    It's the daddy of all tech shows, and PCWorld gives the low down on what to expect from the many halls of the Hanover exhibition centre when it kicks off on the 10th:

    DUSSELDORF, GERMANY--Businesspeople need them and consumers love them--the many new smart wireless devices that are making work and play more productive and entertaining. You can expect a truckload of cool gadgets to appear at the giant CeBIT trade show, which begins next week in Hanover, Germany.

    Competition is the reason manufacturers are tripping over each other to put more pixels into phone cameras, zap more bits over the airwaves, and beam TV to small screens. And it's why a sizable chunk of the CeBIT fairgrounds this year is dedicated to companies that produce innovative wireless devices.

    What to expect this year? For one thing, smart phones that offer plenty of new features and use a mix of operating systems.

    While Microsoft Windows Mobile and Symbian grapple with each other for market share, Linux is quietly sneaking in the back door. Even PalmSource, which makes a rival operating system, sees a bright future for Linux. The company has decided to base its new Cobalt smart phone operating system on the Linux kernel.


    More here. Also, rest assured of top bit content from the show; Even as I type, our crack team of operatives are on en-route to Germany, ready to report the best of CeBit... ;)
