Live daily coverage of CTIA Wireless 2004, North America's premier cell phone event. Exclusive photos and hot info fron the show floor in Atlanta. Major announcements from Kyocera, Motorola, Nokia, Siemens, LG, and more.

CTIA Wireless is North America's premier cell phone event. In past years, the event was associated closely with CDMA and TDMA, due to the dominanace of those standards in the Americas. But with the recent rise of GSM in this part of the world, CTIA Wireless has become a more diverse show. And with the recent emergence of EDGE, PTT, and EV-DO as U.S.-centric technologies, CTIA Wireless is quickly becoming one of the world's most important technology events.

This year, Atlanta is the host city. Last year's show in New Orleans saw such exciting announcements as Verizon's plans to launch EV-DO commercially, and LG's first GSM phones for the U.S. New phones announced included the Samsung A600, Sanyo 8100, Kyocera Slider, Audiovox 8900, and Danger's color-display Hiptop.

This year's show is expected to see the launch of even more new phones, including the Kyocera Koi, Audiovox 8610, and a whopping 14 new models from LG, including the VX-8000, the country's first EV-DO phone.

Last year's hot topics were Push-To-Talk and camera phones. If last week's announcements at the CeBIT show in Hannover are any indication, megapixel camera phones will be 2004's hot topic. Two other technologies expected to grab headlines are EDGE and EV-DO. And finally, with AT&T Wireless planning to launch WCDMA in several cities as early as July, it's possible that America's first WCDMA phones could be unveiled at CTIA.

Check back throughout the week for Phone Scoop's daily reports from the show floor in Atlanta.
