Is The National Geographic Duet Travel Phone Worth A Look?
Long distance calls while on the road can result in a severe case of sticker shock when the bill arrives a month or so later. There are several ways to get around this and the new Duet Phone from National Geographic is one of those options. Depending on how much you travel may determine weather the phones savings on long distance calls overrides what may be given up in other features.
Introducing the new National Geographic Duet Travel Phone model D888. It features a pay-as-you-go SIM card that allows you to make calls from 185 countries and receive free calls in around 80 countries. It will also handle a secondary SIM card if you have one, which will allow you to receive calls to your normal phone number. Then there’s bluetooth, TV, FM radio, a camera, and preloaded content from National Geographic. I would assume that includes maps and travel guides. The phone costs $199.Source: mentalfloss.com
