It was back in September when we got an information AT&T is launching the TerreStar GENUS. So I was kinda surprised to see just how long it took TerreStar to actually release the device to the general public.Anyway, the satellite-cellular hybrid smartphone that bring mobile coverage through satellite connection when the cellular network is unavailable is now available for purchase through Simplexity and as you can presume it requires both AT&T’s and TerreStar Networks’ plans.

The new launched TerreStar GENUS dual-mode cellular / satellite smartphone uses AT&T’s new Satellite Augmented Mobile Service, and now it’s available for enterprise, government and small business customers. The device is specially created to be used as a everyday mobile device.
The TerreStar Genus hand set is a powerful dual-mode device that uses cellular wireless capability and satellite access capability as a secondary option for voice, data and messaging. Users will have access to satellite wireless communications to expand voice and data roaming coverage in the United States, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and in territorial waters.

the GENUS is a Windows Mobile 6.5-powered device with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity support, GPS (of course), 2-megapixel camera, full QWERTY keyboard, 100MB of onboard storage, media player and so on. In terms of the size, it measures 4.7 x 2.5 x 0.8/0.6 inches and has a weight of 4.6 oz…
