Best of CTIA 2011: People's Pick
CTIA Wireless 2011 followed one of the biggest stirs in the industry after AT&T announced it's about to acquire T-Mobile USA. But whatever that change brings, one thing is certain – CTIA pushed the envelope on 3D and gizmo thickness for all carriers and manufacturers. And changed this year's show was – T-Mobile's chief executive cancelled his presence in the four-carrier CEO roundtable discussion, while international presence was also hindered by the tragic events in Japan.
Does this mean we didn't have a landslide of announcements? Not at all – Sprint's HTC EVO 3D and AT&T's LG Thrill 4G were unveiled with much fanfare from the third dimension and the ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy Tab in its 10.1-inch and 8.9-inch forms all impressed us. But we've had our say and now we're eager to hear your opinion about the devices present at the show. Did the 3D handsets steal the show? Or was it the tablet innovation that took your heart away? Feel welcome to voice your opinion in the poll below and truly decide which gadget ruled this year's CTIA!

Id say the EVO 3D, however with plans to get the Thunderbolt i really dont think a network change would idea me to leave the network, i have no problem with Sprint but with the 4G compare verizon has the cake and eats it too, plus no kickstand! wtf....ohh well, great device but at this time in my life i can do more with the T-Bolt

I am the only one who feels 3D phones are nothing but a cheap marketing ploy, just like 3D TV and Crest 3D White toothpaste?

are you kidding, Crest 3D White is the best!! I am excited for 3D because it gives you more options (if you don't like it just turn it off). Besides, if it looks like the Nintendo 3DS then I will be happy :)

is the phone screen its self 3D or does it just take 3D photos and videos?

3d is not a "marketing ploy" but something new to add to phones in 2011. something that you cant get out of simply dowloading an app. i believe its more "innovative" than a "scam".

It may look interesting, but it's still a gimmick. If phone makers weren't already shoving it at us saying "look at this! isn't it cool?!", trying to one-up each other, would we be clambering for it?

looks like sprint wins CTIA '11!! bonus being a sprint cust/employee myself.

EVO 3D DAMN not too hard to say.

voting for the Sidekick 4G - a whole new HIGH for mid-range phones. New standard in full QWERTY phones! still have Qs, but many were answered at CTIA. Hope it comes out before the May 31 Microsoft/Danger DOA date for older Sidekicks.
