Comwave ePhone has made its way to the BlackBerry PlayBook, after already being available for BlackBerry smartphones for quite some time now. It is in beta, but open for everyone to download free in App World. This is the first cellular capability we see come to the PlayBook so far. Here’s how it goes. You pay $20 a year and will get:
- Unlimited Free Incoming calls
- Your own phone number
- 250 Free Minutes per month for 12 months to call 57 countries. (3000 Minutes)
- No monthly fees….Just a one-time annual fee of $20.
For those who go over the 250 minutes, you’ll be billed “a low per minute rate” which seems to be undefined in the app description. So if you’re looking for phone capability on your PlayBook, Comwave ePhone is the way to go now. A 30 day free trial is available.
