Iridium Go! can turn your smartphone into a satellite phone

Iridium Communications Inc. announced Iridium GO!, the first portable satellite hotspot that connects to any smartphone or tablet.

Iridium GO! creates a satellite-based Wi-Fi zone anywhere on the planet, enabling up to five smartphones to make calls, get their email, text and use some apps, even when terrestrial networks are non-existent, unreliable or costly. This first of its kind product allows users to conduct business, connect with family or access information no matter where they may travel - without the need for a satellite phone.

No matter where you are on the planet, Iridium GO! simplifies global communications for:

  • Pilots, boaters and truckers
  • Adventurers and explorers
  • Remote residents and vacationers
  • Emergency and first responders
  • Global and business travellers
  • Global enterprise
  • Executives and diplomats
  • Foreign missions
  • Government and NGOs
  • Military operations
  • M2M applications
  • Anyone out of cellular range

Iridium GO! will be available during the first half of 2014 through select Iridium distribution partners. The Iridium GO! developers program is currently available for select partners, and is expected to be commercially available in Q2 2014.
