The CTIA fall show used to be known as CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment, but for 2010, it is called CTIA Enterprise & Applications, which shows a deeper emphasis on business and development of mobile applications.
Still, we expect quite a bit of news on the consumer front. Sprint and Samsung are planning announcements, and we won't be surprised if we see more news about tablets, especially with the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook announcement from last week and the impending arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Perhaps more interestingly, Microsoft is skipping the show this year, maybe to concentrate more on the Windows Phone 7 announcements we expect next week. There will also be an event hosted by Motorola on Tuesday evening, though we don't yet know what will be announced. And of course, there will be plenty of new and improved applications.
The show officially starts Wednesday and runs through Friday. Preshow events will be happening in San Francisco at the Moscone Center tomorrow. Our colleague Maggie Reardon has written up a show preview from a business and carrier perspective, which I invite you to read as well. We'll be covering the show all week, and you can catch all the latest CTIA news right here.
