    My Trip Report

    Hi all. For those that have never heard of this show, it's pretty much the biggest wireless/telecom show in America. This will probably be a non-gaming report as I am here for a trade show and am pretty slammed with meetings but I will be uploading pics of the Cosmopolitan hospitality suite, food, as well as any interesting wireless devices and accessories that they will allow me to take pictures of as well as any interesting vendor events I will be attending. I will be checking into the Cosmopolitan in the morning and will head over to the show floor at the Sands.

    Have Fun! Hope to see some cool MiFi / korean tablets.

    Back when I worked for Verizon Wireless, way back in the day. I remember the CTIA and Mobile World Congress back when they were meaningful shows and the wireless phone industry was less consolidated. Everyone had their new cool design take. Nokia, Erikson, Blackberry, and Motorola were all the product leaders and the Razor was the hottest device to ever come out (pre iPhone days). Now its just here's my version of an Android device and here's the iPhone.
    Not to mention the shit ton of swag we got, including trialing devices or modems for development.

    Here's my first wireless data device.

    @stevie and sindustry: I hate you both.

    @funkhouser: I used to have one of those too.

    I'm sure there will still be a bunch of vendors dedicated to selfie sticks.

    Way too many hiccups this morning with that reception suite. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to a west end penthouse.
