Voice 3.0 goes mobile: Phono Mobile debuts

Phono, by Voxeo Labs, is a simple jQuery plugin and JavaScript library that turns any web browser into a phone, capable of making phone calls and sending instant messages. Phonegap is an HTML 5 framework that lets any web based application become a mobile application, for virtually any modern mobile device – Windows Phone, Android, iOS, Blackberry, and so on.

Pair the two of them together and what do you get?  An HTML 5 based mobile voice development platform.  And that’s what they announced this morning.

I like it.  A lot.

  1. It lets web developers become mobile developers using tools that many people already know and understand.
  2. It gives mobile voice developers a single framework to target, and hopefully a single codebase to develop for.

Both of those advantages add up to reduced time to market, reduced investment, greater profits.  And for customers, they might mean many more innovative uses for voice in mobile.

Nice job!
