gdgt-live-new-york

The gdgt crew is hosting the official CE Week kickoff event next week, and the T-shirts and iPhone cases are gonna fly. Betabeat is a sponsor for this free event at the Altman Building that mixes a bit of boozing, a bit of schmoozing and a bit of trade show, as the only CE Week event that’s open to consumers.
