Computex 2005 - Asian answer to Russian SvyazExpocom

Probably, the first question a reader would like to ask is why we have chosen such a strange heading for this article. Since the exhibitions belong to different levels, and that is first, thematically they are very different, and that is second. The biggest Asian IT exhibition is rather hard to compare with a local communicational one. And we decided to devote the final article about the exhibition to girls. Our conclusive report from the SvyazExpocom usually is a special material about "the girls". And what is truly to write about when subject innovations are represented in paltry quantity? Let's remember the last CeBIT; we really had no free time to take photos of the fair sex representatives. By the way there were none to catch sight. Or we may have been too engaged in the mass of new devices and announcements to notice anything around.

Computex (the world IT exhibition number 2) is inferior to CeBIT (the first IT exhibition in the world) in width. And what do four pavilions matter when compared with three dozens?! Two-three days are more than enough to see everything interesting, and even you'll have some spare time. For the sake of justice, I'd say new pavilions are built for Computex near Taipei, since there is little room for everybody in the capital centre. And soon the exhibition will move there wholly.

The last day at the exhibition was devoted to taking the maximum photos of the around-exhibition realities, including girls. The process looked the following way. Several men with their cameras search through the exhibition for beautiful girls. Having found the ones we liked, we asked them for photos. And then the most interesting. After a couple of frames, when they started posing, about 10 new photographers (mainly local people) appeared nearby and started their photo session.

Texas Instruments, processor manufacturer, always distinguished with beautiful girls, just remember the ones at the 3GSM congress. The Taipei exhibition was not an exception, and they were ones of the most unforgettable, and certainly the tallest ones.

AMD girls could have been met in all the pavilions walking in groups of two or three. And here are the girls at the company's stage near the F1 bolide.

Everyone could have been photographed with them and a nameboard of the new processor. Look at this pleased Chinese man, he obviously likes his company.

And here is AMD in the fourth pavilion.

Permanent walking through the pavilions, endless posing and flashes exhausted the AMD girls so much that they only could get outdoors and take a fifteen minutes' nap at the tables specially reserved by the company.

At the nVidia stand elf-girls were wearing company colour. They looked like alive characters from the company demonstrational clips showing the capabilities of video-accelerators. And really the 3D acceleration amazed with its success!

Chaintech representatives attracted with a lovely public game "stone, scissors, paper" at the company's stand. Win and get a pen, lost - go to the company stand to test your luck there.

And there a model of whose image and likeness a symbol of Apogee series videocards was drawn to was waiting. Or maybe vice versa. Anyway - similarity to the fore.

VIA models mainly wore skin-tight clothes of black leather. Having stood out in front of the camera for some time, the girls started drawing a motherboard, to participate one had to throw his visit card into the common stock. We have distributed the entire visit cards and hence had nothing to do but take photos instead of participating.

Pay attention to a wide companies' collaboration. AMD stamp on the waist, MSI on clothes, Intel on bags. Which company to assign these girls?

It seems they represented MSI. Here is how they should look primordially (with company packages and no other companies' labels on their waists), so to speak a "home version".

Intel representatives had not just to carry many distributing bags but to hug boxes with water that was also given to visitors.

The company of SIS has initiated a model show at its stand literally. But now camera objectives were directed not to fashionable garb but to chips. The clothes were technologically decorated as it should.

It was very hard to persuade the Microsoft girls to be photographed an hour prior to the exhibition closure. But nevertheless we managed that.

The Shuttle's stand attracted not only with an XPC small-body desktop computer. Girls gathered many people at the stand throwing various trinkets to the crowd from time to time. One of the photos shows the girls whispering about in which direction to throw a regular portion of pens.

Bags with souvenirs were given to all the interested people at the Kingston's stand.

Having headed for a cup of coffee we met acquaintances of us from the Kingston's stand. They left a cellular phone and broke into a smile at the sight of our camera.

Some more photos. That's hard to make out which company that is, but the girls are nice.

The Tatung girls were so proud of the award for their DVD+HDD player that allowed photographing only against the background of the winner-model. We could not refuse them.

The exhibition was about to close (the last short day, many sand were dismantle at 3:30 pm), and we headed for the exit. We passed near the PQL stand. A girl there stopped us to ask if we wanted a photo with her.

And here we finish the story about the Asian exhibition. Though that is not the last material about our Taiwanese trip.
