CommunicAsia 2008 - The Showfloor Coverage


Introduction & Samsung

CommunicAsia 2008

June has got to be the busiest and perhaps the most exciting period in tech journalism and the tech industry itself with events like PC Show wooing consumers with great IT offers and bargains, while overseas in Computex the latest in the PC components trends, technologies and products around the world are shown. The yearly CommunicAsia affair also quickly follows suit in mid-June bringing together the major players of the telecommunications and broadcast industries under one roof for trade collaborations and unveiling new products, services and conveying industry moving alliances and memorandums.

So as you can see, June is an important milestone for the tech industry not only for reaching the half-yearly mark, but also because of the multi-faceted developments taking place. As always, the Hardware Zone editorial team was in the thick of CommunicAsia if you've noticed the flurry of article updates we've lined up today. In this last article, we've covered a variety of interesting booths and products that caught our attention at the show floor, but if you've missed any of our previous articles, check out our final coverage for CommunicAsia 2008, starting with the Samsung booth!
