Bobsled Calling for Tablets brings the free VoIP service to Honeycomb devices


If you have been looking for a good VoIP application to use with your tablet, this may be the one that hits the note. Bobsled (by T-Mobile and Vivox) has recently released a new Honeycomb optimized application, bringing all its services to the larger display.

For those that haven’t heard of it, Bobsled is a free VoIP service that uses Facebook as its backbone. You can make calls, leave voicemails and send messages. And if the user is not a Bobsled subscriber, everything gets re-directed to Facebook. But users will also get the messages or calls in their Android or iOS device, if available.

The application also allows users to call landlines and mobile phones in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Facebook won’t keep everything private. If the social network isn’t exactly deserving of your trust, you can still take advantage of regular calls. And Bobsled-to-Bobsled calls are also available with high-definition audio, making this app a bit more enticing.

If you want to check out how the service works with your tablet, simply head to the Google Play Store and try it. Are any of you current Bobsled users? What VoIP service do you prefer?

    I use the Chrome extension for Bobsled and it works great.  If I’m browsing the web and see a phone number I want to call I can one click a button on my browser and a dialer pops up where I can copy/paste the number and call it.  Really convenient.

    Just donwloaded it to give it a shot, works quite well.

    it seems they’re promoting this more as an app to make calls to other bobsled or facebook users…….. when the best reason to use this app is probably the ability to call mobile phones (real telephone numbers)……. I wonder how they keep it free?
