Sony IFA inviteThis year's IFA — the annual consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany — is still a little under two months away. But it seems invites are already going out to the Japanese press for Sony's big IFA booth unveiling and press conference, which is set for Sep. 4 in hall 4.2 of the Messe Berlin exhibition center.

An invite received by Japanese blog RBMen indicates things will kick off at 4pm local time (3pm BST, 10am EDT, 7am PDT) at the Sony booth. IFA is of course a general consumer electronics trade show, but on the mobile front we'll be expecting to hear more about the rumored "Xperia i1" (Honami) device, said to pack a 20-megapixel camera with advanced optics. We'll be on the ground in Berlin once again this year, so keep it locked to AC this September for full IFA coverage.
