Picture this, a single BlackBerry smartphone equipped with a single SIM card yet able to operate in different parts of the world at local rates... sounds good, no? Actually, it sounds too good to be Tru - I mean true. Pardon for that. But it is an astounding yes, the seemingly impossible in all its entirety has now become possible through Tru, formerly known as Truphone. The mobile communications operator that focuses on Internet telephony and filling the void for the people of international lifestyle, Tru has now upped the ante by adding BlackBerry smartphones to its line up of global products.
Most definitely a relief to a great amount of businesses, a BlackBerry smartphone connected to the Tru network will provide hard working corporate people three (or more) numbers for use with contacts abroad. Be it a client in the States, UK or Australia, Tru has you covered. As far as mobile data connectivity goes, Tru offers its customers the option to go for BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Internet Service - or both. And with the possibility to enjoy local rates across the Tru network, customers need not to think of footing the bill for high international call charges; Tru does the rest.
Geraldine Wilson, CEO of Tru, stated: "BlackBerry smartphones are the most popular business devices available and we are thrilled to offer our customers the option to use Tru on their handset of choice. Our mission is to help businesses around the world to thrive, and remove the pain of high roaming charges costing businesses a fortune. With our business tariffs you can save over 80% within the Tru network, and between 30 and 60% when you also travel throughout 30 countries in Europe."
Coming next to the Tru network circle are Spain, the Netherlands and Hong Kong. Coming soon, on the other hand, are France, Italy and Germany. The first global mobile network is starting to look very promising and promises to have its products and services available in over 20 countries within the next 18 months. Wow.
