Mobile applications seem to be a bit of a theme this year and Newber is joining the fray with the launch of it’s location aware business number service.
The aim is to move away from dependence on a mobile by routing the calls to the nearest landline near you. It adds a second phone number to your iPhone – calls to that number go either to the mobile or a landline near your current position, depending on your preferences.
It uses the GPS in the iPhone to work out where you are and routes the call appropriately.
Versions for Palm, Blackberry and windows mobile are in the works and it will be available in the app store “soon”.
