Ooma Telo

Ooma is a VOIP provider that gives you free calling once you buy their hardware. Their next generation hardware is supposed to go on sale October 1st at Best Buy, but some Best Buy’s are already selling it. However, it can’t be activated until the 1st.

So far it appears that the Telo is currently being sold only as a base station. The handsets that are supposed to offer access to the Ooma premier features like multiple lines aren’t yet available. There are supposed to be some additional features like Bluetooth support that probably won’t be rolled out until later this year. It is possible that bluetooth will be an upgradable feature and not require additional hardware.

Ooma recently received $18 million in funding which should help lessen the biggest fear of using their service–that they will go out of business.
