Vopium let me know about a new Mobile VOIP application that they just released. Sadly it is not true Voip over data or anything but it does make calling international a bit cheaper. Not sure how its prices compare to other mobile VOIP services but it may be worth checking out if you are interested in cheaper international calls on your Berry.
Just so you understand why this is not true VOIP. When you make an international call, Vopium re-routes your call as a local call. You pay your mobile provider for a local call and Vopium for the international call.
From the description:
Vopium, an emerging MVoIP now becomes available on Blackberry where it provides you the benefit to enjoy VoIP calls absolutely on the go. Vopium is available for BlackBerry Pearl, Curve and the BlackBerry 8800 series. Blackberry users can now obtain great cost saving facility on international calls.
