CTIA Wireless 2008 News Roundup

April 3, 2008

This week (April 1-3) was the CTIA Wireless 2008 show in Las Vegas. All week TMCnet has been reporting on news from the show, which is put on (as the name suggests) by CTIA, an organization whose acronym formerly stood for “Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Assocation,” but now simply goes by CTIA  —  The Wireless Association.   The show’s Web site has a full roster of news highlights from this week, but here are a few that caught my eye from TMCnet’s coverage.   Nortel Shows How Carriers Can Deliver Better, Faster Networks to Reach True Mobile Broadband   40,000 Reasons for Wireless Recycling   Mobile Industry Adds 22 Million Net New Customers in 2007   AT & T Intros New Music Application and Extended Napster Coverage   Sprint and Sierra Wireless to Launch Nation's Smallest Mobile Broadband USB Modem   Ericsson demonstrates world-first end-to-end HSPA Evolution technology for speeds of up to 42 Mbps   For even more coverage of the show, check out the blogs for Rich Tehrani and Greg Galitzine.
