Truphone’s Positive Experience as a BlackBerry 10 Developer Illustrates the Platform’s Programming Capabilities and Other Benefits

London, U.K. (May 1, 2012): Truphone today announced it’s developing a global roaming application based on RIM’s BlackBerry 10 platform. The new application will let BlackBerry 10 users make international calls and send text messages over Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE at rates up to 90 percent cheaper than mobile operator tariffs.

BlackBerry 10’s advanced APIs, new programming tools, intuitive programming environment and developer features are enabling Truphone to slash development time and create market-differentiating features. As a result, the new Truphone app will provide a superior user experience, including reliable, high-quality Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE calling and other over-the-top (OTT) services that take advantage of the BlackBerry 10 platform.
