|Sony at CeBIT 2004
|Sony always has as a very impressive booth. The Sony booth is not situated in Hall 1 amongst most of the digital camera brands but in Hall 2. The overcrowded booth is exhibiting the latest novelties on the field of consumer electronics. From the latest digital television until the smallest Audio player, the consumer was able to wallow himself in the latest technologies. The digital cameras introduced at the PMA of course were present and demonstrated together with the new printer. The Cyber-shot DSC-F828 is still attractive but also the compact DSC-P series cameras and the DSC-T1 keep their attraction. The new digital camcorders using the DVD as storage medium have become very compact and are therefore very interesting for the video enthusiast.
Beside all the digital camera forces, there was also room for technology and emotion. The famous dog AIBO was present and like he always does, he stole many hearts. During the Press day last week, QRIO was newly introduced, the first walking robot in the world. This ambassador from Sony shows in an impressive way that walking and moving are no longer a problem.
|QRIO measures 58cm and can walk, jump and "run" with which two feet actually come off the earth! For the time being there are no concrete plans as to have QRIO available for sale, but we will undoubtedly hear more about this new technology.
Also eye catching and very attractive is the latest notebook from Sony, the VAIO x505 extreme. At the front the notebook only measures 9.7mm and with its weight of 825 grams and dimensions of 259x208mm the definition: a compact notebook is the understatement of the year! It is not known yet whether this new notebook will appear on the European market.
