Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot

The new Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot is quite different to other similar devices.  How?

OK, it is a Wi-Fi Hotspot.  It connects to your iOS or Android device.  It is portable.  It has a stand.  It gives satellite calls and SMS where there is no mobile network.  It pairs with your phone, and you drive it with a free App.  Now, ALL of the similar devices that are available today tick every one of those boxes (well, some don’t need stands… but lets not be picky).

So what is so unique about the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot?

You can get an additional adapter that fits your Smartphone so you only have to carry one device… not two.

OK… so what is the difference between the SatSleeve Hotspot and a SatSleeve+?  Well, that depends on what SatSleeve you are talking about.  If you are talking about the SatSleeves that were specific to your phone model, then LOTS.  If you are talking about the new SatSleeve+ then … not much apart from the adapter you use. 

So, you have the main unit (which is essentially the brain behind the whole thing).  It sits at the back, and is the part with the antenna. 

With the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot, the adapter that you slide onto that antenna section is a stand that allows the SatSleeve to sit upright, at a better (yet
adjustable) angle so it can better see the satellite (which gives you a stronger, clearer connection).  Now, it can stay outside, while you go inside with your iPhone or Android SmartPhone and you can make and receive both calls and SMS using the universal App.

Converting the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot into a SatSleeve+

Buy the universal adapter to convert the Thuraya Hotspot to a Satsleeve+

If you wanted to convert the unit to a SatSleeve+ all you need to do is get the “universal adapter” and swap the stand for this adapter, and clip your SmartPhone in, and away you go.  Pick up one device and your phone goes with it!

So, really they are the same thing, but two totally different ways of using it.  The Thuraya SatSleeve HotSpot is very versatile, and is well worth considering when choosing what sat phone or device you are looking to fit both your budget, and your life.
