LightSquared today announced that it will collaborate with hardware maker Sharp to bring Long Term Evolution 4G-enabled smartphones, tablets, and other devices to market. The devices can be marketed and/or sold by LightSquared's growing list of wholesale customers, which plan to use LightSquared's forthcoming LTE network to offer their own goods and services. LightSquared has signed more than a dozen such partners, though it is currently still resolving interference issues related to the U.S.'s GPS systems and equipment. The Federal Communications Commission has yet to grant LightSquared definitive permission to operate its LTE network, which will be deployed in L-band spectrum.

Uh oh.

I know Sharp made the Kin 1 and Kin 2 phones for Verizon. Does anyone know if they've made anything that wasn't horrible for anyone?
