Little more than a year ago, Taiwan's ASUSTek Computer Inc., owner of the ASUS brand, launched the world's first Eee PC, a miniature notebook computer with wireless internet connectivity and other consumer-oriented features. Last year, the Eee PC became one of the hit products in the PC business. Following ASUSTek's lead, the world's leading vendors have rushed to offer similar products.

The Eee PC is helping to narrow the digital divide. In line with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative to bring affordable computers to underprivileged children in less developed countries, Taiwan companies have led the global industry by offering low-cost, energy-efficient solutions.

Taiwan companies account for about 90 percent of the world's notebook PC production, and many of these companies manufacture products under contact for the world's largest brands in the business.

Some of the companies at the Bringing Innovations to the World event are leaders as well.

A-DATA is the world's second-largest vendor of memory modules, AIPTEK is an industry leader in small digital video cameras, KYE (Genius brand) is one of the world's largest makers of PC peripherals, and ZyXEL is a leading manufacturer of networking equipment.

At CeBIT this year, visitors can see 78 outstanding products showcased in the Taiwan Excellence Pavilion at Hall 20 / Stand C02. Many of these products won iF Design Awards in 2009.

Products at the Taiwan Excellence Pavilion includes a large screen Skype-certified videophone from ASUS and a number of mobile phones that combine PDA and GPS functions.

Also at the Pavilion, HTC, one of the world's leading mobile phone makers, will showcase the latest version of its Touch Diamond smartphones.
