IFA 2012 exploded this year. From a fairly sedate consumer electronic show, this European event has now become a true mid-year showcase for the world’s best companies to come out and gloat over who is about to release the next big thing.
Three trends were clear.
The first was the influence of Microsoft Windows 8 and how it was going to spawn a whole new generation of devices – Hybrids, Tablets and All-in-Ones.
The second was that 4K TVs (four times the resolution of our current 1080p HD) are the next leap ahead for displays and TVs.
And the third was a mixed trend – how the mobile operating system was enabling fantastic new phones and also breaking boundaries and moving on to other device categories like an Android-based camera and TV. IFA showcased our tech future. Here’s some of the best of its 2012 edition.
