Ribbit Web Telephone Development Platform

 6:47 pm on Dec 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

Silicon Valley start-up Ribbit on Monday unveiled a technology platform that will let developers put Web telephony in everything from business software to popular social network sites such as Facebook.

As well as planning to sell its own services directly to consumers in the first quarter, Ribbit said it is working with more than 600 outside developers who are using its technology to create their own voice applications.

Ribbit software serves as an interface between anything from Web sites, e-mail and instant messaging to mobile or regular phones. Developers do not need to be telephony experts to build services with Adobe's Flash software, which works on most computers.

Shown at Demo this week, and a very interesting demonstration of how the platform works and what the capabilities are:-

My only question...

Who is going to buy them first? Will it be Google? Yahoo!? Microsoft? And, what's the selling price? A billion or two?

Based on my experience, Google doesn't want that type of technology out there without their name on it.

All of the names you mention would be in the frame and the business model is obviously that exit route.

They were at Demo this week hunting for additional finance ($13m in so far).
