Mobile satellite service operators Thuraya have introduced their new SatSleeve+ and SatSleeve Hotspot aimed at today’s generation of sailors who want to stay connected and share their experiences, however remote their location. 

The new SatSleeve Hotspot is a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, designed to make it easier to check emails, make important phone calls or post on social media from any location by simply switching on and connecting to Thuraya’s satellite network.

SatSleeve+, also new to the market, is a simple, sleek accessory that looks like a phone cover and clips easily onto smartphones, turning them into satellite smartphones. With Thuraya’s SatSleeve+, users can make calls, send emails and messages, and use their apps directly on their smartphone.

Both devices have an SOS button that connects to a preset number of the owner’s choice if they find themselves in trouble.
