Now this is cool… a National Geographic Phone!
National Geographic and Cellular Abroad have introduced the National Geographic Duet Travel Phone, designed specifically for the needs of the international traveler. The new handset supports two SIM cards and offers additional features useful for travelers, such as Bluetooth, a camera, FM radio, television and 1GB storage card. The Duet comes loaded with National Geographic content, including ringtones, wallpapers and travel-related videos from the National Geographic Channel.
The Duet includes National Geographic’s pay-as-you-go National Geographic Travel SIM card, allowing affordable calling in 185 countries, free incoming calls in more than 80 countries and 30 minutes of outgoing call credit (for most countries). Users have the option of inserting another SIM card in the phone and having a secondary number and service. This option is perfect for those who need to retain their current phone number while overseas or who want a secondary number dedicated for business or family. The service also offers 24/7 toll-free U.S.-based customer service directly from the handset via a three-digit access number.
The National Geographic Travel SIM card can be purchased separately from the Duet phone for those travelers who already own a cell phone that is compatible for international use.
“Our service offers comparable international coverage to carriers such as Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T, but at a fraction of the cost. In today’s economic environment, there is good reason to utilize National Geographic’s international cellular service when traveling,” said Sebastian Harrison, president of Cellular Abroad Inc. “The unique features of the new Duet handset perfectly complement the equally unique qualities of the service.”
