Wandering the show floor at the CTIA trade show on Tuesday, there was no sign of the iPhone 4S — though there were several options if you wanted to take Apple’s latest creation for a swim.
A North Carolina company called Dry Case sells a universal bag that can be used to take most phones or cameras underwater, while Vermont-based Drisuit Technologies had a waterproof case designed just for the iPhone.
In addition to waterproof cases there was an assortment of add-ons to show off, protect and accent the iPhone and other smartphones.
What the show floor lacked was a whole lot of whizbang new hardware. The spring CTIA show, Mobile World Congress and even the Consumer Electronics Show are far better venues for that.
