The perfect blend of mobility and simplicity, the Thuraya SatSleeve+ and SatSleeve Hotspot are simple and fast ways to transform your phone into a satellite smartphone.  These support the communication needs of all smartphone users – from frequent travelers and adventurous explorers to corporate and NGO users.
