Truphone unveils new Android app

Make free calls to other Truphone, Google Talk and Skype users

Truphone has unveiled a new app for mobile phones running Google's Android platform, that allows users to make voice over IP (VoIP) calls.

Truphone for Android 3.0 allows users to make free calls to other Truphone users, along with Google Talk and Skype members, when both parties have a Wi-Fi connection.

The app also intercepts calls to mobiles and international numbers and routes them over the internet, ensuring callers only pay local rather than premium rates.

Truphone says the app has a new-look interface and currently works with HTC G1, HTC Magic and HTC Hero, also available on the T-Mobile network under the name G2. Handsets running Android 1.5 and above will be supported soon.

"We are delighted to be able now to offer the full Truphone experience to Android device owners around the world", said Geraldine Wilson, CEO of Truphone.

The app can be downloaded for free from the Android Market.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
