New from Iridium and Pivotel come two Iridium Extreme Special Edition satellite phones for people who live, work or play on the water or in the great outdoors. The Iridium Extreme satphone does it all, keeping you connected under the harshest conditions from the furthermost reaches of the globe, and has become one of the world’s most relied on handheld satellite phones since its introduction. Now, the satellite phone people turn to for reliability and coverage is in two new colors – or Special Editions: Sporting Camo and Safety Yellow, tailored for the sportsmen, emergency responders and maritime users who rely on satellite communications and need high (or very low) visibility.
The new Iridium Extreme Special Edition satphones are identical to the black Extreme except for the faceplate, lanyard, and packaging. The real difference is the color of the faceplate which is more suitable for certain people who are most likely to need a satellite phone in, well, extreme conditions.
The Extreme Special Edition works with all standard Iridium Handset satellite airtime plans, both postpaid and prepaid, and is available with local numbers in the US, UK, and Canada when activated with a Pivotel satellite airtime plan.
Iridium Extreme Safety Yellow for Emergency Responders and Boaters
The safety yellow gives a high-visibility front panel that makes it easy to spot in all situations – a critical feature for emergency response users and one that casual marine users rely on. For emergency responders, for whom seconds can make a critical difference, a high-visibility satphone will ensure that no time is lost in finding the phone when you need it. For boaters who need a handheld phone – either for shoreside use or as primary communications on coastal cruises, high visibility is something that people expect in other marine products – now their satellite phone will provide that, too. Shop the Iridium Extreme Special Edition in Safety Yellow.
Iridium Extreme Sporting Camo for Outdoors and Sporting Activities
At the other end of the spectrum are those spend time in the backcountry and want to remain stealthy. Sporting Camo fits in with the gear they already use. Together with Iridium’s high reliability and global coverage this makes it one of the best satphones for hikers, hunters, and other extreme outdoor sports enthusiasts.
