Iridium Go

Wonder what everyone thinks of this plug and play option coming out of iridium


Iridium Go promises to connect you almost anywhere

NEW YORK For all of the public places where you can connect to the Internet wirelessly these days, Wi-Fi still isn't ubiquitous. And if you're a boater, hiker, pilot, camper or another person who spends a lot of time out in the wild, the chances of connecting to cyberspace in some remote locations is near impossible. It's not just data. Try making a cellular phone call in such places. Matt Desch, CEO of Iridium Communications, says the cellular industry covers only about 10% of the Earth's surface, with even less coverage in the skies. On Tuesday, Iridium unveils its potential solution, a compact (4.5 x 3.25 x 1.25 inch) 10.4-ounce device called Iridium Go that promises to connect you most everywhere you might be, from your own phone or tablet, at least when Go can communicate with Iridium's low-orbit satellite network. The device converts a satellite signal into Wi-Fi. It is expected out in the second quarter of the year.
