In addition to these either brand-new or soon-to-be-released smartphones, others such as the Palm Pre are finding new life at CTIA, as new carriers announce that they will carry devices once the exclusive domain of their rivals. This combination of features and technologies promises to make 2010 an interesting year for mobile competition.
