Truphone flattens the earth!

It's official Truphone has cut rates in half to $12.95 month for it's Truphone Unlimited app service. Basically this turns my iPad 3G/WIFI into a heavy duty business machine writing reports, scheduling, e-mail, and now very low-cost phone. I don't know how they do it, but they must have been reading Thomas Freedman and realized that the world is flat, and have passed it along to the rest of us.

I'm a behavioral health professional living and working in Maine specializing in psychiatric rehabilitation. For years I've utilized mobile technology to improve the delivery of community based mental health services, and embraced the iPhone when it came out in 2007.

I am also a doctoral candidate at Franklin Pierce University where I have been researching the role of the Liberal Arts in American higher education.

I write as a guest for iPhone Life periodically with a special interest in helping other professionals (healthcare, education and government in particular) incorporate iOS devices into their work, and several years ago introduced the first iPhone and eventually iPad classes at Lewiston Adult Education in Lewiston Maine concentrating on helping other professionals interested in using and incorporating iPads into their work.
