National Geographic Makes Global Cell Phone Affordable

National Geographic Makes Global Cell Phone Affordable


If you’re a reporter for National Geographic, there’s a good chance that you’ll be surveying the African savannah one day, the Himalayan Mountains the next, and the Australian outback the day after that. It’s a vast world and it’s difficult to stay connected when you find yourself continent-hopping. It can also be terribly expensive.

That’s why National Geographic has just designed the Talk Abroad Travel Phone, a handset that is capable of taking and making affordable calls in over 100 countries. Apparently usable right out of the box, this phone is catering to the average Joe, including everyone from international students to vacationers and business travelers.

The phone will be available next month with no contract and free incoming calls “in most international markets.”
