  • The Motorola Defy Satellite Link is now available for purchase.
  • You can buy it from B&H Photo for $150 right now.
  • Using this device, you can connect any Android phone or iPhone to satellite services for emergency use.

Satellite connectivity on smartphones has been a hot topic in the past few months, ever since Apple announced its emergency SOS tech on the iPhone 14 series. There have been a few announcements from companies that want to bake the functionality within the phone itself, but that would require users to buy a new phone. If you wish to continue using your current phone but still want satellite connectivity, then the Motorola Defy Satellite Link is available for you to purchase.

Launched in February 2023 at MWC, the Motorola Defy Satellite Link is built by the Bullitt Group (known for the Cat brand of rugged phones). The gadget connects via Bluetooth to any existing Android phone or iPhone and allows the phone to connect to a network of geostationary satellites.
