Iridium Beams In More Data Services

Iridium has decided that they can’t be left out of the whole SMS craze, so for those of you who just have to be able to send text messages while traveling to the north pole, Iridium has come to the rescue. That’s right, SMS text messaging is now coming to Iridium satellite phones. Already you can send text messages to each other, but next month you’ll be able to send and receive regular SMS messages to anyone else with an SMS-enabled phone.
