Every spring CNET travels to the annual Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association show to bring you the latest news from the cell phone world. Yet you may be surprised that CTIA also holds an event in the fall. The CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment show is smaller than the spring event and is more focused on content and services, but it's still a forum for manufacturers to introduce new cell phones and for carriers to roll out new services. This year CNET editors Kent German and Bonnie Cha travel to Los Angeles to bring you the latest news and hottest products.
The CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2006 conference taking place this week in Los Angeles focuses not only on wireless data technologies for business but also on what the industry anticipates will be hot markets for wireless entertainment services, from music downloads to photography and video to interactive games.
Kyocera keeps to its "Go easy" theme by introducing two very basic phones at the fall CTIA show in Los Angeles. Without any fancy features such as cameras, music players, or Bluetooth, the K122 and the K132 are all about making calls.
