Google Android, HTC, Samsung, LG: The Best of CTIA 2010

by Nicholas Kolakowski
CTIA Wireless 2010 saw major companies rolling out a number of smartphones and mobile services, aiming to either consolidate or expand their market share in an ever-more-competitive arena. Among the higher-profile announcements: Sprint's HTC Evo 4G, a 4G-capable smartphone that the company hopes will become a must-have device for its speed and multimedia capabilities, and Samsung's Galaxy S, with a screen designed to take advantage of not only video and image, but also e-texts. Google Android seemed to run on many of the newer devices being displayed, while Microsoft showed off a prototype of its Windows Phone 7 Series OS. With the smartphone market generally expected to keep expanding, these devices have the potential to drastically affect their companies' revenues going forward—and allow them to compete for both consumer and business dollars.
