E-book reader, cloud computing and 3D to be spotlights of Computex 2010
"Computex Taipei 2010, which will take place during June 1-5, is expected to have a total of 1,750 exhibitors and 4,700 booths, up from last year's 1,700 and 4,495, respectively, while e-book readers, cloud computing, 3D technology, mobile network and digital signage will be the spotlights of the show, according to the organizer, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). The government-sponsored TAITRA also expects the number of visitors to the show will surpass that in 2009, with more business opportunities than last year's US$20 billion. Players such as Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Microsft, Asustek Computer, Acer and Micro-Start International (MSI) are all expected to expand their booths this year. Asustek, MSI and BenQ are also expected to reveal more details about their tablet PCs, and Acer is expected to showcase its Chrome-based notebook/netbook. Motherboard makers are expected to demonstrate their USB 3.0 as well as their latest technologies. Several China-based IT players such as Malata, Hanwang Technlogy and BYD will also exhibit their latest products at the show." - Monica Chen and Yen-Shyang Hwang, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES.
