HTCPedia at CTIA
2.5By Reuben Levine May 20, 2013 10:50 PM
You read that right, friends. CTIA is here. While not the largest trade show out there, it's still an important stop for anyone in the wireless market and the overall largest in North America. Set up in the 80's as an international non-profit trade organization, CTIA is a trade show open to both the public and professionals concentrating on wireless communications. The show officially kicks off tomorrow and runs until the 23rd Las Vegas.
And this year, HTC's blood runs through the show. That may sound like an odd statement considering that HTC has literally no public presence at the event. Instead, they've been going about their business behind the scenes. HTC has a presence in the Hospitality Suit, which is closed to the public. Besides that they're a sponsor of the show and their logo can be found on the show badges. The badges, by the way, contain an NFC chip which leads to a download of an app for exchanging information with professional peers.
CTIA's relevance has been questioned recently, so it would be best for everyone if this year goes on without a hitch. Verizon will hold a conference and have a large presence, perhaps to be paired with a major announcement. The HTC One is on everyone's minds, and Verizon has stated that if they announce their version of the One it will come with a bang.
If HTC or Verizon makes a move during the show, we'll have it for you here.
In the meantime, you can fulfill all your HTC needs at the HTCPedia Shop.
