What happened in the past 24 hours? :E3, Nokia Connection, CommunicAsia

[EVENT] No offence Nokia, you gave the media a first look at your X Series, including the Nokia X5, a phone that will go head on with the Motorola Backflip. But unfortunately, the new XBOX 360 is always going to steal the headlines or Microsoft Kinect (formerly known as Project Natal) but is does not seem so impressive after all. So I am going with the brand new XBOX 360 as the main image. What’s more? There are MORE to come. E3 Expo and CommunicAsia will both last a couple of days. And as of writing this post, Nintendo 3DS is formally introduced to the world.

Why did the companies chose to announce these gadgets so closely together? What are these events? Time to cut and paste.

E3 Expo is the premier global computer and video game trade show. It takes place June 15-17, 2010, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. E3 Expo draws tens of thousands of professionals to experience the future of interactive entertainment. The most influential people leading the most innovative companies in the business attend E3 Expo to see groundbreaking new technologies and never-before-seen products for computers, video game consoles, handheld systems and the Internet.

E3 Expo 2010 will welcome software developers, buyers and retailers, programmers, distributors, entertainment industry representatives, financiers and venture capitalists, importers and exporters, manufacturers, resellers, researchers, educators, financial and industry analysts and worldwide electronic and print media.

Nokia Connection is an annual event in Singapore where Nokia showcase their current device and service portfolio and address the SEAP (South East Asia and Pacific) market. This year it is being held on Monday June 14th (tomorrow) at Conrad Centennial Singapore. (Source) – I did not manage to find the information on the Nokia Singapore Website.

Since 1979, CommunicAsia has established itself to be THE unparalleled one-stop ICT event platform in Asia. CommunicAsia2010 is an ideal marketplace bringing buyers and sellers together to seek the best returns on investments and to determine the best value and latest convergent technologies and applications. (Source) – This is really more of a trade show but still a couple of big gadget manufacturers will be there.

I am really doing a BIG disservice to E3 here, because the size of that Expo is way bigger and the impact on our lives will be far more heavy too. Wow, electronic gaming is capable of impacting our lives?
