I used a slew of technology at the show but two products are worth special mention. The first is the Flip Mino HD video recorder which excelled in low-light conditions and allowed me to take rapid and high-quality videos of the show. Thanks Cisco for providing me with this device.
In addition, I must say that without Verizon EVDO I would have been lost at this event and although thousands of people converged on the conference, the service allowed rapid uploads of multi-megabyte video files.
It is worth mentioning that many people commented that an iPhone was an obligatory accessory at the expo. In addition, I noticed many people standing near electrical outlets with thin white power cords which seemed way too short for adults.
So perhaps Verizon Wireless didn’t see their network taxed too greatly by attendees.
Yes, there was wireless broadband but the WiFi literally choked during peak times. EVDO can choke at times too but it did perform admirably during the event.
