Frugal Traveler: how to stay in touch on the road

The New York Times‘s Matt Gross, aka the Frugal Traveler (whose work I’ve praised in the past), has a good post about how to stay in touch cheaply when you’re traveling abroad.

He discusses SIM cards (so you can get a local number), Skype (to make voice calls via the Web), and Fring (a service that allows you to, among other things, use Skype from your mobile phone).
