‘Tis that time of year when a lot of people will be headed off on exotic overseas vacations. (Sadly I’m not one of them…) So I thought I’d pass along this great CNET article about what options you have available for using your smartphone or tablet abroad.

I also have to say, this is my favourite quote from the article, re. using Wi-Fi only:
“What’s more, because you are essentially turning off all cellular service, friends and family will not be able to reach you via phone call or text message while you’re away. But I suppose this could also be seen as a pro for some travelers.”
