Why There's a Bunch of Mobile Phone News This Week

Expect to see a whole bunch of new mobile phones—and stuff for mobile phones, like Skype on iPhone and new Opera Mobile—splattered all over Giz this week.

That's because the spring CTIA wireless show is going down in Las Vegas, starting April 1. Unlike Mobile World Congress in the fall, CTIA is a U.S.-oriented mobile phone shebang, so everything you see will be for America, fuck yeah. Oh, in case you're wondering, CTIA doesn't actually stand for anything anymore—it used to be the Cellular Telephone Industries Association, but now the organisation's official name is CTIA - The Wireless Association. Dumb, right?

Some people have already started dropping their wares, but expect some more throughout the week, including live coverage. [CTIA [email protected]]
