Kineto Enters Mobile VoIP Fray

Earlier in the week we learned that Tiscali is launching a Mobile VoIP client named WiPhone. Now we have Kineto, the company with the core technology behind UMA, releasing a Mobile VoIP client that they hope carriers will brand. Some, like Kevin Fritchard are postulating that the Kineto efforts, and those from Fring and Truphone are aimed at out Skyping Skype. I don't. I see this as an extension to what can be done to keep people more connected.

Research is showing that Mobile VoIP is a potentially lucrative sector for the carriers, both mobile and broadband based.

While true, I do believe that such companies have only one strategy - be bought and used by a carrier directly. Any other solution won't work as IMS will kill them eventually.
