Fasten your Seatbelts...

In the early hours of September 3rd, we in Dubai came to hear about Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's handset and devices division.  This will though for most of us following the tech industry be a whirlwind week and a month of non-stop activity in the tech sphere.

Expect to hear in the next seven days the ramifications of this deal analyzed in great detail.  However,  there's a trade show in Berlin called IFA where Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note III, the rumoured Galaxy Gear smart watch and maybe an OLED TV.  Sony will also undoubtedly try and grab some share of the headlines as well whether it be again with their smartphone, smart watch and TV businesses.

Then on September 10th, we expect to hear from Apple formally about a new iPhone and the official release of iOS7.

Somewhere during the month of September we will undoubtedly hear from LG, HTC, Lenovo, BlackBerry and a host of others of what they've got planned.

Towards the end of the month, most brands and retailers, including ourselves will start ramping up for Gitex Shopper (which is from October 5 - 12, 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre) and there will be I'm sure a barrage of news releases, new product announcements and launch events.

If you're a tech journalist or blogger, my sympathies are with you as you can't expect to get much sleep but if you're an enthusiast like me, this will feel like Christmas has come early.

So sit back and enjoy the ride!
