Wow... these, especially the SPOT CONNECT, should be popular with the flying crowd. Essentially it does all the SPOT does, plus the ability to send individual text messages and emails. I see you have to pay extra for the individual messages, though. But, hey, short of having a satellite phone, or a working cell-phone, this would be great.

Hey Ed, here it is.... hybrid cell/satellite phone !!

Of course, it's SEND ONLY. And you'll need to keep the cell phone charged and working... something that's hard to do with some of these smart phones.
