CeBIT showcases mobility


CeBIT showcases mobility

This year’s CeBIT IT trade show in Hannover will feature a variety of useful peripheral devices for mobile users, including back-up storage and scanning solutions.

Socket Communications will showcase a Bluetooth-enabled wireless scanner which can be connected to a variety of mobile devices, including Palm and Pocket PC personal digital assistants, Symbian-powered smart phones, notebook PCs, and Microsoft XP-powered tablet devices, which are all equipped with Bluetooth wireless interfaces.

Socket will also launch the Bluetooth Cordless Serial Adapter to eliminate the need to use RS-232 serial cables for connecting devices.

These two offerings from Socket join the Bluetooth cordless 56Kbps modem that offers cable-free internet connections from laptops – previously covered in the Nokia Mobile Business Channel.

Another company getting in on the CeBIT mobile peripherals act is Liteon, with its easy-to-use SDW-431SX external DVD/CD player recorder. Weighing only 405g, it is marketed as an ideal mobile solution for storing and backing-up video, audio, images and other types of files onto any type of DVD or CD.

The SDW-431SX is connected to mobile devices by way of a USB 2.0 interface. The price of the device is €190 (£136). The full product specification can be found at

CeBIT runs from 18 to 24 March.
