Thuraya Sat Sleeve for iPhone Gets You Covered Anywhere

Saturday, March 23rd 2013. | Mobile Phones

No one wants to be stranded in some remote area because no one likes to see their iPhone rendering “no signal” icon on its screen. Seriously, that could be the worst nightmare for anyone. Worry not, though, because with the recent release of Thuraya Sat Sleeve case from Thuraya Telecommunications, your iPhone will always be able to reach the outer world, no matter where on earth you’re grounded.

Thuraya Sat Sleeve adds Satellite Connectivity to iPhone

In a nutshell, Thuraya Sat Sleeve is a case whose main functionality is connecting your iPhone to the company’s satellite network. Sounds awesome, right? But this specialty is at the cost of its look. As soon as you wrap your handset with this case, you’re going to find it almost similar to old chunky cell phone with an antenna on its top. Put it simply, your iPhone will look like a device form the 90s.

Given that wall outlet is not something you can easily find on remote areas, Thuraya Sat Sleeve is equipped with a 2,400mAh battery. At the back is an emergency button which will dial a particular number as soon as you push it. There is an app which allows you to set this up. According to the company, as soon as your iPhone is connected to the network, you can both receive and make a phone call in almost all areas in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia Pacific, Central Asia, and also Australia. Don’t get too carried away, though, because a few minutes of talk time can result in a whopping amount of bill.


Current model only supports iPhone 4/ 4S and only doesn’t allow user to browse the internet. The company states that the iPhone 5 version will be available in the coming month for the same price of $499. Are you getting this one?
