Verizon intros Escapade

Verizon on Thursday announced the Escapade, a PCD-made world phone. The device is one of the least expensive in the carrier's lineup that can support international roaming thanks to its dual-band CDMA and quad-band GSM/GPRS support. The clamshell already ships with a SIM card.

Targeted at the low-end, it has a relatively basic feature set with a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and voice commands. It has basic Internet access with web, e-mail and instant messaging support. Verizon's VZ Navigator service lets users receive turn-by-turn driving directions but only through assisted GPS. The Escapade will cost $30 after a $50 mail-in rebate and on a new two-year contract.
