Welcome to CTIA
CTIA occupied the North and Central halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. That's just a small portion of the space that CES normally occupies. Samsung reminded attendees that it had something to show.
Inside the hall
The show floor felt a bit busier than in 2009, but not by much.
Seeking the crowds
Crowds could be found in the most-popular booths, such as Microsoft's. There the company showed demos of Windows Phone 7.
Microsoft also displayed a gallery of Windows phones.
Snowboarder and Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White posed for photos with show attendees.
CTIA's Emerging Tech Awards invited you to vote on a gallery of products that have been nominated for best in show.
Pick a BlackBerry
Never a wallflower, RIM had a large vibrant booth near the entrance to the Central Hall.
Showing off the Galaxy S
Samsung puts its TVs to good use at CTIA. A large video wall promoted its new Galaxy S.
Sammy's new cells
Samsung also displayed new messaging phones like the Samsung Sunburst.
Move over Moto
With just the i1 as its only new cell phone at CTIA, Moto kept a low profile. Its booth sat across from Kyocera's booth.
A party at LG
A DJ entertained the masses at LG's booth.
LG goes green
To emphasize its commitment to eco-friendly phones, LG displayed some of its handsets below the booth floor.
Feeling blue at Nokia
Nokia focused on its Ovi mapping services. The company did not announce a new phones in Las Vegas.
Kyocera goes Android
Kyocera wasn't shy about promoting its new Android handset, the Zio M6000.
A Kyocera concept
Kyocera also showed several concept phones like this Double Clear.
One vendor offered an oxygen bar at its booth.
Sony Ericsson also didn't unveil a new handset at CTIA and it occupied just a corner of the larger Ericsson booth. Yet, we spied the Aspen on display. The handset has an eco-friendly design that's made from recycled materials.
Am I at CTIA or a used car lot?
All kinds of companies exhibit at CTIA. You never know what you'll find.
