Truphone hits the Blackberry

Fresh from winning Gadgetfest last week, Truphone is now ready for the Blackberry (The OMmeister has the goss).

It’s most certainly beta. You don’t NEED to have a WiFi capable Blackberry — but I reckon it helps. Provided you’ve got the right version of the software, you should be Truphoning in record time by pointing your Blackberry to http://www.truphone.com/blackberry.

One point: If the Blackberry SIM has already been used for Truphone on ether Symbian or iPhone, then you will get a Customer Service message. Talk to them. They’ll sort it out…

  1. Truphone Anywhere, the application now released for the blackberry, is one of the features I use most often on my nokia E65. As most owners of smartphones have huge minute bundles anyway, the bundle is almost the same as the WiFi: The leg into the IP cloud is essentially free! (Voice quality and coolness factor on WiFi is much higher, though)

    90% of my phone bill used to be international calls, which truphone reduced by at least 90%, saving me hundreds of pounds monthly. Sure, I could have used Skype or other methods – but truth is: I did not want to change my normal behaviour of simply-dialing-from-the-address-book.

    A more holistic analysis can be found on our blog at http://www.straubventures.com (as we are not only fans, but also supporters of the business).
