One glance at Thuraya’s XT-Lite and Nokia’s 3310 comes to mind. It may not be dressed to kill, but definitely serves its purpose well. It is constructed to fit in your hand with perfection. The sturdy exterior lends a stronger grip an enhanced durability. The body accommodates a robust keypad, an earphone jack and an Omni-directional antenna to deliver timely service. The no-frill grid menu is well-defined by its uncongested display. A splash of hues would jazz up the device, however since it caters to the needs and requirements of the business strata, the monochrome background works to the T. This featherweight phone supports 12 languages which elevates the experience. Once you have charged the device, make sure the SIM card works. Thereafter, configure the language of your choice and then you can talk your way to the destination.

Perked up with 80 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talk time, the phone is bound to add profitable value to your competitive edge. The GPS function assists the user in navigating roads by displaying the directions and calculating the distance, as well as sending coordinates via text messages to zero down on the exact position. Moreover, a GSM SIM card is compatible with the XT-Lite. Although, the user needs to use the phone on roaming mode.
The telecommunications giant has instilled a favorable feature in the XT product line, called GEO reporting (SOS). The feature gives the user the liberty to affix a number as their emergency contact. Whenever the user dials the emergency number, it will relay a signal delivering the GPS coordinates to the contact."

Until the end of the year, all XT-Lite handsets will now come with both the English and Arabic on the keypad (pictures below). This change affects no other feature of the handsets and is purely cosmetic.
