If you still plan to go to CeBIT this year, realy don't forget to take your Wireless LAN card with you. The - by Mobilcom and Cisco - provided coverage and speed is more than enough to access the web from almost everywhere on the CeBIT area.
When I uploaded the news to PPCW.N last week, I took the Mobilcom W-LAN all the time. It supports HTTP, FTP, SMT and POP3 so you will not miss any service you used to use on your home desktop. On this place I want to give Mobilcom a big thank you for providing this free of charge service! It was perfect and you saved my life. The W-LAN is also accessible with your Pocket PC and Mobilcom uses a proxy server to optimize the pages for the PDA access. The results aren't as bad as you may believe now. However, this proxy also redesign already Pocket PC friendly web sites but there is a link available on every site to get the original layout too.
If you want to access the Mobilcom W-LAN too, you have to walk to the Internet CafÃ© at the IC, drop your business card there and you will get a voucher to access the Internet on that CeBIT day.
If you are an inbound roamer and want to access the Internet in the evening through your GPRS phone you could use your regular CSD dial-up connection or GPRS. While GRX (the name for GPRS International Roaming) isn't mostly available today you could buy also a prepaid card from O2/VIAG Interkom. O2 also provides on its prepaid card GPRS that enables you to access the web without any hassles. LOOP GPRS (LOOP is the brand name from O2 for its prepaid product) costs 10 â‚¬ per 1 MB; this looks expensive but it is even cheaper than the postpaid GPRS tariffs here in Germany from D1-Telekom, D2 Vodafone or E-Plus KPN!
Enjoy your CeBIT days, I'm done for this year...
