AT&T Launches TerreStar Genus Satellite Phone

AT&T and TerreStar announced the launch of the Genus last week, a Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone that will connect to the TerreStar satellite network when it's out of range.

Using GSM/EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA, the phone will feature a 2.6-inch (320x240 touchscreen), 3.0 megapixel camera, 100MB of internal memory, microSD card slot for extra storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The battery life is pretty horrible when talking via the satellite network and reduces the talk time from 5 hours (GSM) to 1.3 hours. Standby time also suffers and drops from 150-170 hours to 30-40 hours.

The Genus will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2010 for enterprise and government customers. A consumer version is also planned in the future. Price was not revealed.
