Samer Halawi, Chief Executive Officer of Thuraya remarked: “The launch of the Thuraya XT-PRO reaffirms our leadership position in the mobile satellite phone sector. It houses all three major navigation systems, the longest talk-time, and the largest display on the market. Following the success of the SatSleeve and the XT-LITE, we continue to demonstrate our ability to disrupt the mobile satellite industry with ground-breaking products of the highest quality. The XT-PRO is ideal for our core customer base of professional satellite phone users who count on us to deliver highly reliable connectivity in some of the world’s toughest and most remote places.”
Halawi explained that Thuraya's satellite phone portfolio has been strengthened with the new flagship Thuraya XT–PRO for the professional user, while the existing Thuraya XT-LITE is for the casual user. "The XT-PRO’s feature upgrades and its sleek design reflect our aim to understand and continuously evaluate what users are looking for in a satellite phone,” he said.
The Thuraya XT-PRO allows users to enjoy ubiquitous coverage in areas that are not served or are under-served by terrestrial networks. The device also works as a security backup when natural or man-made disasters disrupt terrestrial communications. The XT-PRO can be used across the Thuraya network covering two thirds of the globe, including more than 160 countries. The phone can be used with a Thuraya prepaid or postpaid SIM card, or with a SIM card from any of Thuraya’s worldwide GSM roaming partners.
The Thuraya XT-PRO is available at all Thuraya Service Partners beginning April 30, 2015.
