The Symbian Smartphone Show -- EQO Communications today announced plans to release a native Symbian C++ version of its mobile VoIP, text and IM application. EQO (pronounced "echo") is a free mobile application that lets users call anywhere in the world for rates as low as 1.2p/minute (2.3 cents USD) and also features inexpensive international text messages and free access to popular instant messaging services, including MSN, AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, ICQ and Jabber. By developing a Symbian C++ native version of EQO, Symbian smartphone users can enjoy a faster and more responsive mobile VoIP experience.

ADVERTISEMENT EQO also announced today that it has joined the Symbian Platinum Partner program to engage more closely with Symbian and its ecosystem of leading mobile technology innovators and service providers. Symbian develops and licenses Symbian OS, the market leading operating system for smartphones. Symbian OS is licensed by the world's leading mobile phone manufacturers, and to date, over 145 million Symbian smartphones have shipped worldwide to over 250 mobile network operators.

"EQO for Symbian OS is a compelling, functionally-rich application that provides Symbian smartphone users with a cost-effective solution for voice-over-IP (VoIP) and instant messaging (IM) services," said Jerry Panagrossi, Vice President, US Operations, Symbian. "We welcome EQO to the Symbian Platinum Partner Program and are delighted they recognise the greater functionality and performance that developing in native Symbian C++ brings to EQO consumers and to the ever-growing Symbian ecosystem."

By using EQO, Symbian smartphone users can now save up to 95% on international calls to landlines and mobile phones, and save up to 70% on international text messages. In addition, calls and texts exchanged between EQO users are free. Once the EQO application is downloaded, users can automatically import all of their existing contacts into their EQO phonebook. With EQO's presence feature, users are able to see which of their contacts are online and who is available for a call, to receive a text or have a chat using EQO's free IM feature.

EQO is already available on hundreds of device models and will be available as a native Symbian C++ client for S60 3rd Edition devices, including the popular Nokia N-Series and E-Series models.
