Cubic's MaxRoam SIM goes live today. This is the SIM that lets you roam your phone internationally at local rates. David Pogue's article in the NY Times is a good and balanced write-up. As Andy Abramson noted, Pogue must have actually used the product.
I'll be grabbing one of these and sticking it into a spare handset. I'm sure it will save money. Last night, for example, I made a couple of calls to India. Who knows how much they cost me? And since taking my rarely used North American roaming off my Rogers plan, I'll need something next month at VON.
Oh, and one lucky person who buys a MaxRoam SIM today (September 27) will win an unlocked iPhone.
