This one is a bit of a turnaround. After launching in January at CES as a VOIP competitor Raketu is now touting itself as a Social Network for BlackBerry with VOIP. I’m lost…
Here is how they describe their new service:
Raketu’s new BlackBerry Application is entirely web-based and does not require consumers to download any software. BlackBerry users can sign up and access the service via their BlackBerry web browser at http://BlackBerry.raketu.com. Using Raketu’s BlackBerry application, users can contribute blogs, bulletins, comments and interact in traditional social networking style or in real-time both inside and outside of the Raketu community. Raketu also provides the Raketu Media Drive, that allows users to store and share their user generated content — pictures, videos, etc. Users can make the content private or public, and can share with other Raketu users, or outside the Raketu community. See www.Raketu.com for details.
Sounds promising but after the pain I had with their last application I will probably not be trying this one. Let me know if you do.
