During BlackBerry World 2012, Truphone 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.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Adam Linford, Truphone’s Head of Labs and Mobile Applications. At BlackBerry World 2012, Adam said “RIM has got it right with the BlackBerry 10 platform. The platform’s support for open-source components flattens the learning curve enabling us to build a new application quickly and cost-effectively and have it ready to go when the first BlackBerry 10 devices debut.” Check out the interview below.
