CTIA coverage

I wish I could be in Orlando for CTIA. Since I'm not there, I'm following the updates from CTIA on their website here.

Here are some interesting findings from CTIA:

CTIA-The Wireless Association® Announces Semi-Annual Survey Results
Wireless Data Traffic Increased by 110%; MMS Increased by 64%; Texts Increased by 31%
CTIA-The Wireless Association® today released its bi-annual survey, which tracks data submitted by carriers from January- December 2010, documenting wireless trends in subscribership, usage, revenue and capital investment. The survey results were announced by CTIA’s President and CEO Steve Largent on the keynote stage during International CTIA WIRELESS® 2011 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. With dramatic increases in smartphone adoption, wireless data traffic and SMS and MMS messaging, the survey is yet another proof point that the U.S. wireless industry needs more spectrum so that service providers can continue to meet growing consumer demand.
CTIA-The Wireless Association® Redesigns
CTIA-The Wireless Association® today announced the redesign of, the association’s website to help people with disabilities, seniors and their families find the right accessible wireless products and services. As part of the wireless industry’s continued commitment to serving people of all abilities, is the initial website that consumers should visit for information about accessible wireless handsets and services. For the first time in the U.S., consumers can “Find a Phone” by searching and comparing the accessibility features of a variety of wireless handsets through the Mobile Manufacturer Forum’s (MMF) Global Accessibility Reporting Initiative (GARI).

CTIA-The Wireless Association® is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984. Membership in the association includes wireless carriers and their suppliers, as well as providers and manufacturers of wireless data services and products.
