CTIA Scorecard: Who were the winners and losers at CTIA?


The FierceWireless editorial team was in full force in Las Vegas last week covering all aspects of the International CTIA 2009 conference. If you were there, you may have seen Jason Ankeny, Phil Goldstein, Lynnette Luna, Dan O'Shea, Mike Dolan and me as we hustled to press conferences, attended the keynote addresses, moderated panels and visited with companies in our press room or on the show floor. Check out our photos of  the keynotes, panel discussions, handsets and devices and of course the Fierce party at Pure nightclub here.

Now that we've been home for a few days, the Fierce team has had time to contemplate some of the themes of the show and figure out what some of the news announcements mean to the industry. Clearly, some companies at CTIA  emerged stronger than ever. Likewise, there were those that failed to get their message heard amidst the noise and hype.

Thus, the Fierce editorial team decided to compile a scorecard on the companies we think emerged as the winners and losers at last week's confab. As always, we welcome your suggestions and criticisms. Please use the comment section to tell us which companies made an impression on you (either positively or negatively) last week at CTIA.  --Sue
