Gear Review: SPOT Global Phone


Gear Review: SPOT Global Phone

Over at, Andrew Tuohy reviews the SPOT Global Phone. This phone is powered by 100% satellite technology. Andrew writes

During the several months I had this phone, I spent a decent amount of time using it to talk to people while on the ground. Call quality wasn’t as perfect as advertised, but it was good. It didn’t exactly sound like a cell phone, but I could understand the person on the other end and they could understand me. Over time, as I used the phone in remote areas and even while in moving vehicles, I encountered this same relatively good level of call quality. One notable exception was when some electronic voodoo apparently changed my voice into something that a friend described as “really creepy” and “a mix of Christian Bale’s Batman and a dead person.”
