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.
“Truphone’s BlackBerry 10 application will be the product of two things: Our leadership in being first to market on new platforms, and RIM’s visionary approach in developing a platform that’s developer-friendly,” Adam Linford of Tru Labs said. “Our new BlackBerry solution will debut at a time when Wi-Fi offloading and other OTT services begin to reach the tipping point to become the business traveler’s must-have options for reliable, global and cost-effective communications.”
Tru also talked up the ease of developing apps for the BlackBerry 10 platform, citing that RIM has “got it right” with BlackBerry 10. Tru plans to have its app ready for launch when the first BlackBerry 10 devices arrive the second half of 2012.
With BlackBerry World currently underway, we’re bound to hear more on the Tru App and its features. Stay tuned.
