On-the-scene coverage of CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2005. Exclusive photos and hot info from the show floor in San Francisco. Announcements from Kyocera, Audiovox, Cingular, and more.
CTIA's Wireless IT & Entertainment trade show took place this week in San Francisco. This annual show is much smaller than CTIA's spring show, yet still never fails to provide a handful of interesting announcements for the US market. When it first started, the show focused on mobile data and the enterprise market, but in recent years has expanded to include other types of data services and content, such as entertainment.
The focus is still squarely on data services and content, not phones per se. That's why many larger phone makers like Motorola, Samsung, and LG don't even bother to exhibit on the show floor. But each year a few smaller manufacturers like Kyocera and Audiovox (now UTStarcom) take advantage of the silence from the big boys, and announce a few phones while the industry is gathered in one place and they can get some attention. This year was no exception.
