Tovo t450g - WiFi VOIP & GSM

 Tovo t450g Available now
15th November 2006

The Tovo t450g is a hybrid WiFi VOIP / GSM handset, that can work either on a standard mobile network or by using Voice-Over-IP on a suitable wireless ethernet connection.

We first saw the Tovo t450g in the spring as the Pirelli Discus DualPhone DP L10, and in terms of the handset itself, the Tovo t450g is identical to the DualPhone.

As far as its GSM capabilities are concerned, the Tovo t450g is a basic but practical device with a 128x128 pixel display, 0.3 megapixel (VGA resolution) camera, tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 support and GPRS. There's also MMS, SMS and email message capabilities plus some PIM functionality.

Of course, this is really a VOIP handset, and the Tovo t450g has 802.11g wireless ethernet supporting WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption. As a GSM phone, the t450g is a bit basic, but it's pretty advanced for a VOIP device and it manages to do both GSM and VOIP in a device weighing only 95 grams.

Businesses can centrally manage Tovo t450g devices, or it can simply be used as a consumer device. Several different t450g handset can be used on the same wireless network. Larger customers can use a virtual PABX solution to roll out multiple Tovo devices seamlessly (using the back-end technology provided by Pirelli), but one drawback for individual consumers is that the Tovo will have both a standard GSM number and a VOIP number, so it's not quite so seamless.

In the UK, the Tovo t450g forms part of the of Mobiboo range of VOIP solutions, offering the usual range of dial-in and dial-out functionality that you might find with a bigger name such as Skype. The t450g will work on a variety of home and business WiFi systems, plus public hotspots from The Cloud and looseconnection. Mobiboo say that there are nearly 7000 public access points at present that can be used with the Tovo system in the UK, plus any other publicly available hotspots.

Mobiboo also offer a couple of non-GSM WiFi VOIP handsets, either directly or through specialist retailers (including some branches of Tesco). The Tovo t450g currently costs around 170 directly from the Tovo web site.
