Apple’s iPhone steals the show at CTIA event

Apple’s iPhone was briefly shown during AT&T’s keynote session today at the CTIA Wireless 2007 trade show. The AP reports: “When AT&T Chief Operating Officer Randall Stephenson pulled out the gadget during his speech, the audience snapped to attention and the room lit with camera flashes. And while Apple made sure to whisk the closely guarded device away from the convention center right after the speech, another keynote speaker managed to get his eager hands on it backstage beforehand: Kevin Martin, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. ‘He spent more time with it than I did,’ Stephenson said in an interview afterward. For a minute, ‘It seemed like he wouldn’t give it back,’ Stephenson joked. Then, as quickly as it began, all the fun and games came to an end—Apple style. ‘A guy in blue jeans’ took it away, Stephenson said.”
