AT&T introduces satellite smart phone

September 22, 2010

On Tuesday, the company started selling the Terrestar Genus which promises blanket coverage, even off shore. But there are limits to the phone's use. It must be used outdoors and have a clear shot of the southern sky. That's where its satellite is located.

AT&T will first sell the satellite phone to professional customers like emergency crews. It will be sold to the public later this year.
