Page 1 of 1
Consumers with free e-mail accounts at CommTouch partner Web sites can now simply click on a Net2Phone link from inside their e-mail user interface to make inexpensive telephone calls through the Internet to any telephone number in the world. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.
A single, unified address book in the e-mail inbox contains both e-mail and telephone contact information.
"We have always viewed the Web e-mail account as a user's 'home' on the Internet," said Isabel Maxwell, CommTouch's president. "For the first time, users have a home telephone that lets them call anyone on the planet--and for a lot less than Ma Bell charges."
"Whenever people send a message from their free e-mail account, they can also choose to dial a low-rate phone call," said Jonathan Reich, senior vice president of marketing and business development at Net2Phone. "With an integrated e-mail address/phone book, the user has all their options a single click away."
