MagicJack femtocell to be sold with a mobile partner

We have talked about the MagicJack VoiP dongle on more than a few occasions around here. The company has merged with VoIP company VocalTec Communications and the newly merged companies are set to offer an interesting new product soon.

MagicJack will launch its femtocell product this year that will work with any mobile phone. We have heard about this femtocell before. What we didn’t know was that rather than selling the femtocell product alone, the device would be marketed with a wireless carrier.

Exactly which wireless carrier will be used is unknown, but odds are it won’t be AT&T or Verizon but one of the smaller carriers and my money is on a pre-paid carrier. MagicJack apps for the iPad, Android, and Blackberry devices are still in the works and a new softphone service will land in the next month or so from MagicJack to compete with Skype and the offering will be global.
