New phones and services herald start of CTIA
On a sultry New Orleans afternoon today, AT&T took over a century-old Garden District mansion to open the 2012 CTIA. Yes, the annual wireless confab doesn’t formally open until tomorrow morning, but the news already is coming fast and furious. And though I don’t arrive in The Big Easy until tomorrow either, a big CNET team is on the ground by the Mississippi. Here are the highlights of what they saw today.
Though trade shows like CTIA are about much more than hardware, it’s the hardware that excites the most. If you read Jessica Dolcourt’s preview from last week, you’ll know that the 2012 show promises to deliver fewer new phones than in past years. That may still true, but I was glad to see that we got two new handsets today.
