A giant banner welcomed attendees to CTIA 2009.

CTIA was held in the same Las Vegas Convention Center halls as CES, but it was far less crowded.

True to form, LG had one of the most stunning booths at CTIA. The Arena held center stage.

You also can rely on Kyocera to build an attractive booth. Here, a few of the company's newest handsets sit on a bed of (fake) grass.

NTT DoCoMo displayed some of its sleek Japan-only phones behind glass. Most of these handsets are geared for serious multimedia.

Samsung built a light show out of the vivid displays on its new Impression phone.

You can always find the Samsung phone wall in its booth. Most of these models will actually make it to North America.

We saw the Samsung Blue Earth solar-powered phone for the second time. But, again, it was out of reach behind glass.

Though Nokia announced few phones at the show, it displayed its current lineup in a spacious, colorful booth.

Sony Ericsson had a small presence at CTIA, with just one display in the Ericsson booth. Besides its recent phones, it also has a few eye-catching cell phone speakers.

The HTC booth was plenty busy, but our hopes of a new U.S. Android phone (such an HTC Magic for T-Mobile) went unfulfilled. You could see the new HTC Snap, however.

You could play with PCD's latest models in its booth. At center is the AT&T Quickfire.

At the ZTE booth there was a special display for the company's North American phones, like the C78 and C79.

After making a big splash at CTIA two years ago, Alcatel assumed a much quieter presence this year. We're still waiting, though not with baited breath, for the company's phones to arrive in the United States.

You could drive a race car simulator at the Powerwave booth. Powerwave makes antenna and cellular-repeater equipment.

The BlackBerry App World was big news at the show.
