Iridium Drops Prices From Ludicrous to Ridiculous

from the nice-try dept

Apparently Iridium thinks that by dropping the price of calls by $1 a minute people will rush out and snap up Iridium phones. I don’t think so. The phones themselves are still way too expensive, and in what world would someone still be okay with paying $2/minute for a call within the US whereas a cell phone (which will even – get this – work inside) will cost you next to nothing.
