Iridium, the satellite phone company, is branching out. With the company’s new device, now you can even check e-mail on your smartphone from the remotest corners of the globe.
It’s a commonplace to observe of our modern era that we’re “connected wherever we go.” But what if you go to the wilds of the Serengeti, or the remotest corners of the Australian Outback? What if you go to the top of K2, or the middle of Indian Ocean? If you’re one of those curious characters who likes to turn your back on civilization while still remaining tethered to it, then Iridium, a “personal mobile satellite communications” company based out of McLean, Virginia, has you covered.
