I have just read an advertorial about this Zoleo device which purports to turn a smart phone into a satellite communications device with world wide coverage, the article was pretty light on detail though. So, I am familiar with satphones but can anyone enlighten me on this particular bit of gear? I'm wondering about performance, cost, utility and whether its a gimmick.

It seems very similar to the Garmin Inreach Mini but 50% heavier and it seems on first glance to be missing a little functionality such as weather forecasts. Still needs a subscription which seems more expensive than Garmin.
