CloudPhone is a new a software platform from Movirtu that lets you make and receive calls over Wi-Fi networks using the company's mobile phone numbers on tablets and laptops without a regular SIM card.

The company says users will benefit from its white label CloudPhone solution by having reduced roaming costs and more mobile devices (it works on tablets or laptops) to phone from. 

More connectivity options fits with the needs of today's mobile workforce, said Richard Absalom, senior analyst with Ovum’s Enterprise Mobility and Productivity practice.
