First global handheld satellite phone from Inmarsat
Global Telesat Communications has announced that the first global handheld satellite phone from Inmarsat – the IsatPhone Pro – is now available. The IsatPhone Pro will perform anywhere in the world, with the exception of the Poles, supported by Inmarsat’s global network coverage.
With the IsatPhone Pro, all boating enthusiasts can be safe in the knowledge that years of comprehensive research, development and testing has resulted in a handheld satellite phone that works in any conditions from rain storms to searing heat or sub-zero temperatures. Being miles from nowhere is not a problem either as the battery life is the longest in the market (up to 8 hours talk time and 100 hours standby).
Other features include voicemail, text and GPS location data, and in 2011, additional email, data and fax services will be available.
The ultimate in handheld satellite phone performance also comes at a very affordable price. Global Telesat Communications is offering the IsatPhone Pro with extremely competitive airtime offers, and will happily advise upon the most suitable and cost-effective airtime option for the customer’s intended usage.
There are three post-paid airtime contracts available: the Standard Plan, the Allowance 20 and Allowance 60. The Allowance Plans come with inclusive minutes to use, whereas the Standard Plan is billed depending on usage. There are no activation fees to any of the contracts, and the Standard Plan and Allowance 20 Plan have no minimum contract duration, making them unique within the satellite phone market.
A simpler alternative for many users may be the pre-paid option, where airtime can be purchased and the units stay active for an impressive two years from the chosen date of activation, unlike other networks that require more regular top ups with un-used airtime becoming void.
Pre-paid call charges on the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro start as low as £0.60 per minute – compared to prices of over £2.00 a few years ago.
The IsatPhone Pro and the various airtime contracts are available now from Global Telesat Communications at the most competitive prices around, made all the more attractive with a one year warranty. Being a Bronze Inmarsat partner, Global Telesat Communications is endorsed as a quality provider of Inmarsat products, and provide around the clock customer service wherever in the world they are needed.
