Spot Global Phone


The Spot Global Phone, which debuted earlier this year at CTIA, may be just the gadget for those times when you can't, or don't what to be, away from at all. It doesn't snap photos, it won't run apps, and it doesn't play music, but it will let you stay...

The Spot Global Phone lets you make calls where you can't get a cellular connection. The interface is easy to use and the simple keypad and controls are well-designed.

The Spot Global's service plans are expensive and its call quality varies wildly. The handset can't receive texts, and its large battery charger is cumbersome.

The satellite-powered Spot Global Phone lets you go far off the grid, just as long as you keep your cost and performance expectations in check.

After developing a few generations of satellite trackers, SPOT has stepped it up a notch with a satellite phone.
