Cebit Coverage Day Four
D-Link had a larger display of routers and other wireless networking devices, including a dualband Wireless N access point, which operates at 2.4GHz with a speed of 300Mbit.
Next to that, we found a wireless G access point that was embedded in a weather-proof casing, meant for outside wireless action. The case is heated and is said to withstand even the strongest torrents of rain and storm. It operates at 108Mbit.
Netgear had an assortment of Wireless N hardware as well, starting with its RangeMax N routers and access points, but also including PCI, PCMCIA and USB wireless N adapters.
The HD war is finally over with Blu-Ray as the winner, so there would obviously be some drives on display. Panasonic had Blu-Ray compatible devices from slim-DVD drives for laptops all the way up to Blu-Ray players for your TV. The 5.25” players on display included one that could write Blu-Ray as well, although only at 4x (BD-R) or 2x (BD-RE).
Sony had the BWU-200S on display, which can read Blu-Ray at 4x speed.
What good would the last days coverage be without some more booth babes? Enjoy!
That was OCC’s coverage of the 2008 CeBit in Hannover, Germany. I hope you got an insight of what is coming and what’s hot. My expectations were more than exceeded, but I was a little disappointed by the laptop manufacturers, that there were only very few competitors to the Asus Eee PC out yet. Overall, there are some very neat things due out in the next couple of months! At this point I want to thank OverclockersClub and especially Dave (Bosco) for giving me the opportunity to go to CeBit!
