CeBIT kicks off in sunshine

Having seen rain, sleet and snow (and sometimes all three at once) in my time at CeBIT, it's a relief to find Hanover bathed in spring sunshine as we ascend to the giddy heights of CNET's HQ perched atop the mighty Hall 1 at the Messegelande.Hall 1 is notorious for its ability to swallow whole legions of tech hacks, who are apt to become disorientated as they penetrate its central region, where no outer walls, windows or doors are visible — just endless stand upon exhibition stand.

Having seen rain, sleet and snow (and sometimes all three at once) in my time at CeBIT, it's a relief to find Hanover bathed in spring sunshine as we ascend to the giddy heights of CNET's HQ perched atop the mighty Hall 1 at the Messegelande.

Hall 1 is notorious for its ability to swallow whole legions of tech hacks, who are apt to become disorientated as they penetrate its central region, where no outer walls, windows or doors are visible — just endless stand upon exhibition stand.

ZDNet, of course, will laugh in the face of such dangers, as we penetrate not only Hall 1, but Halls 2-26 in search of tasty tech. Tomorrow, I'll be mostly hunting down 2nd-generation Ultra Mobile PCs: a year on from their decidedly underwhelming launch, have the manufacturers got it right this time?
