World's first hybrid cellular-satellite mobile phone

A new mobile phone has been unveiled at the CTIA 2009 show by Elektrobit that combines regular mobile cellular technology with satellite technology. The phone enables you to make mobile calls anywhere in the world - no matter how poor the reception or how remote your location, according to the UberReview website.


Satellite phones have become important in locations where the local telecom provides a poor quality infrastructure and is therefore unreliable. For remote communities, satellite phones solve the problem of connecting to the national and international landline network. Now, however, you can enjoy the benefits of both types of networks.


To be launched at the end of 2009, the new handset, which features a sleek design, will include Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a three-megapixel camera plus 100MB internal memory and a microSD expansion slot. Price details and UK release dates were unavailable.
