Sony eReader PRS-T1The 51st annual IFA, the largest consumer electronics and home appliance show in the world, began it’s five day extravaganza. This is when consumer electronics are redefined for the next twelve months. The size of this show is humongous. Last year in Berlin there were more than 230,000 attendees.

Sony claimed at the Sony IFA 2011 press event that over 800 million people use Sony products. It seems hard to believe, but they are probably counting one person per product. It is more likely that if a person likes Sony, they will own many Sony items. So we can safely dismiss that number as bloated. However, the hype over some of the advancements by Sony is anything but bloated. There are some amazing products to be excited about.
