Greenfield Satellite Operators to Offer Dual-Mode Cellular Services, but ABI Research Suspects a Hidden 4G Agenda

Source: ABI research
New satellite communications operators such as TerreStar Networks and SkyTerra Communications will offer dual-mode (satellite and cellular) services in North America that are enabled with next-generation satellite technologies and supported by dual-mode smartphones. Subsequently, new ABI Research forecasts suggest, some three million satellite-capable LTE smartphones will be shipped in North America in 2012. But, according to the same research, the promising forecast is contingent upon the 4G strategies of US cellular network operators.
