Another Skype Rival

Another Skype wannabe: Gizmo: A free phone for your computer:

An internet telephone. As simple as an instant messenger. Now you’re talking.

Make all your calls from the comfort of your desktop. With Gizmo, it’s point, click, talk. For free.

Say goodbye to high price calling, and say “hello” to anyone online, anywhere on earth.

  • It’s not “just another” Skype wannabe – it tries hard to copy what it can but it has the advantage that it works with SIP which means (unlike Skype) that people using all kinds of different Voice over IP services should be able to talk to their users. I am however more interested in which communicates with Skype as well as SIP phones, has text message support and videoconferencing etc. I am waiting for it to become available on Mac though.
