posted on 08/09/2013: 2684 views



The Thuraya Telecommunications Company yesterday launched a new edition of the Thuraya SatSleeve, the world's first and only satellite adaptor for the iPhone.

The new release not only allows users to make phone calls and to send SMS messages via Thuraya's satellite network, it also enables them to access emails, as well as all popular social media and instant messaging apps such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and WhatsApp, among others.

Thuraya SatSleeve users can now post news updates, chat via messaging apps with their contacts as well as send and receive email from the most remote locations in satellite mode. The device can be used across Thuraya's extensive satellite network, with coverage in over 140 countries.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch of the new product, Samer Halawi, Chief Executive Officer of Thuraya, said, "The new release of the SatSleeve, which now includes data exchange, underscores our commitment towards delivering new and innovative mobile satellite products. Thuraya is powering ahead of the competition with our strong product innovation strategy focused on making satellite communications more accessible and user-friendly. Users today are increasingly relying on their smartphones to stay connected, and we strongly believe in listening to them and to their requirements as we develop new mobile satellite products that align with their needs." Thuraya SatSleeve enables users to enjoy ubiquitous coverage even in the most remote environments that are not served or are under-served by existing terrestrial networks. The device also serves as an important mobile communications device, in addition to being a security backup for users that are operating in remote locations and in areas where natural or man-made disasters can render terrestrial communications unavailable.

SatSleeve customers include corporate users, enterprises from all industries, explorers, mountaineers, extreme sports participants and other outdoor enthusiasts. The SatSleeve can be used across the Thuraya network either with a Thuraya SIM card or with a standard GSM SIM card available from 356 worldwide GSM operators in more than 160 countries. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
