SIPphone, the company behind Gizmo Project has released a new version of its client that works with Nokia 770 Internet tablet, giving users ability to IM and make phone calls using high speed Internet connections.

This is the second IM client now available for Nokia 770. Google Talk is the other IM that works with Nokia 770, which went through a major OS upgrade. The new version of Gizmo Project application was developed by Blue Digits a small start-up that also has released VM Rover, a virtual voice mail box application. Bluedigits is a full time contractor for SIPphone, so one should say, SIPphone developed this app!

Andy just called me from his Nokia 770 using Gizmo, and the call was absolutely clear. He was not even using a headset. Compared to Google Talk on Nokia 770, Gizmo is just miles ahead.

  1. Small, perhaps – but by no means immaterial! Blue Digits is the company, if I am not mistaken, that created GAIM? That makes them a major player in the IM space, and the alliance with Nokia should (hopefully) help plow $ into the development of GAIM and LibGAIM, which powers IM clients such as Adium on the Mac and others.

  2. So – You have one? Been considering it for a while… I love the Nokia stuff, but was wondering what the Maemo Linux apps were like… Gizmo is a great addition!

  4. Why do they use two names, SipPhone and Gizmo Project? It’s confusing.

  5. No, Gaim was not created by a company, it’s just an open source project which started life as an AIM client by Mark Spencer, who now heads up the Asterisk project.

  6. SIPphone is the company and Gizmo Project is the product.

    Apple is the company, iTunes is the product.
    Microsoft is the company, XP is the product.

    And yes, the voice quality especially for IP calls is stunningly good.

  10. Google Talk is based on open standards and is compatible with all instant messaging clients that support Jabber/XMPP.

    Nokia 770 users won’t have to completely depend on Google, though. SIPPhone Inc. intends to bring its Gizmo Project to this device. This VoIP software will let users make and receive calls from public telephone networks.
