Kyocera starts shipping sat handsets

But all that glitters is not Iridium

Japanese company Kyocera has started shipping its Iridium handsets. The company is the only Iridium partner apart from Motorola and has two models, one which operates in dual mode. According to the company, it has 15 gateway operators around the world. Earlier this week, Iridium itself turned in poor financial results. Earlier this week, reports in the US press said that even senior executives had been given salesmen roles in order to sell the equipment. ® Related Stories Japanese coverage from The Register
