Everyone's Releasing Phones For The Holidays

Wired News has a short report covering some of the happenings at CTIA this year where they point out that just about everyone is trying to bring out cool phones for the holidays, believing that plenty of folks are willing to upgrade to funkier phones this year. Considering it wasn’t so long ago that the industry was worried that everyone had everything they needed from a phone and would never upgrade again, it sounds like that was a bit shortsighted. So, now, the question is whether or not these new feature-filled phones can attract more than just the geek early adopter types who drool over features (like me) and convince the everyday consumer who claims they just want a basic phone that works.
