HANOVER - The world's biggest computer trade fair, CeBIT, opens its doors to the public Thursday with a range of high-tech gadgetry underscoring the growing digital revolution as well as the dramatic changes taking place in mobile IT services.

About 6,260 companies have turned up this year to show their latest equipment at the six-day CeBIT, which was officially opened Wednesday by Chancellor Angela Merkel. More than half the exhibitors are from outside Germany.

Last year, about 480,000 people visited CeBIT, which is being held in the north German city of Hanover.
