After 3 days in San Diego, I am getting ready to head back home, so here is a recap of everything from the last few days.  My plan of attack for posting was simple – send in photos to my blog from my Verizon Blackberry 8330 Curve and AT&T Apple iPhone 3GS, as well as post longer articles of multi-photo composition using my Sony Cybershot, Mac Book Pro, and Sprint EVDO card.  The nice thing about this approach was the ability to send in photos on the fly as I saw interesting things, but then provide additional commentary and higher-res shots as well.

Wednesday – Day 1
Wednesday morning started out like each morning of the show, with a keynote address for some of the industry leaders speaking about the state of wireless, and their organization.  I posted these photos from the keynote:
Keynote about to start
2010 CTIA convention dates and locations
FCC Chairman Genachowski on stage
AT&T CEO de la Vega on stage
Yahoo Mobile SVP Ko on stage
Tax propaganda at the keynote
More Day 1 Keynote photos
Then I was off to hit the show floor, where I was able to snap some shots and post this article:

To cap off the day, I attended the Mobile Focus event presented by Pepcom where I had some additional time with many of the great devices that are out there.  Manufacturers included RIM, Nokia, HTC and Motorola.  Here are the posts that I created from the event:
Samsung Moment
Garmin Nuvifone
Motorola CLIQ
Novatel MiFi
Palm Pixi

Thursday – Day 2
Thursday started out with a keynote consisting of a panel discussion with the Co-Founder and CEO of Qualcomm, as well as the CTO of AT&T.  Here was the post from the keynote:

Thursday afternoon, I sat down to record a special podcast with Dieter Bohn fromSmartphone Experts and Kevin Michaluk from Crackberry.  We covered the latest from Blackberry, Nokia, Windows Mobile and Android as well as some great commentary about the main themes of the convention.  The show can be downloaded directly here:

Friday – Day 3
I spent most of the day Friday working on catching up from all the content that I had recorded and created throughout the week.  This was another great experience, and I am very happy to have been able to attend the show again this year.  There really is nothing like a cellular trade show for a Cell Phone Junkie.
