"While VoIP over Wi-Fi is no longer leading edge, VoWi-Fi on a
mobile phone is still pushing the envelope a little - VoIP over 3G
even more so.
"That CounterPath, maker of some of the most popular softphones,
recently jumped into mobile VoIP with both feet is a sign the
market is maturing. (A softphone is a program that turns a
computing device into a phone so it can work with a VoIP service.)
But as we discovered, the market may not be fully mature yet.
"CounterPath launched an iPhone version of its Bria softphone in
the summer, and last month added Bria Android Edition ($7.99).
According to some company literature, the new product works with
any device running Android 2.1 or higher. CounterPath has also
published a list of compatible devices."
