The new Verizon Escapade is a low-end dual-mode global handset made by Pantech. It lacks support for EV-DO, UMTS, and even EDGE data networks, instead offering you voice and text services in "220 destinations worldwide". Besides that it has a 2Mpix camera, support for voice commands, Bluetooth, and VZ Navigator.
All that for just $29.99 on contract after rebate. Look it up online and in Verizon stores if you're interested.
