Microsoft buys Internet calling firm

Posted on Thursday, Sep 01 2005 @ 00:43 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft has just bought an Internet start-up called Telo, which specialised in VoIP applications. It's believed Microsoft will use this new acquisition to bring new Internet calling options to MSN Messenger.
Microsoft has its eyes set on something more like Net phone company Skype's service, however. A key part of Teleo's technology is focused on making calls from a computer to an ordinary telephone, a feature that company executives said would start finding its way into MSN Messenger before the end of 2005.
