Calling card vs. 'Freedom Phone'

This concept phone is a small pre-paid handset, but it's probably better to buy a calling card.

Here's one that promises to unleash you from your crappy phone that goes on strike once you are out of your country. Designed by Vadim Kibardin, the conceptual "Freedom Phone" is a small pre-paid handset that theoretically allows you to chat for 60, 100, or 200 minutes. There's no room for a SIM card so you'd be spared roaming charges.

According to Yanko Design, the Freedom Phone would charge in just 10 minutes. Not bad for a concept, but it should just stay as that. It's probably a better idea to buy a local calling card, though we might still consider using the phone as a paperweight.
