  CeBIT 2004, wrap up and more

Things are slowly getting back to normal here at the office, as we finally seem to have conquered the bulk of press brochures, product announcements, press releases and other information gathered at CeBIT. Obviously CeBIT was the most suitable event to launch a new product in Europe, or even worldwide and many manufacturers indeed took advantage of the accumulated worldwide press present at the event. In case you missed our CeBIT coverage, you can find it right here although this is just an impression of the huge number of products and technology on display during the show. One thing was obvious though; Intel is aggressively moving forward with the new PGA-775 socket and the new Grantsdale chipset.

The other thing that was obvious is that CRT is dead and buried, and flat panel displays are now the preferred solution for displaying computer graphics as well as watching movies or TV at home. HDTV is certainly gaining a foothold in Europe too, although the lack of HDTV material will not mean a speedy adoption by the consumers anytime soon. Things are gradually moving forward though, but we’re still a long way from the situation in the US and Japan, where HDTV is readily available. Our full report can be found at the below url, featuring more details about all of the products we've come across during the show.
