Comdex UK kicks off

Comdex UK kicked off in London today, still lacking the glitz and sheer size of the Las Vegas grandfather show but pulling what looked a decent opening day attendance.

Over 200 exhibitors are showing wares at the Earls Court space according to show organiser, Softbank Comdex. They include Compaq, UUNet, Cellnet, Unisys and Tandem. The show incorporates the UK Internet Show '97 and Object World '97 and runs through Saturday.

Highlights include Casio's Cassiopeia Windows CE handheld PC; Ricoh RDC-2E and Sanyo digiCAM digital cameras; and TMC Technology's Pentium II motherboard.
