Former Sun Labs chief believes in spreading cell phone service everywhere (video)

I remember interviewing Glenn Edens when he was the head of Sun Labs, the research arm of Sun Microsystems. He has since moved on to a very interesting startup, Range Networks, that appeared on stage at the DEMO Fall 2010 conference this week in Santa Clara, Calif. Edens says Range Networks wants to get cell phones in the hands of everybody in the world and hopes its technology can lead to service fees that are dramatically lower than what we see today. Today, cell phone service has been stuck at around $35 a month; Edens believes that can be lowered to $2 or $3 a month.
