TerreStar Networks AT&T Satellite Phone is Here

September 28, 2010

Last year I conducted an interview with TerreStar Networks CTO CTO Dennis Matteson and he showed off his company's exciting new smartphone which works on 3G and Satellite networks allowing customers to utilize the best network for the call depending on circumstances. The video interview below shows you how this impossibly small device looks a lot like a Blackberry or any other smartphone which has a keyboard. This gadget really sets a new standard for sat phones and unlike most satellite phones, you won't feel like you are from the Jurassic when you take it out in public.



As satellites are farther than cell towers, you can expect this world phone to go through battery fairly quickly when communicating with them. In addition there is bluetooth, WiFi and lots of other goodies as part of the package.

Cindy Waxer covers the details on this phone's delay and release on TMCnet.







RIM Enters Tablet Space with Playbook

September 27, 2010

At seven inches in size the new PlayBook tablet from RIM is a hybrid smartphone/tablet - smaller than the iPad but bigger than your favorite smartphone. With front and rear cameras and multitasking support the device leapfrogs the iPad in many ways. And let's not forget RIM's legendary enterprise support.

But RIM devices have never been as cool as Apple's but I would argue the back button on the device makes up for any of the challenges it has on the coolness front. Apple users understand how maddening it is to click on a link in an email, get a web browser then have to hit the home and email icons to get back to their original email.

Metaswitch Forum 2010 Final Thoughts

September 25, 2010

I had a chance to eat breakfast this morning with Metaswitch CEO Kevin DeNuccio (pictured) and CTO Chris Mairs as well as some attendees and it was great to hear how much money is being spent by utilities to provide ultra-fast FTTH and smart grid applications. The good news is smart meters are slowly making their way to customer sites as the smart grid gets built out. In addition, DeNuccio told me after a time period with uncertainty the broadband stimulus dollars are starting to flow by the hundreds of millions to some of the carriers at the event.

The panel I spoke on Define Your Decade went pretty well from what I gathered - we talked about many of the future trends in the market such as cloud, social networking, UC and video.

ITEXPO West 2010 News and Interviews

September 22, 2010

ITEXPO is almost here - and there will be lots of news broken at this event based upon what my team tells me. In addition, some of the early news on the event is beginning to break and I hope to see you October 4-6, 2010 in Los Angeles.

Check out this article on Aculab's new products, AMS Server & ApplianX IP Gateway 2.2 to be released at the show. AMS Server gives developers more choices for creating telephony-based applications through its API support of both C# and Python, the preferred languages of many business-oriented application writers.

So Many Reasons to Attend ITEXPO in 13 Days

Dear Colleague,

Facebook Phone

September 19, 2010

Why your next smartphone may be free

Speculation abounds that Facebook is working on a phone and it seems more than logical to assume it will be based on Android and sold via carriers. In fact one would imagine AT&T is trying like crazy to get an exclusive deal with the company as they desperately need a new hot product when the iPhone potentially becomes available on other networks.

In fact, it would be surprising if carriers haven't been chasing Facebook down to get such a phone with mass appeal out of the gate.
