Some say you would have to have your head in the sand not to have heard the latest buzzword in the tech industry: Wi-Fi. Coined in recent years, Wi-Fi is the user-friendly name for a group of technologies based on the IEEE 802.11 specification.

Hype and whiz-bang technology ideas haven’t been much in evidence at the CTIA Wireless 2003 show in New Orleans this week. Instead the show has been dominated by real products, real engagements and partnerships designed to integrate existing technologies to make a more seamless whole.
