SAN FRANCISCO -- CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment -- A tiny little flip phone was the star of the show at this week's CTIA show in San Francisco

The BlackBerry finally stopped clamming up about its Pearl Flip clamshell phone. (See RIM Reveals the Pearl Flip.) And Unstrung was there to see the debut open and close.

Plenty of other stuff happened: Clearwire LLC (Nasdaq: CLWR) took us for a ride, Verizon Wireless really opened up, and Adobe Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: ADBE) made us hate Ashbury. Check the slideshow if you don't believe us! (See CTIA: Steady Rollin' Clearwire , Operators Eye WiMax Femtos, and CTIA: There's a Man .) Enjoy!

Flippin' Sweet

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
