Recently Vecosys mentioned social mobile network trends in 2007. The mobile trend continues as Truphone announces £12.5 million of venture capital funding. Truphone is creating quite a buzz, with a favorable mention on GigaOM. They got national UK TV coverage as a result.
So is this the start of a good year for the SIP industry, to offset Skype’s (non-SIP) dominance on the desktop? Or do you think Truphone is just another VoIP provider doomed to struggle for real revenue as some people have commented of Vonage or Skype?
I welcome your comments!
UPDATE: Om Malik thinks the investment is laced with a dash of irrationality.
