It might look like an old BlackBerry, but it talks to the future. The world's first cell-phone/satellite-phone hybrid, the TERRESTAR GENUS shifts from cell to sat automatically when it can't find a tower. Bummer: It currently works only in the U.S. (excluding Hawaii) and the Caribbean. $800 with AT&T contract; terrestar.com
