The demand for pockets PC’s have taken the lift lately. What has made pocket PCs more interesting is not that you can have a mini-computer in your pocket or bag, which you can use to read ebooks, make calculations and stuff; but rather, the fact that you can have full connectivity while on the move. Wi-Fi is a privileged wireless technology for getting connectivity to pocket PCs.
Why Use VoIP on a Pocket PC?
Now, why would one want to use VoIP over her pocket PC while she can use her cell phone? The answer is the cost. Using a cell phone is quite expensive. You can spend up to half a dollar per minute on cell phone calls. This is considerably expensive compared to the less-than-one-cent cost per minute for VoIP.
How To Use VoIP With a Pocket PC?
You could use your pocket PC just like your desktop or laptop PC. You could connect a phone to it, or use an IP handset. But that will hamper mobility.
For total mobility, install a softphone on your pocket PC. A good example is Skype. Once you install the Skype software, you can already use its free service for communication with people who are using the Skype free PC-to-PC service. For this, you can use a headphone or any multimedia hearing and speaking device that fits you.
If you are not using free PC-to-PC service, and want to access people on their phones or be reached on your phone; with services like SkypeIn or SkypeOut, or something like the Vonage softphone, you will need to have credits (in terms of minutes) for communication, which you pay for. This is quite cheap, compared to cell phone services.
