Smartphone Experts at CTIA 2009 -- Got iPhone News?

TiPb is just one cog -- elegant and perfectly balanced though it may be -- of the mighty Smartphone Experts network, which also includes Android Central,,, NokiaExperts, TreoCentral, and WMExperts. Editor-in-Chief Dieter Bohn is now on the ground, live an in-person at CTIA 2009 and will be bringing back all the news, for TiPb and almost all the other sites. Almost, because CrackBerry Kevin seems to have stowed away on the trip as well. We don't really expect any iPhone news other than the launch of apps like Skype, but if there is any, our daring duo will bring it home for us.

If you want to keep up with their adventures, keep your browsers tuned to the above sites, and follow them on the Twitter via @backlon and @crackberrykevin.

And if there's anything at the show you want them to check out, let them -- and us -- know!
