Here I am, still ruminating over whether or not I should cave and get an iPhone at Canada’s exorbitant rates, when I get wind of this news: telephony company, Truphone has unveiled a FREE (2nd Gen) iPod touch version of its VoIP app. All I would need is a set of those earbuds with the built-in microphone like the ones they sell at Apple Stores for the iPhone, and I could make voice calls over WiFi.
The app is free, calls to other Truphone users are free as are calls to Google Talk users.
Is this going to stop me from getting an iPhone? Probably not. Most places that I can get free wifi (my house, my job, etc.), I also have access to a phone. I don’t think this application is going to lose Apple any iPhone sales, but it might sell a few more iPod touches to people would never have bought either device before.[ Via TechCrunch ]
