A lot of noise today about Packet 8 getting its video phone a prominent placement in Alias, a show about Jennifer Garner. (Lets not kid ourselves people … we just like to see a beautiful woman kick some ass!) “The use of Packet8 VideoPhones on the sets of these prominent television shows underscores the notion that videophones and other broadband internet-enabled technologies like voice over internet protocol (VoIP) telephone service, are poised to become mainstream communications vehicles,” Rees said. This clearly is good news for Packet 8, which has been withering like a lily in hot Arizona sun, especially when compared to Vonage’s marketing steamroller. It is important to point out that this is not a VoIP phone in the purest sense, though non video-calls, i.e voice calls can be deemed VoIP. I had written something about Packet 8’s Videophones but cannot seem to find the link!
