Android's Version of the World's Most Expensive App

Anyone have about USD $13,000 lying around collecting dust? Do you really want to make a phone call on that airplane while you are in the air?  Well, great news! Now you can.  According to their press release, SafeCell has made their infamous “most expensive app on iOS” available on Android, allowing you to use your device on that private jet you have in your backyard.  A quote from the press release:

No matter which satellite system you have onboard, Iridium, Inmarsat or Thuraya, SafeCell connects you and no more roaming charges. From as little as $12,500 for a single channel license, up to $17,500 for a multi channel license, its cheap compared to $350 – $500K for conventional mobile phone technology. Plus you can use SafeCell in the USA and several other countries where conventional mobile phone systems are banned.

The App can be installed on unlimited mobiles at no extra charge however, with a single channel license only one mobile can log on at a time, whereas with a multi channel license, up to six mobiles can operate simultaneously. We developed the App this way as the majority of smaller jets only have one channel, whereas the bigger jets have broadband and up to six channels.”

I actually think that this is pretty awesome, and definitely worth it in a corporate environment.  Who’s gonna drop some pocket change and pick up this app?
