Live report from MobileFocus at TechXNY 2003, which took place in September in New York City. Info and photos of the Sony Ercisson Z200 and Z600, plus the Motorola MPx200, V600, and V810, and much more.
TechXNY is an annual technology event in New York City. It encompasses several trade shows, including PC Expo. Not much at the show usually relates to mobile phones, which is why I skipped the main show floor entirely (and didn't miss much, from what I've heard.)
But there was a press event the night before the show, called MobileFocus, and I was there to check out some hot new phones being displayed publicly in the U.S. for the first time.
Thanks to Amtrak, I was a bit late, and so I didn't get as much quality time with the phones as I would have liked. But I did get plenty of photos.
Sony Ericsson was displaying their recently-announced Z600 and Z200. Motorola was showing its new Microsoft phone - the MPx200, which had just been announced the night before. Motorola was also displaying working models of their upcoming V600 and V810 - two highly-anticipated, high-end clamshells. And finally, Siemens was showing off the latest revision of their SX1 smartphone, and RIM was showing off their new color-display Blackberry.
Read on for my photos and thoughts on all of these phones and more!
