PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/30/10 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Launching today in the App Store and Android Marketplace, Tango is a free, high-quality mobile video calling service that connects people around the world with family and friends from wherever they are. People can Tango on iPhones and Android phones over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. It's easy to use, it's fun, and it works.

Tango will transform the way people communicate every day, stay connected, and share special moments as they happen. Whether saying goodnight to your children while traveling on business, asking for advice from your best friend while shopping, or saying I love you to your girlfriend studying abroad, Tango for all your calls because you never know where the conversation will take you.

Tango empowers people to share what they see and to have fun with video calling whether at home or on-the-go. Tango offers high-quality video calling for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and Android devices including Motorola Droid X, HTC EVO, HTC Incredible, and Google Nexus One, and works with carrier phone and data plans, and on Wi-Fi networks.

"The idea for Tango evolved a year ago when I had a personal problem to solve - how to easily stay connected with family and friends who lived overseas," said Uri Raz, cofounder and CEO of Tango. "Today we are announcing free mobile video calling on iPhones and Android phones, and our vision is to allow anyone in the world to make free video calls on all of their Internet connected screens."

"Mobile video calling on 3G is a very difficult problem to solve with massive engineering requirements needed," said Eric Setton, cofounder and CTO of Tango. "We've built the best team in the world to solve this problem and are incredibly excited to make Tango available today on iPhone and Android. We believe mobile video calling should always be free for everyone so we've built a service that can scale to hundreds of millions of people with low infrastructure costs to make this a reality. We are focused on delivering the best product and consumer experience possible and can't wait to see how people Tango."

Tango features include:

   from wherever you are, to anyone across the globe!

 - Tango between iPhones and Android phones

 - It's easy to turn video on and off during a Tango call

 - Tango Contacts automatically populate from existing phone contact list

 - New profile not required - Tango in seconds

 - Swap the large and small screens to have a better view of what you're
   showing

   yourself and the friend you Tangoed, or just share what you see

The commonplace of smartphones and greatly improved networks has created a huge market opportunity for mobile video calling. There is more than 325 million smartphones already in use and more than 1 billion people worldwide are expected to be using smartphones by 2013. Considering the wireless voice market is expected to reach $1 trillion in the next two years, video calling will become a natural extension of the regular calling experience. Skype is a perfect example of this dynamic growth as 550 million people rack up billions of minutes of calls each month on its PC-based video product where 40 percent of people make video calls.

Tango is a free download in the App Store and Android Marketplace. You can Tango with anyone in your contact list that has downloaded the application to his or her phone.

But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
