Compact Satellite Phone

Globalstar today said that it had resolved the size dilemma common to many satellite phones by releasing its new GSP-1700 handset. The 1700 is the world's lightest and smallest satellite phone, the company claims. With the exception of its retractable antenna, the design more closely resembles the dimensions of many cellphones and weighs only 7.1 ounces. It also has features rare to satellite technology, such as the ability to receive calls while the antenna is stowed away or to connect to EVDO mobile broadband for data when connected to a Mac or PC through the bundled USB cable. Globalstar doesn't list pricing but says the GSP-1700 is available now with the company's own satellite phone service.
