And that's a wrap! CTIA's fall extravaganza in Los Angeles brought us few surprises; UTStarcom's somewhat mysterious 5800 and 6800 admittedly caught us off guard, but Palm's well-documented Treo 750v was the star of the show, leaving our scoop-hungry selves without... well, much of a scoop. No worries -- we got our hands on plenty of buzzworthy handsets, made some new friends, and snapped some lowlights along the way (gory details after the break). See you in the spring, folks!

Sorry, Motorola, you're not fooling us -- we've covered too many launch delays of Cingular's V3i to not know the difference.
