Globalstar GSP-1700: Satellite phone

Globalstar has introduced a lighter, smaller satellite phone with the Globalstar GSP-1700. It plans to operate in more than 120 countries in six continents around the world, with the support of CDMA cell networks as well as EV-DO standard. There doesn’t seem to be a whole bunch of bell-and-whistles features on this one. The battery is good for 4 hours of talking and 36 hours of standby. However, it does have six operating languages including English, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. You gotta like the way the antennas swing out like that, too.
