Truphone dials Google Talk

Truphone today announced that it has added support for Google Talk. The new feature enables mobile users to call their friends on a pc and vice versa. All these calls are for free! Truphone has yet to add presence for the Google Talk contacts on your mobile.

Fring and Nimbuzz already support calling to Google Talk and Skype users. As always, all updates get added to the dynamic Mobile VoIP cheatsheet.

On the other hand, it seems that SIPphone/Gizmo is struggling to define direction and gain traction with users. SIPphone is now giving the web-based Gizmocall users 5 minutes of FREE calling per day without registering, or 10 minutes per day when they register. Even Mino is giving some rebates for its mobile service. I am not sure what will be the shelf life for the half-way technologies like Jajah, or Mino, or Gizmocall, when Fring, Nimbuzz, and Truphone are rapidly expanding their feature set and device coverage, and enable unlimited-time calls for free.

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know
    how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!
