Thuraya deploys SatSleeve, enabling iPhone satellite calls
Satellite services operator Thuraya Telecommunications announced today the launch of the Thuraya SatSleeve, a clip-on case that brings satellite connectivity to the Apple iPhone. Only slightly larger than the iPhone itself, the compact adaptor provides users with the ability to turn an iPhone into a satellite phone that allows connectivity beyond the coverage of traditional terrestrial cellular networks.
