PIKOM PC Fair 2009 (I)

PIKOM PC Fair 2009 (I)Last week, I went to the PC Fair 2009 (I) held at KL Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur.

What I noticed in PC Fair 2009 (I)

  • DSLR everywhere. there were many people bringing their DSLRs, flashgun to take pictures of the showgirls. I didn’t bring mine and I would be too shy to ask the girls pose for me.
  • Less showgirls. Compared to previous PC Fair, I saw less showgirls this time. Is it due to the economic crisis and the companies are cutting cost?
  • Less buying. It was still very crowded but I see less people were buying. They came out PC Fair with empty hands.
  • Broadband war. Malaysia broadband providers (wired or wireless) were compete in PC Fair. They had the largest booths and hired most sales persons. I rather hope they will improve service quality and coverage area first.

What’s new in PC Fair 2009 (I)?

I don’t see many new/interesting gadgets in the PC Fair. Notebooks and printers are the main products. Netbooks are RM200 cheaper than previous PC Fair.

Asus promoted EeePC 1000HE on their brochure but it hasn’t yet available in Malaysia… Very disappointed.

More booths were selling GPS products. Only one of them has the GPS data logger (used to record your positions during trip) but overpriced. GPS data loggers are priced less than USD$100 in USA.
