Terrestar GenusIt would appear that another world’s first in electronics has been made as AT&T is launching the TerreStar Genus, a smartphone that combines both standard cellular phone connectivity alongside satellite connectivity.  This phone is aimed at subscribers in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, specifically for government, energy, utility, and transportation officials. 

The Terrestar Genus uses Windows Mobile, and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2.6 inch touchscreen. As for radios, it packs in GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, and HSDPA, along with that whole satellite thing.  It will be available early 2010, but no price has been announced.
