The Mini WebPhone 4.0, introduced today at the ComNet networking industry trade show, allows for voice calls, instant messaging, and video streaming over the Net. The application is aimed at e-commerce companies who want to deploy voice capabilities on their Web sites.
Consumers will be able to download software from a participating e-commerce company's Web site, and then click on an icon in order to call the company, NetSpeak said.
Commtouch users can make telephone calls over the Net while they check their email, Net2Phone said. A Net2Phone link will be available within the Commtouch email program.
Net2Phone charges 4.9 cents per minute for domestic calls, 10 cents a minute for calls to Europe and Australia, and 20 cents a minute for calls to Japan.
