Close out lightsquared takeover, then what's his move?

I personally,believe that Regen is.not really interested in,running a full wireless provider service, rather I see his agenda as developing a high quality, high capacity mobile data network with which he could utilize much the.way that lightsquared's vision explained, a very innovative and unique vision in which device manufacturers or more appropriately service providers could.attach their products to this data network so to offer an already inclusive fully functioning offering.
