The National Geographic Society will attempt market its new Talk Abroad™ Travel Phone this month. The unlocked Quad band GSM cell phone is said to be reliable and affordable. Calls can be made in over 100 countries around the world (including the US and Canada) while maintaining one personal cellular number. Since this is a prepaid solution, there are no contracts to sign or monthly bills.
I am no expert of cellular telephony, but I comfortably predict this phone will provide no competition to the Blackberries, Nokias and iPhones, in spite of the NGS logo.
