It's that time of year! Reviewed.com has packed its bags and headed to Berlin for IFA 2014.
You may not know much about IFA, but as Europe's largest consumer electronics show, it's a huge venue for the biggest names in tech and manufacturing to announce the latest and greatest products.
This year is IFA's 90th anniversary, and it's sure to be the biggest show yet. With the addition of a new venue called the CityCube, the trade show now covers 149,500 square meters (1,609,200 square feet) and has brought together 1,538 exhibitors.
In recognition of IFA's milestone anniversary, the organization took time during its opening press conference to look back on its history. The trade show started in 1924, with physicist Albert Einstein as its opening speaker. Even when construction on the Berlin Wall began in August 1961, just a few weeks before the start of IFA, the show carried on.
And when the wall finally fell in 1991, thousands of people from East Germany and Soviet Russia flocked to IFA to see all the latest products that were unavailable behind the Iron Curtain.
This year, IFA is all about digital technology, from smartphones and UHD OLED televisions to high-tech appliances and smart home gadgets. Samsung has already hosted its annual Unpacked extravaganza, showing off its latest smartphones and wearables. LG and Sony have outed a huge variety of products, and Panasonic showed off the world's most impressive reference speaker system.
And, yep, that was just the first day. Keep checking Reviewed.com for all the latest in-depth coverage from IFA 2014. We'll be here all week!
