3D was big

Like CES, 3D technology was a big hit at the show. Attendees got to wear the latest glasses, but some companies (such as Sunny Ocean Studios and SeeFront) were showing off glasses-free 3D display technology. Even Germanys chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel, got into the 3D spirit.

Nokia C5

The first of Nokia's Cseries handsets comes with integrated support for Facebook in the address book, and support for e-mail and instant messaging. The Symbian-based smartphone will start shipping in the second quarter and cost $180, before taxes and subsidies. Going against current smartphone trends, the C5 is a candybar-shaped device with a numerical keypad. Users can share location with the latest version of Ovi Maps, which offers free walk and drive navigation, according to Nokia.

eSlick e-book reader

Foxit Software will release a new version of its eSlick e-book reader, which has been redesigned to fit a bit better in a pocket, in about seven weeks.

The eSlick PS will come in white and black and will cost around $259.99, although Foxit hopes to eventually drop the price to less than $200.
