Thuraya Telecommunications Company recently introduced the world’s most advanced satellite phone called the Thuraya XT-PRO.
Featuring the largest display yet available in satellite phones, it provides the longest talk time (up to nine hours) as well as access to all three major navigation systems. The phone provides remarkable flexibility for leaders in media, energy, government and non-governmental organizations.
The phone is dust, shock and jet-water resistant, guaranteeing this technology will handle harsh environments. The glass screen resists glare, and a specialized SOS button is available for users in case of an emergency.
"The launch of the Thuraya XT-PRO reaffirms our leadership position in the mobile satellite phone sector,” Thuraya Chief Executive Officer Samer Halawi said. “It houses all three major navigation systems, the longest talk time, and the largest display on the market. Following the success of the SatSleeve and the XT-LITE, we continue to demonstrate our ability to disrupt the mobile satellite industry with ground-breaking products of the highest quality."
Halawi said the XT-PRO is ideal for a core customer base of professional satellite phone users who count on highly reliable connectivity in some of the world's toughest and most remote places.
"The Thuraya XT-PRO builds on the success of the highly popular Thuraya XT and introduces new features and functionality for an enhanced user experience,” Halawi said. “This allows Thuraya to strengthen its satellite phone portfolio with the new flagship product, Thuraya XT-PRO, for the professional user, and the Thuraya XT-LITE for the casual user. The XT-PRO's feature upgrades and its sleek design reflect our aim to understand and continuously evaluate what users are looking for in a satellite phone."
