America’s largest wireless tradeshow starts next week

citawireless_logo The largest wireless tradeshow in North America starts Wednesday in Las Vegas. Typically there is a lot of news that comes out of this conference, especially for devices and services for US carriers, and handsets headed for America. Some of the headline speakers include Mike Lazaridis the CEO of RIM (maker of the Blackberry), Robbie Bach who is the head of the Entertainment & Devices Division of Microsoft, and strangely enough Billy Crystal who is a comdian (i don’t know what he is planning to talk about). There was also some controversy surrounding another headliner at CTIA, Al Gore, former US Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize Winner initially wanted to ban the press from his keynote, but was forced to back down after an uproar from the chattering class threatened to overshadow his appearance. I wonder what he was planning on saying that was so secret he didn’t want anyone outside of the industry to hear?

Might this be the coming out party for Android? I seriously doubt it, after Android had such a poor showing at Mobile World Congress, but hope springs eternal. Pay attention next week for much more news.
