In Short

IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) is an annual consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany, which often serves as a launching platform for smartphone and tablet manufacturers. Think of it as a mini-Mobile World Congress (MWC) ... though "mini" in this case means there will still be over 200,000 people exhibiting or attending.

While press events typically take place around the city in the lead up to IFA, much of the action will center on Messe Berlin, the massive event venue that plays host to the show. Android Central is on the ground at IFA to bring you full coverage of the show's events.
