A new Wi-Fi mobile portal launched this week offering text messages at up to 85% cheaper compared with standard network rates, and free mobile phone services.
WeROK, a joint venture between mobile app business ROK Entertainment and global Wi-Fi network WeFi, offers a range of mobile services, including low-cost SMS, mobile email, free mobile TV, and mobile social networking.
WeROK’s Internet connection is powered by WeFi, a community driven global WiFi service that automatically connects to the best available free WiFi network.
Over 20 million Wi-Fi networks are currently available to WeFi users.
Jonathan Kendrick, chairman and CEO of ROK Entertainment, said: “WeROK is a unique development and a giant leap forward in mobile and web convergence.
“It’s an advertising-funded mobile services application which enables handsets to automatically and seamlessly access Wi-Fi zones in order to route mobile activities via the Internet.”
Zur Feldman, WeFi CEO, added: “WeFi is thrilled to be working with ROK Entertainment.
“WeROK enables users to enhance their mobile entertainment and communication activities, all the time utilizing a PC-like Internet experience over a mobile phone.”
WeROK is available for free download from www.werok.net.
Currently, it’s only compatible with Wi-Fi enabled Symbian S60 mobile phones, i.e. Nokia’s E-series and N-series handsets.
