Web Calling–So What?
While it’s great to see that Gizmo Project is joining the Web Calling party, allowing people to make calls from a web page. However, this is nothing new. Of course, there are a lot of startups offering similar functionality today, including PhoneGnome who recently added this functionality as part of their 2.0 launch. The difference with them is that you will get a call on your registered PhoneGnome number instead of dealing with an embedded soft client. And then again, Broadvox Direct has had this feature on it’s user portal for a couple of years now, and you can specify both endpoints of the call to boot.
These services are useful, don’t get me wrong, but they aren’t new and seem to reek of “me too.”
