Today Truphone announced a new service that is aimed at frequent world travelers. The new service, which will initially work in the U.S. and the U.K., will give users a local number to use no matter which country they happen to be in. Truphone says the application will provide local calling rates in countries where Truphone is active; local calling numbers; and low-cost international calling and roaming (when not in Truphone countries).
