Hot new releases from IFA 2013 gadget show

Nearly 1,400 of the world's leading technology companies have descended on the International Congress Center in Berlin for the 2013 IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) Trade Fair.

The annual show is a chance for leading consumer electronics and home appliances firms to show off their latest wares. But there's also a chance for new kids on the block to try to bring novel gadgets and ideas to the market. The main focus is on digital products, from ultrahigh definition displays to smart televisions, tablet computers, smartphones and networked home appliances.

With 80 different rooms and space for nearly 10,000 people, the show could be described as gadget heaven—even if it does require some heavy walking!

Samsung has made the biggest noise at the show so far, with the release of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch, marking the first entry by a major tech company into wearable technology.
