From the National Journal: LightSquared has chosen Sharp to make compatible smartphones, 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.

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.
