For a long time it has worked exclusively from one computer to another, eliminating interference phones, communicators and other technical stuff.

Then there were a lot of open source projects (eg, SIP), capable of be installed on phones, but not gained popularity due to the users. Not everyone given to understand the device are not so simple program.

However, smartphones, and phones – are two different things. Nokia's flagship line once again proves its advantage in the industry of mobile telephony, always keeping one step ahead of their competitors.
