Making Connections At The CTIA Wireless Show

The CTIA Wireless Show was in full swing last week in Orlando, Florida, and judging from the products showcased, the wireless industry is lining up to challenge Apple's iPhone -- a device that won't be available until June. And a fight they will have. Analysts are predicting Apple will generate $6 billion in iPhone revenue in its first year on the market.

Knowing how popular Apple devices are to today's gadget crazed consumer, many of the companies at CTIA are taking the gloves off. "We fear no one" scoffs Sony-Ericsson's Miles Flint, adding, "It's going to be good for the segment as a whole that more people are coming in." Indeed, more people are coming to introduce their innovative technology.

LG and Verizon Wireless, exhibited the $199 priced VX9400 cell phone that they say will provide high-quality, instant programming of eight television channels with no download time on its side twistable screen.

And designed to be the ultimate social networking tool, MySpace-friendly Helio offers the "Ocean," a dual-slide device featured with an integrated QWERTY keyboard that switches from phone mode to text messaging with a quick twist of the hand. Sony-Ericcson is also ready to enter the ring with Apple with its W580 Walkman cell phone. It has MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+ compatibility and up to 20 hours playtime.
