Truphone Brings Wi-Fi Calling To Android Devices

truphone_logo.jpgTruphone announces the immediate free availability of its new application for Android enabled mobile handsets, introducing Wi-Fi calling on this platform for the first time.

The new Truphone for Android release 3.0 integrates a full VoIP engine allowing users to make free calls to Truphone, Google Talk and Skype users when both parties are in Wi-Fi, in addition to low cost calls to landlines and mobiles around the world whether they are in or out of Wi-Fi. This, coupled with a new, refreshed interface makes this the application of choice for the user who wants top quality user experience from their mobile VoIP application. The new release version 3.0 replaces the current live version 2.0.

The Truphone application for Android is available now as a free download in the Android Market. The new Truphone Android application is compatible with the HTC G1, HTC Magic and HTC Hero. Compatibility with other Android models with firmware 1.5 or above, including the Motorola Droid and the Nexus One will follow soon.

Truphone's Android application also includes fully integrated multi-headed Instant Messaging support for Skype, Google Talk, AIM, Yahoo! and MSN customers, allowing users to easily switch between different conversations and keep in touch with their friends whichever IM service they use.

The application builds on the company's previous release which allowed customers to make low cost calls on their mobiles when out of Wi-Fi. When out of Wi-Fi, the application works by making a local GSM call to the Truphone gateway (if a customer has a bundled package of minutes this call is often free, otherwise is charged as a 'local call'*), from where the call is then routed over the Truphone network.
