Mar 11 2004 - 10:57 AM ET | In The News
While not full of new stuff, CeBit should still be some fun this year. It starts next week. Here's a preview, via Computer Weekly. * Vodafone is likely to launch the Sharp's GX30. Besides sporting a 262K color screen, Bluetooth and an SD slot, the GX30 has a 1.1 megapixel camera. This will lead the pack for GSM phones until the Sony Ericsson S700 ships in Q4. * Philips will show off its liquid lens technology that we reported on last week. * Siemens will show off its pen phone that, "allows users to write letters and numbers on any surface and enter the data directly into the device." * Nokia will show off its Communicator 9500 that it introduced at 3GSM. * Sony Ericsson will show off both the S700 and the K700.
