Wireless phone to make Skype calls without using a computer
Anyone have any experience with these?

I am not too tech savvy, but it seems like it solves most riddles with traveling and calling.

Do you guys think that iPod Touch is the best international phone?

Or is there a better solution?

Ha. I was just reading about the google phone.

When is it coming out? Early 2010?

I need something I can bust out calls anywhere. (I guess most people do).

DO NOT BUY THIS THING!

[Image: Irid9555.jpg]

It's the Motorola 9505. The company is called Iridium. I got it for my boat.

It was $1500 and you have to buy $250 worth of prepaid service. It deducts $1.10 per minute from the prepaid card.

The funny thing is the people you call's lines are always busy. I called my freaking self on my regular cell phone and it was busy. The phone was right there next to me.

It does work anywhere in the world though.

Aloha!

Kona,

Ha. I know that company.

They were shooting satellites up into space back in the late 90's.

Burned through mad venture cap cash too.

I didn't know they were still around.

They make some really cool stuff.

My friend has their broadband receiver on his boat.

We took it to the Northwest Islands and girls were checking their Facebooks.

40k well spent.

Aloha!
