CNET’s Best of CTIA 2012
NEW ORLEANS–After three furious days, CTIA 2012 has come to a close. Though a visit to the Crescent City always is enjoyable, this year’s event was a little quieter than in past years. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t see some very cool stuff. Here’s what the CNET team picked as the Best of 2012.
Best phone: Samsung Galaxy S III
Samsung may have unveiled its Samsung Galaxy S III flagship phone days before CTIA 2012 kicked off, but CTIA was our first chance to handle it. And at the end of the day, the Android Ice Cream Sandwich mega handset was still the best phone we saw here at the show.
Sporting an extra-large 4.8-inch HD AMOLED screen, an 8-megapixel camera with the works, and a quad-core processor on this global version, the phone will be hard to beat — especially when you also take into account software add-ons like enhanced voice controls and phone-to-phone sharing for files of up to 1GB in size.
