Yup, it looks like the CTIA show in New Orleans will the next place that the manufacturers smartphones will be showcased. It's May 7th thru the 10th. A long way off for me, I have a NE2 (my last, I'm guessing) available on March 15th.
Luckily my "X" is still doing a "bang-up" job for me. (he said with his fingers crossed)
Hopefully there will be some new smartphones announced or at least rumored before CTIA. There was nothing from Motorola at MWC, so I'm hoping that Google/Motorola Mobility have something coming down the pipe that will absolutely blow us away. Hopefully anyway.
The government can't give you anything until it first takes it from someone else!
