Arnold Schwarzenegger only Highlight at CeBIT 2009?
 
 

The CeBIT 2009 opens on March 3rd and Governor Schwarzenegger will be there to open the IT trade show in Hannover along with Angela Merkel.
As announced last October, California is the partner country of the CeBIT 2009. California's economy is big enough to be counted as a country.

Despite the presence of the Austrian Terminator the CeBIT 2009 has lost over 25% of its exhibitors compared to CeBIT 2008. This year only 4,300 companies will exhibit in Hannover compared to 5,845 last year.
The CeBIT organizers still see a positive side of the steep exhibitor decline. The companies who still show up will be signaling plans to weather the economic crisis and will get more room to present themselves. CeBIT 2009 also managed to get 200 new exhibitors and also got Dell to come back.The big brands that exhibit at the CeBIT 2009 include Deutsche Telekom, Microsoft, IBM, SAP, Software AG, Datev, Vodafone, Intel, Dell, Hitachi, Panasonic, Adobe, Alcatel-Lucent, British Telecom, Hewlett Packard, Rittal, Lampertz, Oracle, Samsung, Yahoo, symantec, E-Plus, Xing, LinkedIn, Acer, Porsche, and Volkswagen. Via the CeBIT site.

The number of interesting new product announcements will most likely even more dissapointing than last year. CeBIT is now only an IT show with focus on computers and software and almost all of consumer electronics companies are now at the IFA in Berlin later in the year.

If we are lucky there will be some new netbooks, but then again they already had a strong showing at the CES 2009 in January.

About CeBIT 2009:
The IT Tradeshow CeBIT 2009 is taking place from March 3rd until March 8th in Hannover, Germany. The partner "country" this year is California. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is on hand to open the CeBIT 2009. Follow the product announcements at CeBIT 2009 in our CeBIT 2009 News.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
