Short for 'satellite phone'; a communication device that is mightier than the more common cell phone
which every 5 year old chick now has.
These phones communicate with satellites in space using an abnormally large antenna instead of those ugly tower
s that have sprung up everywhere in the past couple of years.
Satellite phones are typically larger and more rugged than the ordinary mobile phone
s that peasant
s use. They are also more expensive to use and are known for their poor battery life.
They don't work so well inside buildings and are therefore unpopular with urbanites
who would rather settle for a piece of shit iPhone
but are an essential part of daily life in the backarse
