Will Qwest analyst event pack any surprises?

Qwest Communications is holding its first analyst day event in more than six years today in New York City, but the analysts are not expecting many surprises, if any. Qwest CEO Ed Mueller and CFO John Richardson will be the lead presenters in what has been promised as an outlining of Qwest's strategy.

One area where many analysts would like to see new strategic movement is in wireless, and Mueller has acknowledged that the currently wireless-less Qwest needs to review its options. Could a new partnership be on tap?
