Thuraya Releases SatSleeve: Turn Your iPhone Into A Legit Satellite Phone

If you need to connect to satellites in order to make cellular calls (where DO YOU LIVE!), you’re probably sick of having to pass up things like the iPhone for bulkier and less cool satellite phones.  Thuraya has just released the SatSleeve (PDF), the world’s first case that turns your iPhone into a satellite phone.

From Thuraya:

Thuraya SatSleeve is the world’s first satellite adaptor for the iPhone, providing users with easy and affordable access to mobile communication services delivered over Thuraya’s powerful satellite network. Insert your iPhone into the SatSleeve to stay connected through phone calls and SMS via satellite mode — and put the entire world within reach.

Pretty damn cool if you ask me. There’s no word on price, but reall, how can you put a price on this Bond villian-esque device?
