A new version of the magicJack device, that allows free calls from cell phones in the home. Earlier the company heavily promoted on TV the ex-version of the device, which was the cheap internet gadget. The new version of the device will surely invite protest from various cellular companies. The novelty of this magicJack resides in its usage of radio frequencies without the permission of cellular companies, who pay a billion dollars amount for the same radio frequencies exclusive licenses.
The device is planned to start to be selling in about four months, as YMax Corporation, stated this week at the International Consumers Electronics Show. The device will be sold for $40 , which is exactly the price of the old model, and consumers will be able to make free calls to U.S and Canada for whole one year through this device. One can term this device as a small cellular tower for the home.
An exactly deck card size plugs into the PC, having a broadband internet connection. This deck size device then detects whenever a cell phone is brought near to it, ranging within 8 feets and it makes a call. The user is needed to enter a short code on the phone. After wards the phone is attached to the magic Jack which routes the call by itself, via the internet instead of going to the cellular companies tower; provided it remains within the range; which according to YMax is said to be 3,000 square foot home. The great news is that no minutes are subtracted from the user’s account at the cellular company; only extra fees with international calls is taken from the users having an account at magicJack.
Dan Borislow CEO YMax stated that the device will connect to any phone which uses GSM technology, and which includes phones from AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA. A successful demo was also given that showed successful cals placed and received through the magicJack. The device is said to be legal as it doesn’t exends its wireless spectrum to home.
