Yesterday, while flipping through my email, I was surprised to see some news I was anticipating. It was the timing that caught me by surprise. I didn’t expect this announcement until January. I’m not ashamed to say that I clicked open the email with the excitement of a kid on Christmas morning — the contents did not disappoint me.
For years (decades actually) we’ve seen it so often on television and in movies that it has practically become passe, even though most people have never experienced it. Perhaps living our whole lives without it has made it seem unimportant. Well, that is all changing. For you it is likely to change when you have your first experience. Of course, the “it” I’m referring to is “video calling.”
As you might recall from one recent blog, I’ve had great passion for this capability for many years because of how it will eventually provide competitive advantages for businesses of all sizes. In another blog I wrote how video calling is already giving a special kind of pleasure to families and friends who are separated by distance.
For many people, this announcement means there is a way for people to lower their phone bill(s) AND get a boatload of new features, including video. In lieu of a complete feature list let me ask you a few questions. Are you interested in …
- Unlimited calling throughout the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico for $30/mo.?
- Free calling to the U.K., Italy, Spain, France, Ireland, Portugal, Australia and China?
- Free unlimited in-network calling anywhere in the world?
- Voicemail and tons of calling features included at no extra charge?
- Complete portability of your phone, phone number and service?
- VIDEO calling?
- Other ways to reduce your communications costs and customize your communications capabilities
Then this is a must see for you! I especially enjoy the unlimited calling to Australia. It’s impossible to describe the feeling I get while talking face-to-face with someone on the other side of the world.
In case we are not yet on the same wavelength, let me say that the significance of this announcement means millions of people will be able to replace their landline, lower their cell phone bill AND gain new, exciting and beneficial capabilities all at the same time. Especially in this period of economic uncertainty, isn’t it nice to be able to do a major value upgrade that actually SAVES money?
For those who are already enjoying the company’s current video phone, here’s a hint of why the new one will really make you smile.
- It is compatible with the current model.
- It supports a wireless Internet connection, making it more practical for traveling.
- It allows multiphone configurations like your landline.
- It has higher resolution than the current model.
As far as price is concerned, the cost of video calling is no longer a barrier as the November 26, 2008 news article explains.
Is video calling perfect? New technology never is. But, it’s already very good and it will continue to get better! I use my video phone regularly and would say without hesitation that in terms of quality, reliability, price and value, it’s ahead of any cell phone service I’ve ever had .
If you live anywhere in the U.S. I would be happy to personally arrange a demo so you can see (literally) for yourself what this is all about. Call or send an email.
