MobileCON 2012 Photos: Dan's Tour

6:00 PM -- Hey, I survived the latest CTIA fall show and all I got to show for it were these lousy bags under my eyes!

In truth, there wasn't a whole lot of 4G news out of this show, even though the Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) and Verizon Wireless Long Term Evolution (LTE) updates led the way. (See MobileCON 2012: Verizon Beats 2012 4G Target and MobileCON 2012: Sprint Gets a 4G Tablet & More NFC.)

I tended to see the updates as marking lines on the door-frame that we can measure each carrier's 4G growth against at the end of next quarter. Surely, that will give Sprint enough time to hit its 100-market LTE target. (See 2013: Richer Services on 4G?) Still, click below for images of Chinese stautes, muffins and the huge Samsung Corp. Galaxy Note II: The device that is surely the muffin top of the mobile world, anyway.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
