Hottest gadgets expected from IFA 2011

At IFA, Europe's biggest festival of technology, we're beaming the best bits directly into your thrill-holes.

Give me an I! Give me an F! Give me an A! Whaddaya got? Only Europe's biggest festival of technology from smart phones to headphones, tablets to televisions, and cameras to computers! It's a whole world of gadget goodness and we're beaming the best bits directly into your thrill-holes for the next seven days.

IFA is the largest consumer technology trade show in Europe, and is second only to Las Vegas technology bunfest CES on the world stage. It's great for seeing technology that will round out the year and could be filling your stocking come Christmas, and it's all happening in Berlin between Wednesday and Sunday, with more to come afterwards.

CNET UK couldn't possibly miss out on so many marvels under one roof, so we've dispatched a crack team of consumer tech commandos to the show, where we'll be previewing all the must-have new kit from the show floor. Keep an eye on our IFA 2011 page for our first impressions and hands-on verdicts along with the latest news.

In between the serious stuff, we'll be giving you a glimpse of the madness of IFA on our Facebook page, with loads of photos, links to the highlights, and all the cool stuff to look out for. It's also the place for you to have your say, so don't forget to let us know what you love, what you hate, and what you think is just plain nuts.

So what can we expect to see in Berlin? We reckon the show will be dominated by phones and tablets. Samsung will have a galaxy of new Galaxy devices, from the bumper Q to latest S2 and 'something big'.

Sony will reveal the latest NEX cameras, and we should finally get our hands on the hotly-anticipated S1 and S2 tablets. Plus new phones from HTC, BlackBerry, and more, as well as more HD, 3D and generally massive TVs than you can shake a stick at.

So keep it CNET UK, gadget fans!
