KDDI Announces '9555' Iridium Handheld Satellite Phone <Attachment>

'9555' Features

(1) Compact
This model is around 30% smaller than the previous model (9505A), making it more portable.

(2) Advanced
A separately sold data kit set was required for data communication with the previous model (9595A), but this new model can be used as a stand alone data communication device (data transmission speed of 2.4kbps) since it is equipped with a mini USB port.

(3) Updated antenna structure
The previous model (9504A) had a detachable antenna, but the 9555 model has an antenna that can be folded into the device, giving the phone a sleek design.
