Fring for UIQ updated

Fring for Sony Ericsson's Symbian UIQ 3 powered smartphones has been updated. The version 3.30 brings several improvements:
  • File transfer - now you'll be able to send files to your fring and PC buddies (currently MSN only, but more will come shortly)
  • More languages - fring for UIQ is now available in English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Italian, Russian
  • Chat improvements - chat experience is now closer to PC chat sessions. Still haven't tried this, so I can't confirm it.
  • Privacy settings are also enhanced. You can choose to show or hide your signature on PC IM clients as well as control mood message and switch them on/off.
  • UIQ smartphone users can now change their fringtones.
The update is available for all phones on 3G or Wi-Fi Symbian 8 or 9, Windows Mobile 5 or 6 and UIQ handsets  with 3G/GPRS/Wi-Fi network coverage.

fring™ is a mobile internet service & community that enables users to access & interact with their social networks on-the-go, make free calls and live chat with all your fring, Skype®, MSN® Messenger, Google Talk™, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahoo!™ and AIM®* friends using your handset’s internet connection rather than costly cellular airtime minutes.

The fring™ mobile VoIP solution maximizes use of the internet capabilities embedded within a subscriber's handset. The fring solution establishes a peer-to-peer VoIP connection between calling parties, enabling true VoIP sessions between fring enabled handsets and also between handsets and PCs.

fring is based on a unique thin-client technology that for the first time enables true VoIP over 3G, GPRS and WiFi networks. fring dynamically adapts itself to the optimal network and handset characteristics while enabling seamless roaming VoIP on multiple networks. The dedicated three-sided P2P network architecture has been developed to support near telco-grade voice quality and network efficiency.

Downloadable app = open address book. If you will, intased of installing apps for dedicated services, the contacts app is essentially a VoIP, IMS, and IM browser (think Firefox out of the box), and all of these services are simply extensions to it. It would be easier to develop this model, but a pain in the butt to do carrier testing with it.Carriers would have to adopt it to be successful though; they'd instantly see that such a model means that they could be easily shut out of a user's address book.The other issue is to figure out a QoS metric for VoIP providers that's consistent. Right now, its not a nice proposition to figure this out, and many of these providers give nothing other than a statement (if you have a data connection, we work) towards their service quality. This needs to change for the consumer's interest, even if it means fewer low-cost services.

This is a matter of perepsctive. Definitely VOIP will not dominate calls within one network or even within one country, because financial incentive is not sufficient. But clearly this is a great method of reducing cost of international calls. For all S60 Nokia devices Fring would be enough and depending on a specific model of a phone it gives between 2 and 5 hours of essentially free of charge international 3G calls on one charge. I did 200h of 3G calls and so far I have not noticed any action on the side of 3G providers, but probably it varies from country to country.
