Thuraya XT-PRO claims to be most accurate satellite phone

thurayaSatellite phones do have one advantage over the ordinary smartphone – it supposedly is capable of getting a signal regardless of where you are on earth, but of course, this is within reasonable means, too. I suppose being stuck in a deep, cavernous cave would mean not having any signal, or if you share the same nuclear bunker as that with the President of the United States. Having said that, here is a satellite phone that might just pique your interest if staying in touch even in the remotest of areas is your priority – with the Thuraya XT-PRO.

Right off the bat, the Thuraya XT-PRO claims to deliver the longest talk-time, the largest display, and all three major navigation systems, now how about that? With this, it will deliver an unparalleled level of flexibility for government, energy, media and NGO users regardless of the region in which one resides. Targeting professional users across a range of market sectors including government, energy, media and NGOs, the Thuraya XT-PRO also holds the distinction of being the only satellite phone in the market that comes with built-in GPS, BeiDou and Glonass for the highest level of accuracy and added security in every region.

In addition, the Thuraya XT-PRO will sport a talk time of up to 9 hours, which also happens to be the longest lasting among all satellite phone competitors. It has a great degree of durability, being jet-water, dust and shock resistant, as it was built to ensure it can handle all of the harshest environments. There will also be a hardened Gorilla glass display that is the largest available on a satellite phone; while the screen has been specially designed for glare resistance, so that one can still enjoy optimal visibility even in bright sunlight. In the event of an emergency, the Thuraya XT-PRO will make use of a dedicated SOS button that has advanced navigation and tracking features for added safety.

There is no word on pricing, since the Thuraya XT-PRO will only be out at all Thuraya Service Partners from the end of this month onward, with various airtime plans to go with individual pricing.
