This week it’s only fitting that we talk about the CTIA trade show and convention at the Sands Expo Center here in Las Vegas, NV for “Wireless Wednesday”. After all, I am here at the show, and I want to share with you some of the cool and exciting things I am seeing here.
Below are just a few things from the show I found interesting–
Digital Wallet from Boost Mobile
Sprint Nextel’s prepaid arm, Boost Mobile, is taking its own stab at the digital wallet. The company on Tuesday unveiled its Boost Mobile Wallet program, which is an Android application that allows its prepaid customers to manage their funds, transfer funds, send money overseas, and pay bills.
Remember Yotaphone, the twin-display Android smartphone (color LCD in front, e-ink in back)? Today at CTIA in Las Vagas, Yota devices, the company behind the innovative handset, introduced Ruby, a sleek LTE hotspot with a small e-ink screen. We don’t usually get too excited about such devices, but Ruby looks like something out of Jony Ive‘s workshop, with some interesting features to match. The design recalls the iPod mini but is made of white plastic instead of aluminum.
