SPOT GPS has just released a new global satellite phone.
The SPOT Global Satellite phone allows you to stay connected while out on an adventure. It provides you with all the great features of a mobile phone even when traveling beyond the reach of a cell tower.
The SPOT Global Phone has all the typical calling features of any mobile phone along with a data network which allows you to send emails, surf the internet and transfer files. A voicemail feature ensures that you never miss a message, even when you aren't available. The data network can be accessed by connecting your Global Phone to your computer.
The phone itself sports a 4-line, 12-character LCD display with volume signal and battery indicators. The phone also contains a "minute alert" to help you manage your costs. The lithium-ion battery is rated to last for up to 4 hours of talk time and 36 hours of standby.
This is the smallest, lightest global phone handset at just 5.3" tall and 2.2" wide. It weighs just over 7 oz.
