Free Voice & Video Calling Over Your Existing Broadband Connection; No Additional Monthly Fees
With an estimated 57% of adults in the U.S. having broadband access to the home1, the Internet makes it easy to deliver real-time video and web entertainment to enhance people’s lives. Today, people are spending longer periods of time away from loved ones due to work factors and the economic climate forcing Americans to travel less. An all new consumer multimedia phone has hit the market making it easy to see and hear family and friends around the world for free via an existing broadband connection. Using the broadband service provider of your choice and Grandstream’s built-in IPVideoTalk, the GXV3140 desktop IP Multimedia Phone offers, for no additional monthly fee, face-to-face two-way or three-way video calling out of the box.
The GXV3140 IP Multimedia Phone marries free video/voice calling with Web and social multimedia applications. The ‘always-on’ desktop phone help you stay in visual contact with family, friends and colleagues for free by using the existing broadband connection in your home or office.
“Using the GXV3140 to keep in touch with family over the holidays has been a real value-add to the quality of our life,” said Philip Ferreira, editor-in-chief of Reviewboard Magazine. “Because the GXV3140 works over the Internet, we didn’t have to worry about expensive long distance calling or video phone costs.” He added, “We could literally put the phone at the table and keep the call going, talking and eating just like they were with us. It is the best way to keep in touch with family or friends without breaking the bank.”
High quality multimedia video devices packed with rich applications also bring an exciting social networking experience that lends to creating lasting business and personal relationships. In addition to real-time video/voice calls, the GXV3140 includes instant access to Web and social multimedia applications. With a 4.3″ digital color LCD screen, the ‘always-on’ GXV3140 has an integrated web browser giving consumers convenient, one-touch access to personalized RSS feeds of real-time online information services (news updates, stock updates, weather forecasts, directory searches, etc.), thousands of Internet radio stations, social networking sites (Facebook) and popular streaming Internet entertainment sites like YouTube.
“Consumers have historically shied away from video calling due to its perceived complexity, the cost associated with endpoint hardware and of course the ‘dreaded’ monthly service fee. But with the Grandstream 3104 users will find themselves delighted by its ease of use, value price point and quality build. Plus it comes with the free IPVideoTalk service. Where I come from, we call this a great deal,” said Garrett Smith, Director of Marketing at VoIP Supply and author of the popular VoIP site SmithOnVoIP.com.
