Need a Wi-Fi internet connection in the jungle? Iridium Communication's new Iridium Go hotspot has you covered

Everyone knows how annoying it is to not have an active internet connection to check TweakTown when hiking through the middle of the jungle, or while hiking in the Alps right? Well that is no longer an issue thanks to Iridium Communications' latest offering, the new Iridium Go. All kidding aside, this device will change the way activist, scientist, and media communicate in areas where Internet access is limited or non existent.


The Iridium Go is a portable Wi-Fi hotspot that connects to the internet via satellite and provides a broadband connection to your PC no mater where you are in the world. The device allows users to surf the internet, make calls, and even send text messages when there is no land or cellular based internet available. The device ships with Android and iOS apps ready to download from their respective stores, but wont be available for some time. Pricing is unknown at this time, but we do know that the MSRP will be below $800 USD.
