Turn your iPhone into a satellite phone with Thuraya SatSleeve

Satellite operator Thuraya presented an interesting “cover” SatSleeve, which allows you to turn the iPhone into

satellite phone. For those who are in the tank, we explain: satellite communication for phone calls and sending SMS is used where communication from ordinary cellular operators is not available.

In addition to the satellite dish, the novelty is equippeda 2.4 Ah battery, an emergency call button and for some reason a microphone and a speaker (as if there are few iPhone ones). True, the "case" is designed to work only with the iPhone 4 and 4S, but promise to soon release an option for the iPhone 5. The issue price remains open (they say you can find out if you write a letter to customer.care@thuraya.com).
