One of the newest innovations from Vocaltec Communications is the magicJack GO, which will provide consumers with all of the services of previous generations of the magicJack devices, with the freedom and convenience of the magicJack App.
The magicJack App currently has about 3.5 million active users, 60% of whom live in North America. This indicates that there is huge global use of the app, as more and more people are discovering its benefits.
The magicJack App users have primarily been drawn to the app through word of mouth, as the company has spent little on advertising the app (which is available for Apple and Android devices). However, the company plans to begin spending much more on advertising the app, which is likely to significantly increase its user base.
The magicJack GO will enhance the usability of the magicJack App, by combining the convenience and usefulness of the app with the stability that is provided by home and business phone service. The magicJack GO device will likely be extremely useful for entrepreneurs and small business owners, as it will provide many of the same features of a business phone plan at a fraction of the cost.
The magicJack GO will feature a simplified design, and easier to use Quick Start guide (in both English and Spanish), and new packaging.
The magicJack GO will include numerous features that have been included on the magicJack PLUS and magicJack 2014. Some of these features include:
- Free conference calling for families and businesses
- Free magicJack-to-magicJack calls (as with other magicJack devices)
- A single number to reach the magicJack GO device, or the user’s mobile phone
- Improved voice and call quality over what is already considered one of the best call qualities in the business (enhanced call quality will also be incorporated into the magicJack PLUS and magicJack 2014)
- More streamlined upgrade options (for purchasing additional services or international calling credits on a credit-based system that utilizes pay-per-use)
- Messaging services
Vocaltec has been working vigorously over the last several months to help make the magicJack GO one of the best values on the VoIP market. For the time being, the product is being sold at $59.95 for the device, its necessary components, and one full year of service.
Additional years of service for the magicJack GO device will be sold for $35 (less than $2.92 per month). For users who wish to do so, six months of service can also be purchased for $20 ($3.33 per month).
This price point (especially with a full year of service included) is one that is likely to appeal to a much larger constituent than the $49.95 price of the magicJack 2014 that included six months of service).
Where Can You Buy magicJack GO?
The magicJack GO will be available from a variety of large retail stores across North America. Wal-Mart, Radioshack, and Best Buy plan to begin selling the device as soon as it is available.
Vocaltec has also been working to sell the magicJack GO device throughout Latin America and Asia.
When Will the magicJack GO Be Available?
Hundreds of thousands of units of the magicJack GO have already been ordered by the large retailers listed above. However, the device is anticipated to be available for purchase in late June to mid-July.
