our definitive entry into the mobile business market," said Greg Parker, president and CEO of Raketu. "For businesses whose employees initiate a significant number of international calls from their BlackBerry mobile devices, Raketu's BlackBerry Application is a great way to reduce monthly calling costs."

Raketu's BlackBerry Application Features
Raketu's new BlackBerry Application is entirely web-based and does not require consumers to download any software. BlackBerry users can sign up and access the service via their BlackBerry web browser at BlackBerry.raketu.com. Using Raketu's BlackBerry application, users can call Internationally for free or at Raketu's ultra-low cost VoIP calling rates. Raketu users who sign up and make a payment of USD9.95, USD24.95 or USD49.95 to their Raketu account are eligible for
up to 600 free calling minutes per month towards BlackBerry initiated phone-to-phone calls. See Raketu - RakOut with Raketu! - home for details and free zones.

Additionally, Raketu's BlackBerry Application allows users to send SMS Text Messages globally at the lowest international text rates available. The application can also be used to send email.

That's Raketu's only (and big) flaw. Logging in and filling a Web form every time you want to place a call or send SMS is extremely inconvenient.

True. I've been using their service for a while now. They're fairly quick on updates and releasing new kinds of stuff. I'm sure they'll come up with an app for BB soon. They made one for iPhone (flash-based) recently. The service itself is pretty good and cheap. I call a lot internationally and that really saves me a dime quite often. = ) But again, it's purely a metter of preference.
