Yahoo, AOL, MSN IM and Push To Talk VoIP

Push to Talk VoIP

Free Nextel Style Push-to-Talk for Windows Mobile or Symbian PDA

Have you ever wanted to have one of those cool Nextel style walkie-talkie style phones but just didn't want to become a Nextel subscriber? Well now you can enjoy that cool push-to-talk on any connected PDA or Symbian phone. It's perfect for Wi-Fi enabled PDAs and phones and also works on your laptop or desktop PC.

Palringo is a unique and free Instant Messaging program with push-to-talk VoIP functionality that runs on Windows Mobile phones, Symbian phones, and PCs. Palringo allows you to instantly exchange text, photos and audio Instant Messages with an individual contact or even a group.

This multi-platform support allows you to stay connected with your contacts whether you're working at your PC or on the go with your mobile device.

In addition, Palringo lets you send photos, vocal messages and exchange text IMs with other IM systems such as AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, and a host of others. Its superb IM interoperability ensures you can at least IM other popular IM programs.

The niftiest feature is the push-to-talk (PTT) feature, which lets you instantly VoIP your buddies like a walkie-talkie or a Nextel phone.

One-way at a time communications is desirable in situations where you just have brief messages or need to broadcast something to several people all at once. That's what makes the walkie-talkie ideal for coordinating  teams and other groups.I can foresee Palringo being very addictive for teenagers -- but also a useful feature for mobile sales teams.

They're currently working on a Java version, which will add even more supported devices. It doesn't offer full VoIp features like Skype - it's strictly an IM and PTT application, but for anyone that needs a great IM client and needs to contact groups of people, it's ideal because it's light-weight and portable across devices and networks.
