LightSquared has recently signed hardware contracts with Qualcomm and Nokia. Qualcomm will provide a mobile chip set that is compatible with LightSquared's planned Long Term Evolution network in the 1600MHz band. Qualcomm's chip will also support satellite services. Nokia has agreed to provide LightSquared with mobile devices to access and use the LTE network when it launches in 2011. Nokia didn't specify exactly what types of devices are in the works, but noted that everything from phones to tablets is being considered. LightSquared also signed deals with AnyData and BandRich to provided embedded modules and USB modems. Nokia Siemens Networks is building LightSquared's LTE network, which is scheduled for launch during the second half of 2011. LightSquared will trial LTE in Baltimore, Denver, Las Vegas and Phoenix, and plans to cover 92% of the U.S. population by 2015.
