DOODAD launches the world's easiest pay-as-you-go travel data SIM card

Keeping international travelers connected, when in roam.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DOODAD, the data-only MVNO for people who travel internationally, today launched the simple, affordable, headache-free way to get international data around the world. DOODAD works in unlocked GSM smart phones and tablets, snapping out as either a mini or micro SIM (with Nano on the way), and is powered by a simple pay-as-you-go system. Place the DOODAD in your device, add some DOO-DATA, and you're able to access the Internet in 54 countries around the world with no contracts, no fine print and no nonsense.

Rather than relying on expensive and limited carrier-based data plans, the DOODAD works on a simple tier-based structure. For example, use your DOODAD in Australia and you'll pay just 30 cents/MB, while in the UK it's 60c/MB. In comparison, a single megabyte of Data Roaming through most carriers sits around $20/MB in either of those countries - easy to push into the hundreds of dollars in a single day.

"We rely upon our data for a lot of things, business, getting directions, finding where to eat, and staying in touch with the people who matter. So we found it odd that when traveling internationally, data was complicated, inconvenient, or just way too expensive," said Sarah Neill, CEO of DOODAD. "So we launched DOODAD. You control how much you want to spend each day, so you can stay connected, without worrying."

Over 70% of people turn off Data Roaming while overseas to avoid these outrageous data charges. But people need not go without any longer. Get a DOODAD, load it up with DOO-DATA, and use it each time you travel away. DOO-DATA lasts 365 days, so any you don't use, is ready for your next trip.

With the data access DOODAD provides, you can look up maps and find your way around, keep in touch with your loved ones, make VoIP calls, check your email, and keep using Facebook without coming home to bill shock.

So don't drop off the grid when you next travel - get a free DOODAD at
