Satellite phone claims to be the cheapest

At $775 fo 2 hours and 40 minutes of talk time, we'll stick with our cell phone.


When we first saw the "" it seemed that, unlike most gigantic predecessors, it might actually be of a manageable size. Though not the smallest satellite phone around, it's certainly more compact than a lot of earlier versions we've seen.

But like all sat-phones, the telltale oversized antenna will make sure it never gets confused with a Razr or Chocolate. Even more distinguishing is its price of $775--which the company claims is one of the world's cheapest, according to Red Ferret. And that's for a whole 2 hours and 40 minutes of talk time.

Of course, if you're having car trouble in the middle of the Gobi Desert, that'll probably seem like a bargain.
