Mazingo's Voyager Smartphone has also received a number of large scale contracts, review www.wcai.com — Press Releases section:- Capital Group and Aperto announcement (Arab Telecom are placing orders for Mazingo voyager handsets), and a UAE based telecoms group has also recently placed a $35M order. Mazingo's advanced User Interface takes the pain out of fast switching between VoIP and GSM calls and the users always remain in total control of their network selection so they control their calling costs especially when 'Roaming' out of their 'home' country, where the costs to receive and make outbound GSM calls are usually extremely expensive. Mazingo's Voyager smartphone works on all SIP based VoIP Networks."
