CTIA WIRELESS 2010 is now history and the only thing that's left for us is to summarize the interesting things. And to be honest, this year's CTIA did not offer us so much excitement and everything pretty much ended on day one. And here is a summary of the most important news.
The American carrier Verizon said that its LTE network will cover about 1/3 of the U.S. in 2010. It also officially confirmed that the first LTE devices will show up during the second half of 2011.
The floor was rocked by Sprint, another American carrier, which showcased the HTC EVO 4G as the first phone that will make use of the WiMAX network of the carrier that will spread from coast to coast in 2010. The combination of a 4.3-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.1 and HTC Sense interface is definitely something impressive.
The other very, very interesting device also uses Android 2.1 and has a massive display is the Samsung Galaxy S, which will have extraordinary multimedia capabilities including DivX HD video playback and support for Xvid, FLAC and MKV. Besides, its 5MP camera will be able to shoot 1280 × 720.
So this summarizes the interesting things that managed to grip our attention at CTIA WIRELESS 2010, until it comes the next year with many new things in pocket God willing.
