As a rugged travel phone, the National Geographic Xplorer will appeal to certain CDMA phone owners, provided they plan to use the cell phone sparingly or don't mind parting with their cash for expensive calls. Convenience is the service's main advantage, as well as peace of mind from knowing that there's a 24-hour help service if problems arise, and that travelers should almost always be reachable. The Xplorer is best suited for globe-trotters taking one-off worldwide trips, and for students and tourists, especially adventurers who may need a more durable device. Regular business travelers and GSM phone owners should seek other options, like obtaining a local SIM upon arrival, looking into other prepaid calling services, or renting a phone for a travel period.

Simple, cheap, rugged and waterproof, the B2100 has few features but knows how to take a beating

Why did we take the Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme phone to the gym, dunk it in the shower and boil it in the steam room?

Why did we take the Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme phone to the gym, dunk it in the shower and boil it in the steam room? Numerous reasons: to time our steam, listen to music, take pictures of our feet, and even try calling a few friends. But mostly the reason was: because we could. The B2100 makes that kind of crazy stuff possible, thanks to its rugged rubber exterior and waterproof flanges.

All this ruggedness won't drain your wallet, either. The B2100 is available for free on a £15-per-month contract if you sign up for 24 months, or for about £90 SIM-free.
