Truphone launches low priced international call service for BlackBerry

Global mobile network operator Truphone has launched a beta of its mobile internet telephony service, Truphone Anywhere, for BlackBerry smartphones. Truphone Anywhere brings simple, easy and cheap international calling to up to 40 million BlackBerry users across the world.
Truphone Anywhere works in 33 countries worldwide. It saves BlackBerry users from those countries money on the international calls they make from their home country. The service works alongside domestic service providers, but reduces international call costs to as little as £0.03/$0.06 per minute.
Instead of requiring the user to remember what to do, Truphone Anywhere simply asks whether the user wants to make a Truphone call whenever an international number is dialled. The user simply accepts, and Truphone connects the call.
Geraldine Wilson, new CEO at Truphone, stated: “There’s no GSM business tariff that gets close to the prices we can offer BlackBerry users with Truphone for international calling. And in these days of financial belt-tightening, businesses are looking at every means of cutting costs, which is an opportunity for us. Truphone is a genuine alternative carrier for international calls, with the potential to reduce annual mobile bills for the largest companies by many millions of dollars.”
