Canalys Navigation Forum - Budapest

So here I am, sitting in Budapest at the Canalys Navigation Forum.

One of the keynote presentations today was held by Ilya Bukshteyn, Sen. Director of Windows Embedded Marketing Group. The keynote was supposed to of been held by Kevin Dallas, who unfortunately was not able to make the event - Get well soon Kevin.
The presentation, which covered Microsofts vision of connected, service oriented devices also included a NavReady demo from Olivier Bloch. If you read his post about the keynote rehearsal, then this is where the story continues:

Olivier doing last minute preps:

And Ilya in action:

One of the announcements made during the presentation is that Mio will be building its next-generation PNDs on NavReady.

And if that wasn't enough MSFT also gave away a 4GB SD memory card loaded with Windows Embedded information as well as a copy of the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Fundamentals book - that is if the books get out of customs in time!

So long and thanks for all the fish!
