Spot Global Phone - USD 499


Spot, a subsidiary of satellite communications giant Globalstar, recently announced its new Global Phone, a fairly basic lightweight handset that supports phone calls, SMS and compressed data at speeds of up to 28 kbps for $499. Usage fees are also fairly reasonable, with plans ranging:

  • 10 minutes per month for $25
  • Unlimited calling for $150, plus a $50 activation fee.
  • 80 minute plan for $40,
  • 200 minutes for $65
  • 400 minutes for $100 with monthly billing.

The device itself sports four hours of talk time or 36 hours of standby, and provides direct access to GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center when you dial 911. The Global Phone is available now through a variety of retailers, including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's and REI.
