For Only $25K You Can Use Your Mobile Phone At Sea

Thanks to Yme Bosma for telling us about this solution for those of you who simply have way too much money to burn and a bizarre desire to make sure that your usual GSM or CDMA mobile phone works while you’re at sea. Of course, I imagine this sort of product is more designed for cruise ships who want to offer their passengers the ability to use their mobile phones at roaming rates. As such, it might not be such a crazy idea. The material from the company is not all that clear on how this actually works (apparently you need to sign an NDA for the details), but it looks like it might be a solution for using mobile phones on airplanes as well.
