Voip-Pal.Com Inc. Responds to Recent Android Virus Threat With Upcoming Edition of New Antivirus Program for Its New Android App for Smartphones

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - March 4, 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 final stage in marketing its new Antivirus Program available specifically for the Android smartphones. Its reciprocal product, the PointsPhone Mobile™ Android App, has been posted and ready for free downloading on the Android Market App Store. The new Antivirus Program has been designed specifically to guard the Android smartphone against spyware and viruses, and will be bundled as a suite with the PointsPhone Mobile™ Android App. The announcement and retail price for this suite is forthcoming. 

"Android is on a pace to out sell its competitors five to one," states Dennis Chang, President of Voip-Pal. "Motorola has just announced its latest product, the Motorola A TRIX™ 4G, claiming to be the world's most powerful smartphone, and perhaps taking over the mantel from Samsung's Galaxy S 4G. Both rely on the Android OS platform. However, there's a lot more at stake now with the recent news that Android has pulled more than 50 apps from its Market Store due to the discovery of malware that may prove to compromise the security of Android smartphones. The timing of this new addition of a forthcoming PointsPhone Antivirus Program couldn't have come at a better moment. The final stage of delivery, which is the Point of Sales and Marketing, is soon to be finished and we can soon offer our comprehensive Antivirus Program which will be included with the purchase of the PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite. 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 Antivirus Program for the Android is truly comprehensive, providing automatic real-time protection for all Android smartphones 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. A One Year subscription will be included with the PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite. Also included in the Suite, will be substantial domestic and international airtime minutes, the PointsPhone Mobile™ Android App with our latest Voice Mail features, and a free US DID (virtual) number.

"Our PointsPhone Mobile™ Android App is proving to be a quality product," says Mukesh (Mike) Mohanbhai, Voip-Pal's Chief Technical Officer. "Its sister product, the PointsPhone Antivirus Program, has now been turned over to the marketing department and our website masters to properly incorporate the product as part of our PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite. When a customer can receive a state-of-art antivirus program already included when they purchase airtime minutes, it makes it a 'no brainer,' as far as I am concerned. Especially when you consider it can cost the consumer over $30 for a similar stand-alone product without airtime minutes."

The PointsPhone Mobile™ Android App is available immediately for free downloading on your Android at the Android Market App Store (search "pointsphone"). User must register by signing up on www.pointsphone.com . The PointsPhone Platinum™ Suite will be sold on the website within the next coming weeks. Check for upcoming Announcements.
