The worldly National Geographic Xplorer isn't just a cell phone. Tucked under the rugged back cover is a SIM card capable of giving you both a U.S. and a UK phone number for your international travel.

Branded as part of the National Geographic family, the Xplorer has a distinctively rugged theme, from the baked-in loop on top for tying the phone to your pack, to the rubberized buttons on the dialpad.

The Xplorer also manages to be stylish in a sporty way, with red racing stripes up the spines.

To keep out dust, water, and other environmental extras, the Xplorer locks its battery (and its MicroSD card slot) behind a screwed-in back cover. A small coin is all you need to unlock it.

See these bumps on the Xplorer's left spine? These belong to the volume rocker, and to the quite bright flashlight (torch) that sits on top of the phone.
