Small Business Tip: New Satellite Phone with “Smart Wireless” Features Coming

Businesses, government agencies and international organizations are the initial target markets for a new satellite phone service coming from AT&T.  The TerreStar Genus phone will be able to make calls at sea or from remote locations.  When cellular networks are unavailable, a satellite covering North America will act as a cell site in space to provide coverage to help users stay connected.

The new device expected to hit the market next year will include all the features of a “smart” device, including the ability to access AT&T’s wireless network. There are other satellite phones available, but they currently don’t offer the smart phone capabilities. AT&T has not announced pricing of the phones or service.

The new satellite phone will be introduced later this week at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference in Denver.
