Each year in the early summer, the tech world converges to Taipei, the bustling capital of Taiwan, for COMPUTEX, the largest tech fair in Asia. Thousands of companies, from local specialty manufacturers to the largest international corporations, bring their hottest offerings in front of hordes of avid tech lovers, industry professionals, and of course, tech bloggers.
But COMPUTEX is more than a tech fair. Taiwan is a global manufacturing center, and chances are that, whatever device you are rocking, at least some components in it are made in Taiwan. So it’s no wonder that each edition of COMPUTEX brings product launches, precious insight into technology developments, and even exclusive leaks.
Just like last year, Android Authority will be represented at COMPUTEX by our Editor-in-Chief, Darcy LaCouvee. Darcy will trawl the huge halls of the Taipei World Trade Center, leaving no booth unchecked, no device un-tested, and no industry representative not harassed for info (just kidding, he will only harass some of them).
All next week, we’ll bring you comprehensive live coverage of all major developments at COMPUTEX 2012. Expect some awesome hands-on videos with devices from HTC, ASUS, Acer and other Taiwanese manufactures, but also from international players. ViewSonic is promising a humongous 22-inch Android tablet that we can’t wait to take from a spin. ASUS has teased a dual-boot Android/Windows 8 Transformer, that it will probably unveil at COMPUTEX. Nvidia might spill some beans on its plans for Tegra 3+ and Tegra 4. We’ll be there.
Whatever happens at COMPUTEX, you can bet that you’ll get the best live coverage from Android Authority. The show starts on Tuesday, but Darcy has a full Monday all planned out, so make sure to check back with us tomorrow. To get a birds-eye view of the show, make sure to check our COMPUTEX 2012 tag page.
