ePhone app for the BlackBerry PlayBook transforms the compact tablet into a sizable phone
Of course, it’s an alternative to the tablet’s video chat feature, but for those who are interested in actually placing calls to phone numbers, they might want to take a look at Comwave’s ePhone app for the tablet. As you’d surmise, the app basically allows you to place voice phone calls with the tablet – though, it’d definitely be an attention grabber when holding the compact tablet to your ear.
Even though it’s in beta testing right now, you can score yourself a free 3-day trial period that provides the allotment of 100 minutes worth of phone calls. Furthermore, if you decide that the service is agreeable to your liking, then you have the option of signing up for an annual subscription that runs at a mere $20 – thus, giving you 250 minutes per month to call 57 countries. Additionally, you get unlimited incoming phone calls, free ePhone to ePhone voice & video calling, and your own number.
