Another alternative for low cost calling: NetTalk

Techstination feature for Friday, September 30, 2011

Another alternative for low cost phone calls.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      The NetTalk Duo is the name of a little gadget that plugs into your home of office Internet connection….or alternatively into a laptop.   Plug in a phone or cordless phone system, pick a number online and you’ve got service.   It competes with other voice over IP services and devices like MagicJack.   VP Nick Kyriakidis…

The beauty of our product,  we have a patent on it, it works both ways.  It works similar to Vonage, where you can connect it directly to a router, where you don’t have to rely on a computer to make phone calls.  Or if you’re traveling and you don’t have a router for whatever reason,  you can connect the device through the USB of your computer.”

Making the line portable.  The 69 dollar NetTalk Duo includes one year of calling in the U.S. and Canada.  After that service runs 29 dollars a year.
