LightSquared Signs Sharp To Make Compatible Gadgets

October 3, 2011

LightSquared, the company struggling to build a wholesale broadband network using both satellite and land-based technology, said Monday it had chosen Sharp to make compatible smart phones, tablets and other gadgets to use its network.

"Sharp has a rich history of producing unique products that push the extremes of design and functionality, and we're proud that they will be developing innovative devices for LightSquared's 4G-LTE network," LightSquared CEO Sanjiv Ahuja said in a statement.

"LightSquared's wholesale-only business model and open network will provide Sharp with a platform from which they can aggressively expand into the U.S. wireless market with an exciting portfolio of smartphones and tablets."

Most recently, LightSquared promised it would create 75,000 jobs if its network was approved, but its plans are on hold because of evidence its transmission could interfere with GPS devices.
