CTIA 2010: Final Thoughts

Phil Harvey
3/30/2010

10:40 AM -- What did I see at CTIA 2010? Much more than I can capture in a single post, obviously. But some big themes that stuck out include: Sprint's scramble for subscribers; Clearwire's 4G difference; consumer-friendly marketing; and a rise of content and application aggregators in the fragmented mobile market.



Programming note: The earlier version of this video didn't work because of some technical issue with our video provider. But, thankfully, in situations like this we remember that YouTube is reliable and predictable (and free).

I'd add to this fine list the meme that "more spectrum is needed soon, please." While Sprint and Clearwire have plenty of running room for their WiMax plans, all the other operators were in a chorus, asking the FCC, Congress, and people on the street, brother, can you spare some bandwidth.


Should be an interesting battle to watch, as the telcos try to wrest the spectrum from the broadcasters. Might be worth attending NAB to see what the reply is.
