Portable VoIP Service Debuts

An innovative device and VoIP service called "VoiceStick" has been released by i2Telecom. Awarded the Internet Telephony Product of the Year, the device is a 50MB USB flash drive bundled with a Plantronics headset. It can be plugged into any internet enabled computer (dial up or broadband) and in conjunction with one of their flat rate service programs, can be used to call to virtually any telephone number in the world.

The service is aimed at people that are on the go including business travelers, college students and anyone wanting a low cost telephone service.

To use the service, you purchase a VoiceStick for $29.99 (current US price) which includes the Plantronics PC headset (plugs into your PC microphone and audio out connections) and a phone number. When you receive the VoiceStick you just activate a calling plan which ranges from $9.99 to $37.99 per month for unlimited calling. International rates are reasonable, but not the cheapest on the market.

You can plug the VoiceStick into any internet enabled computer and make or receive calls, access voicemail, transfer or use up to 50MB of flash drive storage, or call other VoiceStick users, which is free.
