Re: BB10 launches Jan 30

I imagine a some point VoIP will be the long distance method. It's cheaper for everyone. Technology simply has to catch up..especially the upstream portion of it. I imagine in 10 years, calling a cell phone in Europe will be 1 cent a minute, if calling from a cell phone of VoIP. (unlike the 20 cent PLUS they charge today). Carrier (in Europe) will make money on the data usage as opposed to the caller paid method they use now.

It'll happen naturally once the telecomunications industry offers these features intuitively in a competative nature on the devices and in their services. The speed of that will overtake the speed of corporate America trying to get these technologies working in their companies. Now that we have all the major phones with the ability to communicate over data to other people of similar phones, in a few years I'd expect that we'll have a default cross platform direct communications method (without the need for 'apps' or proprietary software).
