AT&T to start selling TerreStar Satellite phones again
It may not be all that important to most consumers, but the need to literally be connected may prove to be a life or death issue. So if you're in a location where you're in the middle of nowhere with not even a bar on your cell phone, then you may want to think about having a satellite phone. AT&T is reported to start reselling satellite enabled phones and services from TerreStar very soon. The two companies have jointly worked together since August of 2008 after they signed a nationwide reciprocal roaming agreement. The TerreStar handsets have an almost BlackBerry look with navigation via the trackball. It'll have Windows Mobile Professional 6, dual-band WCDMA, and quad-band GSM/EGPRS that will allow it to roam in and out of terrestrial and satellite networks. This is all coming into reality when the launch of the TerreStar-1 satellite arrives July 1. This device may come in handy with government officials and emergency personnel in the event of a major disaster. The rumors are hinting for a $700 unsubsidized price point for the handset and around $1 per minute for the service.
