Looks like a outdated GSM mobile phone, right? Thuraya SO-2510 is in fact the World’s Smallest Satellite Phone which offers satellite services exclusively in a mobile handset that is as compact and light as a small GSM phone.
The device has a 1.5-inch 28 x 128 pixels screen with 65,000 colours, USB connectivity, and up to 32 MB of memory. Thuraya SO-2510 measures 118mm (height) x 53 mm (width) x 18.8 mm (thick), and weighs only 130 g.
As the world’s smallest and lightest satellite phone ever made (weighing only 130 g), the lightweight pocket size phone is designed to be highly portable and more user friendly than ever before.
In addition, the Global Positioning System feature in the handset facilitates location tracking while roaming in remote and unconnected areas in Thuraya’s network.
