Niche market huh.... you might want to rethink that. For those of you that dot get outside the concrete jungles of the cities/suburbs that you live in, sure a sat phone doesnt make much sense. The govt has their own sat stuff that they use im sure, but for the commercial and businesses that operate where there are limited to no cell signals, this is well worth it, and as always prices will drop once more people start buying it. You can bet that once they get this stuff going and get enough sat's in space, all the port authorities, oil rigs, off shore anything, will be using them. For companies that operate in rural areas where cell signals are sporadic this will be a great thing to have. Sure everyday people will likely not get one of these off the bat for personal use, but sat tech is alot better and more advanced than these cell towers. Heck cell service drops out on the southern half of the US when a hurricane is coming in as everyone is using them to communicate and they over load the towers. Sat phones have been around longer than the cell phone and their tech is proven. Give these guys a chance and you will likely see a broad change of the landscape with a sat vs cell war in the next 5-7 years.

I wish they would take over. Get rid of those ugly towers all over the place. IDK if anyone watches the twit podcasts, but they had one with Roz Savage. She is rowing the Pacific Ocean and the sat phone she used had great quality.
