Next week I will be heading to Las Vegas for CTIA Wireless to check out the latest in cell phone and mobile tech news. We always expect to be in interesting company in a city like Vegas, but with John Edwards and Fred Thompson giving a keynote at the conference, there is now no doubt. The former presidential candidates will take center stage on April 3rd, the final day of the conference, at 9:30 a.m. What exactly they will be discussing hasn’t been detailed. BlackBerry versus Windows Mobile? The coming of WiMAX? Android’s invasion of the market? Our guess is the two will discuss the recent 700-MHz auction as well as broadband issues such as net neutrality. It could make for an interesting debate between the two as John Edwards has come out being in favor of net neutrality and even wrote a letter to the FCC, urging it to set “bid and service rules” on the 700-MHz spectrum auction, ensuring non-discrimination, and giving smaller providers the chance to bring broadband to underserved areas. Fred Thompson, on the other hand, hasn’t taken a firm stand. We’ll be blogging from the keynote address and throughout CTIA. Stay tuned.
