Thuraya satellite phones boldly go where no smartphones have gone before. They keep you connected from almost anywhere because they operate on a network in outer space. The phones provide similar functionality to terrestrial mobile phones like voice, SMS and low-bandwidth Internet access, fulfilling basic connectivity needs.
Now, imagine a phone that combines the power of satellite and the functionality of a smartphone. A phone that does not only rely on a terrestrial cell phone network but has the capability of beaming its calls and data to and from satellites orbiting the Earth.
The Thuraya X5-Touch is the world’s first Android-based satellite & GSM phone offering unparalleled flexibility. It runs on the Android operating system and has a 5.2” full HD touchscreen for users who frequently move in and out of terrestrial coverage across a range of market sectors including govern- ment missions, energy projects, enterprise communications, and NGO deployments. It offers fast and simple connectivity on the move, in remote areas normally beyond the reach of smartphones.
**Please note: Outfitter Satellite does not provide GSM service for the X5. We do provide service for the satellite-side of the device
