Voip-Pal.Com Inc. Announces the Launch of Its New PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite Which Includes an Antivirus Program for North America Android Users

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - Voip-Pal.Com Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPLM) is a provider of international calls using VoIP technology on the internet and smart cell phones. Voip-Pal's goal is to provide a quality, reliable, cost-effective and safe solution for the casual and business international traveler who must rely on their smartphones to communicate.

Voip-Pal.Com Inc. ("Voip-Pal") announces the availability for North America Android users of its PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite package which bundles an Antivirus Program. The Antivirus Program has been designed specifically to guard smartphones against spyware, malware and viruses.

"Having a virus protection program for your desktop or laptop PC is now common-place," states Dennis Chang, President of Voip-Pal, "with 90 percent of PC users using some kind of antivirus program. And yet, less than 10 percent of current smartphone users are using antivirus programs. Most smartphone users are unaware of the virus threat and those who are aware don't know what to do about it. Smartphone sales are outpacing sales of PCs. Smartphones are now taking over the world computer marketplace. Unlike our PCs, we carry our smartphones with us everywhere, and because of sensitive financial and personal information stored on our smartphones, smartphones are a gold mine for cyber criminals. Security protection is probably THE most important App to download for any smartphone.

"When a customer can receive a state-of-art antivirus program already included when they purchase airtime minutes, a decision to purchase our Platinum Suite is straightforward. Especially when you consider it can cost the consumer over $30 for a similar stand-alone product without airtime minutes. The airtime minutes are worth it by itself. The customer will save on ridiculous roaming charges and our rates are extremely competitive with everyone else out there, including Skype™."

The PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite is now available in North America only for all Google Android smartphones, including the new high-performing Motorola ATRIX™ and Samsung's Galaxy 4G™. The Platinum Suite will include a one year subscription to a state-of-art antivirus program, substantial domestic and international airtime minutes, enhanced Voice Mail features and a free North America phone number. The antivirus program is truly comprehensive, providing automatic real-time protection against viruses, spyware and other malware. Memory cards are automatically scanned when they are inserted to prevent transfer of malware and viruses. A GPS locating system is available to track down lost or stolen smartphones. A Remote Backup feature is available to backup all data stored on the smartphone in case the smartphone is lost or stolen.

"Smartphone users should be aware of four basic types of threats from viruses on smartphones," says Mukesh (Mike) Mohanbhai, Chief Technical Officer (CTO). "The first is called Advanced Mobile Malware which attacks mobile users' bank accounts and steals their logins and passwords. The second threat is called Converged Messaging Spam which prompts users to reply to a SMS messaging spam and charges them extremely high per minute rates. The third is called IP Reputation which imbeds malicious malware in SMS and email spam. The fourth type is a Credit Attack which are messages prompting users to call back and incur an extremely high per minute billing rate. In addition to these basic types of threats, there are harmful spyware and new generation viruses that criminals are developing to access the financial and personal data on smartphones. We must always be one step ahead of the cyber criminals.

"We are proud to announce the PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite for the Android as our Vanguard product," adds Mr. Mohanbhai. "Our technical team is working around the clock to finish development of the Platinum Suite for the iPhone, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows Phone platforms, and working on extending our Platinum Suite service to international Android users. We are also improving the Point of Sales process for the Platinum Suite to make it easier for our users to download and use all of our services."

The PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite is available in North America only for Google Android smartphones on our retail website www.pointsphone.com. Users will register and purchase a Platinum Suite for $29.95. A User account and password will be created and users will have immediate access to their account for airtime minutes, Voice Mail and virtual phone numbers. A registration number for their Antivirus Program will be sent as a text message to their smartphone which will provide access to download their Antivirus Program within 48 hours (to complete fraud check). A free North America Phone Number is allocated. The PointsPhone Mobile™ App for the Android is downloaded free from the Android Market App Store (search 'pointsphone').
