Kyocera cool

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.

No Magic

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.

On display, but not available

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.
