fg microtec Promises to Enable Real VoIP for BlackBerrys in May

When pigs fly… Call me skeptical but who knows this might actually prove to be true. fg microtec put out a press release promising to release a SDK (Software Development Kit) which will allow developers to create true VoIP applications. They claim that their new fgVoIP Engine SDK will allow for full high quality duplex (not walkie talkie) VoIP without relying on your voice connection. I am not sure how they will pull this off when many others have failed but I am rooting for them. You can check out a video of the app in action below:

They plan on releasing the fgVoIP Engine SDK to developers in early May so we wont have to wait long. The SDK will include:

  • fgVoIP Engine as a Java library
  • Documentation
  • Sample code in Java

fg microtec Enables Real VoIP for BlackBerry® Application Developers

fgVoIP Engine from fg microtec is the first Software Development Kit to enable full duplex, real-time voice on BlackBerry® smartphones with absolutely no GSM interaction

Munich (PRWEB) April 20, 2010 — fg microtec, the leading provider of enterprise unified telephony applications for mobile phones, today announced the availability of the fgVoIP Engine, which enables BlackBerry® developers, for the first time, to integrate a third party VoIP technology with high-quality full duplex media processing capabilities into applications they build for the BlackBerry® platform.

fg microtec offers the fgVoIP Engine as a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the BlackBerry® platform. Through the fgVoIP Engine, developers will solve the major challenge of adding full duplex (sending and receiving) real-time voice to a BlackBerry® smartphone.

The SDK includes:

  • fgVoIP Engine as a Java library
  • Documentation
  • Sample code in Java

fg microtec is providing the fgVoIP Engine to companies developing real-time applications for the BlackBerry® platform such as telephony and UC clients, as well as organizations interested in implementing VoIP on BlackBerry® devices.

"VoIP on BlackBerry® smartphones has been both a challenge and a market requirement for quite some time now. Indeed, in some cases, companies have tried to crack this problem for years without success,” said Robert Mirbaha, fg microtec’s CEO. “We believe that through our new fgVoIP Engine, BlackBerry® developers will now be able to bring their VoIP-enabled applications to the market in less time, and enable more BlackBerry® smartphone users to benefit from the low call cost advantages of VoIP."

fg microtec has 10 years of mobile application development experience, specifically in real-time applications such as VoIP. The company’s VoIP technology has been in the marketplace since 2006 and allows high-quality, reliable full duplex voice encoding and decoding with low delay, suitable for VoIP applications. fg microtec has developed VoIP technologies and VoIP clients for Symbian, Windows Mobile, iPhone and the BlackBerry® platform.

The fgVoIP Engine SDK will be available in early May. For licensing, pricing and further information, please contact us at

  1. This should be interesting IF they have a SIP client….

  2. “We believe that through our new fgVoIP Engine” kinda says to ME at least that they haven’t really worked it all out. We’ll see.
