Look at this little guy. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but powerful enough to enable you to make phone calls, text, and use data virtually anywhere in the world. Like, even on the peaks of remote mountains or in the middle of uninhabited deserts, thanks to the magic of satellites.
If you think your phone's data connection is shitty at home, just imagine being in the middle of the wilderness. Or on a mountain. Or the ocean. Iridium's new super-rugged handset and access point sucks satellite signal everywhere you go.
Every time there's an airplane crash and they can't find the flight data recorder I ask the same question: Why don't they transmit all the data and record it in a server in real time? That's what Iridium thinks too.
