On July 30, KT announced that KT launched a SoIP Video Phone. SoIP means ‘Service of IP’. SoIP usually includes VoIP service and other IP-based services. SoIP video phone allowed customers to use a high-quality video call. Since last year, KTF and SKT have provided mobile video call on HSDPA network. However, mobile video call is made on 2 inch display of mobile handset. KT provided the SoIP phone having 4.3 inch display and wide QVGA resolutions. In addition, although mobile handset provides low-quality picture with 5 to 15 frames, the SoIP provides high-quality picture with 24 frames. KT’s SoIP phone also provides some value added services such as internet banking.
