They Shoot! They Score!

No, we are not talking about the Vancouver Canucks. But in the style of our beloved home hockey team, CounterPath scored a hat trick with the Bria mobile softphone suite this week.

TMC, a global, integrated media group, recently announced the winners of the 2011 Internet Telephony Product of the Year Awards. Recipients of the 14th Annual Product of the Year Awards represent the year’s most innovative new products. Not only was CounterPath announced as one of the prestigious winners in this hotly contested technology arena, but we came out on top with wins for all three of our mobile applications: Bria Android, Bria iPad and Bria iPhone Editions.

CounterPath has won numerous awards in the past for our Bria and eyeBeam desktop softphones, but this was the first year we were eligible in the mobile application category. Hence, it was quite the accolade to learn that that all three products are being recognized. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY select companies who have demonstrated the vision, leadership, and thoroughness associated with the Product of the Year Award and only honors the most deserving companies with this esteemed award.

“I am happy to grant CounterPath with three Product of the Year Awards. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that Bria Android, iPad and iPhone Editions have all displayed quality and innovation plus address real needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate the entire team at CounterPath for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”

The award honor comes on the eve of launching video calling on our Bria iPhone Edition mobile softphone app.

      Hi Zafar. Thanks for your interest in our Bria softphones. Yes, Bria iPad Edition is designed exactly for that, so you can make calls using VoIP (Voice over IP), in other words, over the Internet. In order to use Bria iPad Edition, you must sign up for service from a VoIP service provider and then enter those settings into your Bria iPad Edition application. There is a list of approved service providers that you can choose from within the application (under Settings), or see them here: http://www.counterpath.com/itsp-certified.html Hope that helps.
