Truphone releases free software that allows Wi-Fi-equipped Nokia phones to make cheap calls over The Cloud hotspots: It’s a lot of pieces to put together, but this is part of the overall authentication puzzle—how does a phone log into a network? Truphone has connected the phone (Nokia models E60, E61, and E70), the medium (Wi-Fi), and the network (The Cloud) to offer offer calling at about a 3 pence per minute surcharge over their cellular rates. During a promotion that lasts until Mar. 31, 2007, the base charge for their cell calls to most of the industrialized world’s landlines is £0.00; U.S. cell phones are included in that deal.
The Cloud has 7,500 hotspots in the UK, and is building several city center hotzones.

I am using ((truphone)) since 90 days and have made 80 hours of phone calls. The basic conclusion is the following, using dual GSM/WiFi mobile handsets are a dream come true. One phone book, automatic login at home and the office with the truWizard and large savings, better call quality than GSM or 3G at home. Overall a very compelling offering. ((truphone)) will go a long way. This beats Skype by a lot!
