And so we enter the aftermath of this year’s CTIA Wireless 2010. As far as we see it, there were only two major factors from this year’s event. The first being the HTC EVO 4G handset from Sprint, and the second being Verizon’s self-imposed exile from the event.
This was a great opportunity for Verizon to unleash their next major handset after the DROID, and in the process, potentially prizing away phone owners who were adamant on picking up the next version of the iPhone – if it lands this Summer.
Judging from our feedback over the last few days, this was Verizon’s big chance – and they blew it. With so much disappointment lingering in the air at the moment – is it possible for them to recover?
With not even a sniff of when Verizon will release the handsets – have they possibly created a situation where they will be victims of their own downfall?
Let us know where you stand on this. Are you still hopeful Verizon will release either handset soon, or has the lack of a CTIA announcement pushed you over the edge?
