Ooma today announced new features for its Telo Voip phone system.

The new additions include Ooma Pure Voice, High Definition Voice, mobile phone calling with the iPhone or iPod touch, Bluetooth support, Google Voice Extensions and voicemail transcription.

Pure Voice ensures clear conversations over congested networks while maintaining low-bandwidth requirements, while HD Voice doubles the phone’s audio frequency range for more natural sounding calls between Ooma customers.

The downloadable iPhone / iPod Touch application enables calls over any Wi-Fi network using an iPhone or iPod touch.

Bluetooth support on the Ooma Telo allows users to integrate their mobile phone with their home phone systems, by pairing compatible, Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones with the Ooma Telo base. This enables inbound calls to the mobile phone to be answered on any home phone connected to the Ooma Telo. Users may also pair compatible Bluetooth headsets to the Ooma Telo for hands-free talking from anywhere in the home. Finally, Bluetooth support will allow users to download their phone book from their mobile devices for use on the Ooma Telo Handset and online at My Ooma.

Google Voice Extensions allow Google Voice users to integrate the Call Presentation, Listen In, and caller-ID features with their Ooma system as well as access Google Voice voicemail at a touch of a button.

Finally, Ooma customers can have inbound voicemail transcribed into text and sent as an email or text message.

All features will be available to Ooma Telo customers in the first half of 2010. Pricing for the new features was not announced.
