Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong introduces the Handy Phone that lets guests call and connect to the world — for free

International roaming charges, connecting to the Internet during trips (and post that great picture from last night), how to stay connected with loved ones when you’re oceans away from home — all of these are concerns every avid traveler hopes to address before an exciting holiday.

Lucky for those who love to travel, technology has gifted them with yet another handy gadget for traveling, especially when it comes to connectivity, and it’s all beginning at the Kowloon Shangri-la, a five-star deluxe hotel in Hong Kong.
