CeBIT in Australia

May 25, 2005

CeBIT Australia has been powering along the last 2 days and there has been a good number of attendees driving through the show. I have been quite impressed with the number of people coming through and the calibre of individuals approaching the stand. Having the 4 solution partners on the stand with us has attracted the attention of many an interested perambulator.

I haven’t had too much of an opportunity to go around the show as I have been mainly stuck on our stand, but I did take a quick look at some of the hardware manufacturers looking for a good large widescreen monitor for my new PC system that I’ve ordered. LG & Dell have some exceptional ones.

Today I was interviewed by Chia Seiler of Frost & Sullivan @ the show on the topic of 3G and the video will be available from VioCorp who did the webcasting on their CeBIT event site. (Titled "Webcast: 3G, Sponsored by VioCorp").

Of course today would have gone much better if I hadn’t been physically intercepted by an overzealous moronic bird, that decided to use my left eye as a landing strip as I was outdoors heading for the coffee shop. One short trip to the doctor and I was back in action with nare but a wee scratch. Yes, the bird had left it’s mark in the shape of a "7" scratched on my eye ball. Oh the dangers of looking for a good cup of coffee……..

Here’s some pictures of the stand taken with the Nokia 6680

    Good CeBIT report, albeit that it rather confirms that drinking coffee can be hazardous to ones health! My advice is stay in doors and stick to beer – if you do venture out then sip beverages slowly through a straw whilst wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet?Hope the eyeball is on the mend and looking forward to more from the front of Australian mobile services…

    Thanks for the post. Yes, the eyeball was back in full action today. :-)And staying indoors to drink was the safest place to be on the last day!
