Nokia and Engin promise that â€œmaking Internet phone calls with the Nokia N80 Internet Edition is as easy as making a traditional phone callâ€, with Ilkka Tales, CEO of Engin saying that: â€œPeople are increasingly using Internet Telephony to dramatically reduce the cost of their home and business phone bills. Now we can offer them the same savings breakthrough on their mobile phoneâ€.
Tales continues: â€œAlready more than one in four people are regularly using their mobile devices to access the Internet, which shows that the mass market is recognising the value of convergent devices. With the Nokia N80 Internet Edition, you can seamlessly blend together surfing the web and making cost-efficient Internet callsâ€.
Wanting to promote the cost benefits that VoIP offers, Tales continues that: â€œWith the proliferation of WiFi hot spots in the home, office and public areas, people can use the Nokia N80 to make calls, no matter where they are, over the Engin network at our low cost call rates. You can literally be in a public space, connected to a WiFi hotspot and make 10 cent untimed calls to landlines around Australia, and 20 cent untimed calls to 20 countries around the world.

I’m a technical person. I’ve played around with VoIP on my E61 using Truphone, and it really is quite easy. However this is something that needs to be done automatically with zero user intervention. How nice would it be if the phone knew your present location (GPS), it then turns on its WiFi radio and connects to a known access point for that area, then you’re in insta-cheap-call mode?
