Thuraya SG-2520

Renowned as “Thuraya’s New Generation Smart Phone,” the SG-2520 handset offers an endless amount of features and breakthrough technology. 

Having three integrated technologies in one handset: Satellite, GSM and GPS, provides the user with an unsurpassed combination of quality and performance. 

The phone is portable and lightweight, weighing 180 grams, making this handset one of the smallest dual mode satellite phones available.  SG-2520 is fully equipped with distinct features such as a built in camera, high-resolution colour screen, and the choice to communicate through advanced SMS, MMS and email applications. 
This handset is versatile allowing the user to connect to the Thuraya satellite telecommunication services* when in a remote location or to a GSM connection when it is available. 
Thuraya SG-2520 is also the only satellite tri-band phone that provides connectivity on GSM mode in all the five continents of Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe and North America, operating on three different GSM networks: 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz.  This offers greater flexibility in high GSM environments with increased phone usage and voice quality.
The SG-2520 is not just a functional satellite phone, but also a personal, fashionable and mobile office, giving you everything a modern GSM mobile can and more!
