It's a wrap! CTIA fall 2007 is officially over. As the wireless world flees San Francisco today, we bring the highlights of the show.

Though new product announcements were relatively few, we did see a handful of new smart phones. Bonnie Cha blogged about the new Samsung Blackjack II for AT&T and displayed it in all is glory in a video. She also covered the new smart phones form I-mate in a blog and in a video and she wrapped up all the glorious new smart phones in a slide show.

Nicole Lee showed us concept phones from Fastap and the new LG CU515 . She also gave us a close-up look at the new LG Venus and Voyager for Verizon Wireless. Nicole also gave us a slide show of the new LG handsets.

I didn't spy any new handsets at the show but I did get a hands on with the Venus and Voyager , the Sidekick Slide , the Sony Ericsson W910 , and the Motorola Rokr E9 and the Razr2 V8 Luxury Edition . I also wrote on the changes to AT&T Music and told you about Virgin Mobile's new Studio V and when we can expect Verizon's Wireless' V Cast Mobile TV in the Bay Area . And as for video, I checked out the Slide, the W910 and K850, the Moto U9 and Razr2 V8 Luxury Edition and the Nokia 5310 and 5610 Xpress Music models. On that note, I can report that I like the new Nokia models just as much as I did the first time I saw them . I covered all the new cell phones in a slide show while CNET photographer Corinne Schulze caught the sights form the show floor.

Outside of the CNET Reviews teams, Jessica Dolcourt of Download.com blogged on a plethora of new cell phone apps including Guitar Hero Mobile and Migo's video-music-syncing software. News.com's Tom Krazit attended a session that pondered the future of the iPhone while Ina Fried covered the Microsoft news at the show. And finally, Josh Lowensohn of Webware.com told us about AOL's new mobile services .

So that's it from the CTIA fall 2007 show in San Francisco. See you next April in Las Vegas for CTIA 2008.
