Iridium Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: IRDM), today announced it has released new special edition Iridium Extreme satellite phones; Iridium Extreme Safety Yellow and Iridium Extreme Sporting Camo. The special edition phones are available in limited quantities from select Iridium retailers around the world.

First introduced in 2011, the Iridium Extreme was the first satellite phone built with an integrated SOS emergency button, and quickly established itself as the satellite phone of choice for governments, businesses, first responders, adventurers and consumers.  The phone also features text messaging, text-to-email, GPS tracking capabilities and military-grade durability with an IP65 rating.


“Our special edition Iridium Extreme satellite phones are designed for those who either want to make sure they’re seen and heard, with the Safety Yellow, or those who may want to stay hidden in the brush and communicate at the right time, with the Sporting Camo,” says Josh Miner, vice president of Land Mobile at Iridium. “The Safety Yellow edition is meant to be easy to spot, like construction vests or an EPIRB device on a boat. Whereas the Sporting Camo edition makes a lot of sense for those going off-the-beaten path during hunting season or looking for the right matching accessory to fit their lifestyle.”

Like the standard model, Iridium Extreme Safety Yellow and Iridium Extreme Sporting Camo come with full accessory kits, but also a matching color lanyard. Standard accessories include a travel charger with international adapters, magnetic vehicle mount external antenna, hands-free earpiece with microphone and more.
