Call Free From PlayStation 3

JAJAH Brings Free and Low Cost Global Phone Calls to the PlayStation 3 System

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- JAJAH, the innovative web-based calling company, has brought its solution to the Sony Computer Entertainment PlayStation 3 system, allowing gamers to initiate free or ultra-low cost global phone calls directly from their game console.

The technology allows users to talk to other gamers around the world on their regular phones. To use JAJAH, you simply register at play.jajah.com. Registration is free, confidential and fast.

"JAJAH's vision is to bring free and ultra low cost calls to people everywhere," said Roman Scharf, JAJAH co-founder. "Introducing JAJAH to gamers is another way of bringing that vision to life."

Launched only one year ago, JAJAH already has more than 2 million registered users in more than 55 countries.

This is how it works: Users with Internet access enter play.jajah.com on their PS3 Internet browser. They will then see an easy-to-use interface, where they enter their own phone number as well as the phone number of the person they are calling. By clicking the "Call" button, JAJAH initiates the call. In seconds, your normal phone (landline or mobile) will ring. At the same time, your friend's phone will ring. You both answer and talk.

JAJAH for gamers works very much like the original JAJAH web-based solution, but it has been optimized for the PlayStation 3 system. Existing JAJAH users who go to play.jajah.com will see their JAJAH address book, their account information, and a new game-friendly design and UI.

"JAJAH now brings free or cheap calling into the living room and away from computers," said Scharf. "Initiating a call with JAJAH can now be done while lounging in front of the TV with no need to fire up the computer. This means that the whole family, regardless of interests or technological skills, can make cheap or even free calls from their normal home phone."

A call with JAJAH is free between registered JAJAH users in most countries. In countries where it's not free, the calls are ultra-low cost.
