Day one starts at CTIA.

Well the CTIA conference starts at 9am, but the exhibition hall doesn't open until 11am. I thought I was going to get a bit of a lie in and meander up to the Conference Center by 10am. Well the best laid plans of mice and men...

As I was approaching the area of the conference center I was informed by some very helpful signs that "WEST PARKING LOT FULL" so I had to use the south car park. Not a problem as the two sections were connected by a walk way and there was a shuttle between the two.

Wrong. The two were connected but the distance from where I parked the car to the press registration area was nearly a mile and there were literally hundreds of people waiting for a shuttle, and (you guessed it) no shuttles in sight!!!

So off I set to walk, in 83 degree heat, to make my way to the correct conference center. 15 minutes later I reached the entrance only to find that I needed to walk for another 5 minutes to get to the press room. Once registered I grabbed a show guide and started marking out the companies I wanted to visit. The show is massive, rows numbered 10 to 6000 and 10 to 20 booths in each row... I needed to do some careful planning.

Whilst I was going through the list Lutz sent me a message requesting that I look out for the new HTC Shift that was announced at the show. I searched and searched but couldnt find the device. I thought that maybe while walking the halls it would turn up. So begins day one...
