Posted by at 2:56 pm on June 18, 2010

Inmarsat has launched its new global handheld satellite phone, the IsatPhone Pro. Retailing for as little as US$500, the phone  is designed to  be a “game changer” in this specialist market. IsatPhone Pro offers up to 8 hours talk time and up to 100 hours on standby. The handset has secured an IP54 rating and is dust, splash and shock resistant. It is also capable of operating from -20 degrees C to +55 degrees C, which is the widest temperature range of any satellite phone.

The design of IsatPhone Pro, including a fully-manoeuvrable antenna, allows the handset to be placed on its side for easy hands-free use via Bluetooth. IsatPhone Pro has an intuitive GSM-style interface with a high-visibility colour screen, and a larger keypad for easy dialling in gloves.

Targeted primarily at professional users in the government, media, aid, oil and gas, mining and construction sectors, IsatPhone Pro offers hi satellite telephony, text and email messaging. Location data can also be viewed and sent in a text message.

“IsatPhone Pro will undoubtedly shake-up the global handheld market,” said Helen Stalker, Commercial Director for Global Satellite Phone Services at Inmarsat. “It’s the best overall proposition in the market. It meets all the fundamental user requirements and Inmarsat provides the best channel support in the industry. We have worked with the best developers, manufacturers and logistics providers to bring IsatPhone Pro to market.
