National Geographic Travel Abroad Travel Phone

What a great idea - a cell phone that you can use almost everywhere, always pay the same and have free incoming calls (no expensive roaming charges). That’s exactly what National Geographic is proposing - they teamed up with a company called Cellular Abroad to offer this service and I think it’s a cool concept.
I was checking the product site, and they even rent them, in case you just need for a short period. I did find two negative points though:

  1. Not every single country in the world is covered
  2. The phone itself isn’t very sexy ;)

Still, this is probably the best solution I’ve seen so far to always stay reachable and not spend a fortune. I could seriously consider this for the trip. Is anybody aware of alternatives of this type?
