We were introduced to a nice little treat upon our return from lunch today: Vonage is coming out with an Android app. Initially, only AT&T and T-Mobile customers will be able to use the VoIP provider’s app, but there’s no word on the two CDMA national carriers in the states (their site just tells us that Vonage isn’t compatible). Michael Tempora, the senior vice president of product management, chimed in to adorn this announcement with his own tidbit:


We are focused on ensuring that our customers can enjoy all the benefits of their Vonage service from any location using any device that can access the Internet. We will continue to expand our offerings in 2010 to include a robust set of voice and messaging services that utilize Wi-Fi and 3G wireless networks.

For those of you scarred by Skype’s exclusivity on Verizon recently this may be your best alternative now (and it isn’t a bad one, to boot). Their site only lists the Nexus One as a compatible device, but I had no problems finding the app in the Android market using my T-Mobile G1. Head over there to see more information about the service and, if you’re a Vonage user, be sure to let us know how it fairs against other popular VoIP solutions such as Skype.
