New narrow bandwidth  VoIP phone  from Namzak Labs
Canadian Toronto located Company Namzak Labs Inc, created and led by CEO Dr. Rick Kazman (Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University) has released innovative telephony product: their first IP mobile phone "Arrowfone" running on Android versions 2.2 and 2.3.
This initial release of hardware is targeted specifically for the Japanese market. Namzak Labs' associated entity Namzak Japan Inc. based in Tokyo and established by CEO Daniel Fukumoto, has already started limited issue of beta versions of Arrowfone to the Japanese customers. Enterprise geographically has sales agreements with numerous distributors, such as Pacific Net, Art Telecom (Hikari Communication), and Namzak Mobile for IP phone services as an MVNO, using the DoCoMo network. The technological innovation of Arrowfone is its narrow bandwidth requirements—just taking operationally nearly 1/3 of Skype—in order to enable Namzak Japan to provide the cheapest cell phone rates in the country for both local and long-distance services. Arrowfone operates impeccably on 2.5G and 3.0G networks. With Arrowfone installed on an Android mobile phone, a customer is able to get connectivity to land lines or mobile phones into the North America, China, Europe and most other major countries from Tokyo for just 2 yen per minute and reported excellent sound quality. As declared by the Namzak Group, they will be providing full array of solutions (servers, clients, and connectivity), including IP Centrex services in Japan in September of 2011. These same services can, however, be deployed anywhere in the world. Corporate users have already express interest in using the Arrowfone Centrex for low cost, high quality VoIP. In live tests the quality of Arrowfone has proven to be excellent--far better than Skype--even in usage over long distances, such as highway driving or on the Shinkansen (bullet train) where there are many "handovers" from one cell site to another.
