With the Thuraya SatSleeve you turn your smartphone into a satellite phone. You get both versions: As a universal adapter (SatSleeve+) and an stand adapter (SatSleeve Hotspot). The Satsleeve is compatible with numerous iOS and Android models. An external device (tablet or laptop) can also be connected via wifi for data connection.
Thuraya only works in Europe, Asia, Africa (excluding the south), Australia. For North- and South-America and the south of Africa you need an Iridium or Inmarsat satellite phone.

**) Data transmission: On the one hand, Thuraya has a much better data rate than Iridium satellite phones. On the other hand, this is very low for today’s demands even under optimal conditions. Sending/receiving emails works, but you should avoid large file attachments. Surfing is possible — depending on the site, YouTube definitely not. Under optimal conditions, you need over 2 minutes for 1 MB of data.
