Back from CommunicAsia 2007


It was a tiring but fun day at CommunicAsia 2007 yesterday. As expected, the majority of the exhibits had to do with networking equipment: from LAN to MAN to WAN, from wired to wireless, satellite to optical, as well as certain categories of products that defies categorization.

Rather than bore you folks to death with details of every idiosyncratic product on offer, I have decided to filter down and feature only the most outstanding products. Actually, as you can expect, there are some pretty idiotsynthetic ones as well, but I digress...

Now, I have already identified four outstanding gadgets or technologies that caught my attention and will be writing and posting them in separate postings spaced over the next few days. So, do keep a lookout for them!

For today however, we'll be looking at some snapshots that I managed to capture on my trusty Sony Ericsson K800i. Hope you like them!

Long queue on day 1: Took a while to get in

Ok, first mystery. Can you figure out the link between the girls and the products?

Now, what has golf got to do with Enterprise IT? Ah-ha! Golf is for "networking"!

Plenty of free Internet Access so that you addicts don't have to kill for Internet access.

This is my favorite. Crackberries at work (ahem) with their BlackBerries. Anyone in your organization needing to ditch their BlackBerry?

So, there goes the first round-up of CommunicAsia 2007. I have some more pictures, which I will publish and provide shortly.

The image gallery is now up, you can see the rest of the pictures here.

. One thing I found interesting was the predominance of English, and the lack of Chinese. Is that common for trade shows in Singapore? Asia? Thanks.

Hi TechExec2, that was a pretty sharp observation here. (So the pictures really spoke a thousand words eh) You are likely to find much more Chinese in Taiwan and China trade-shows, but yes, it is quite likely even then that you will find more than adequate English to be able to find your way around. Double ditto if it is an IT show or where an international audience is expected. Where talking about Singapore in particular, an English-speaking visitor will feel very much at home here. Of course, a local pal/guide would still be your best bet if you are keen to sample the mind-boggling varieties of Chinese/Malay/Indian/Japanese/Thai/Western cuisine that is... uniquely Singapore. :) http://www.sg No kidding when I say one of the first things that Singaporeans miss when they go on extended overseas trip would be the food!
