TMCNet:  Truphone Releases Truphone App for BlackBerry 10

Truphone Releases Truphone App for BlackBerry 10

Feb 04, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Truphone announced a new BlackBerry (News - Alert) 10 version of its Truphone App, enabling users to save up to 90 percent on international voice calls while enjoying enhanced audio quality.

In a release, the Company noted that available for use wherever Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G are available, Tru App 5.0 brings all the features of Truphone's (News - Alert) mobile VoIP applications to BlackBerry devices.

'Voice technologies in mobile continue to mature and companies like Truphone continue to find ways to innovate on the BlackBerry 10 platform. This is the best time for developers to take advantage of the wide array of tools for the BlackBerry platform and to be among the first crop of applications available to BlackBerry 10 customers,' said Alec Saunders (News - Alert), Vice President, Developer Relations and Ecosystems at Research In Motion. 'By leveraging the open nature of the BlackBerry 10 platform and the breadth of API support we have, Truphone is now able to offer enterprises and BlackBerry customers VoIP solutions that will enhance communications immensely.' 'Before BlackBerry10, RIM's operating systems limited developers by not providing the right APIs or restricting access to the Wi-Fi stack,' said Truphone CTO James Tagg (News - Alert). 'Those limitations made it impossible for Truphone to offer BlackBerry users the same functionality we make available on other operating systems. BlackBerry 10 provides a far more developer-friendly environment, including functionality that enables Truphone to deliver its improved user experience to BlackBerry 10 smartphones and tablet users.' Truphone is a mobile communications company.
