Vyke Communications plc (AIM: VYKE) announces today that it has extended its distribution channel for Nokia mobile phones. Vyke’s mobile Voice over Internet Protocol (“mVoIP”) service is now available for download in new WiFi enabled mobile devices in an increased number of global markets and variants.
The Vyke software and service package was initially launched in Download on the 13th March 2008 in a select number of European markets. Following this limited launch, Vyke has extended this distribution channel to a large number of global markets.
The on-device distribution channel has been extended in two ways:
1) Vyke’s installable mVoIP software and service package for the majority of WiFi enabled Nokia E and N series devices is now available from ‘Download’ portal in a large number of global markets
2) Vyke’s mVoIP service, with automatic handset configuration and account creation, is available to be downloaded from the homescreen of certain Nokia E75 handsets.
New users can create a Vyke account, receive free trial credit or purchase credit and start calling directly from their device.
Tommy Jensen, Executive Chairman, commented:
“We are pleased that Vyke’s mobile VoIP service and software is now available via this channel on a global basis. This is an important sales strategy for Vyke and we are delighted that we have been able to effectively extend this channel into new markets and additional handsets.”
