Just got this Email from Sat Phone City:

Iridium 9575
This is an "unofficial" leak to announce the soon to be released Iridium 9575 handset!

Unverified Specifications:

The rumour mill is a humming that Iridium will be releasing a new handset to compliment its satellite network in the near future. The Iridium 9575 satellite phone will be 10% thinner and 7% lighter than the current long term model the Iridium 9555. The Iridium 9575 will also be more rugged with both an IP65 and US MIL 810F rating and a rubber grip. The 9575 antenna will have a more rugged design and the unit will come with a tracking function complete with a panic button for emergency situations.

Iridium has not released any information about the handset as of yet, which is due to be released sometime in July. We have confirmed that it will be GPS capable and it will be more expensive than the existing model, 9555 but no specific pricing details have been released. As soon as more information becomes available we will post it on our website.
