Compaq Computer's iPaq handheld computer can now make local and international calls at domestic rates in Singapore. The new service is related to a deal between Singapore communications services company UGotACall and Compaq Singapore.
Targeted at the corporate market, companies must first install UGotACall's server and its software for individual iPaqs. The main catch is that an office must be equipped with a wireless LAN (local area network). In addition, to make international calls, the recipient must install the server.
