As CTIA Enterprise & Applications comes to a close, there were a few big trends that defined the event: the continued explosion of Android phones, more competition in the 4G wars, and renewed reports that the iPhone was coming to Verizon Wireless (we’ll believe it when we see it). After spending three days scouring the show floor and meeting with lots of companies, we narrowed our favorite products and services to five top selections. So without further ado here is our favorite smart phone, app, wireless accessory, enabling technology, and software from the fall CTIA show, products that have the potential to shake up the mobile tech industry and inspire even more innovation.
In a sea of new Android phones, the Motorola Droid Pro stands out because it was built from the ground up for business users. Ideal for those looking to step up from a BlackBerry, this device sports a comfortable keyboard that’s always front and center, plus QuickOffice Mobile Suite for editing documents on the go.
The Droid Pro also covers all the security bases, with remote wipe and password management, as well as data encryption right on the device (coming early next year). While the 3.1-inch screen is on the small side, this 1-GHz handset has plenty of power.
