CTIA Fall 2011 wrap-up

Yet another fall edition of CTIA is over, and Android rules the roost once again. We saw AT&T let loose a few phones with the green robot OS, took a closer hands-on look at the latest shiny phones, and even played with a tablet or two.

CTIA's fall show fights for relevancy

Even though we saw several new phones at CTIA, consumer attention flutters elsewhere to the arrival of the iPhone 4S, and rumors of the Motorola Droid Razr and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Even the phones that were announced weren't too much to get excited about. Should there be a CTIA fall show at all?

Pantech Jest 2, Pantech Hotshot hands-on

At CTIA in San Diego, we caught sight of the Pantech Jest 2 and the Pantech Hotshot, both of which we have yet to see in person even though they have already been announced.

Another season, another CTIA. The CTIA Enterprise & Applications show has always been smaller than the larger, more high-profile CTIA Wireless show in the spring. This week's San Diego show lost its headline act when Samsung Electronics and Google cancelled their big announcement, but other companies such as AT&T and T-Mobile stepped in to fill the void.
