CTIA celebrity sightings

Two former presidents Ludacris, and Gallagher headline CTIA.

Compared with the star-studded CES show, CTIA tends to be a little slim on celebrity sightings. But the show does manage to catch a fair share of somebodys. The presidential tag team of George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton gave a keynote address this morning and then cruised the show floor with a stop at the Sony Ericsson booth. The Foo Fighters performed at an LG party, Hootie and the Blowfish jammed at the Alcatel bash, while Bonnie Cha and I caught Ludacris at a Sprint soiree. Yet the strangest performance came from self-proclaimed "comedy legend" Gallagher. He attended a Samsung press breakfast where he showed off a couple of the company's new phones and made a rather bad attempt at a Bluetooth joke. Unfortunately, it was only after I left that I thought of taking his picture next to the bowl of watermelon slices.
