Over at its global media event in New York last week, Acer has unveiled plenty of new devices that will be released in markets throughout the world including Malaysia. In addition to those that we have already confirmed last week such as the Leap wearable products and gaming-oriented Predator series, a number of other products will be heading to our shores as well as confirmed by Acer Malaysia.
Acer’s mammoth product launch in New York featured over forty new products, encompassing its traditional range of laptops and tablets and into more product categories, including all-in-ones, its new gaming range as well as strengthening its convertibles lineup.
One of these is the new Switch 10 E, the refreshed edition to Acer’s successful first-generation Switch 10 convertible.
Leagoo has released yet another smartphone, but this time around, it’s not an entry-level or a budget mid-range device. Equipped with a 1.4GHz octa-core processor from Mediatek that is paired to 2GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch 720p display, the Elite 2 is definitely a capable smartphone. However, retailing at RM749, it’s not exactly a budget device – unlike the mid-range Lead 7’s RM599 price tag.
A new teaser released by Samsung could indicate that the Samsung Gear S‘ successor will feature a circular display. The teaser above is actually taken from the Korean giant’s press release that announced the release of the Software Development Kit (SDK) for the next generation Gear smartwatch.
Celcom and Telekom Malaysia have signed an agreement that will see Celcom leasing part of TM’s network. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed to allow Celcom to increase its fibre-optic network coverage using infrastructure provided by TM Next-Gen Backhaul (TMNGB) services, while also providing a robust backhaul network for its LTE network.
Elephone will reportedly release a smartphone that can dual-boot Windows 10 and Android 5.0. The unnamed device was teased at the recent Global Source Mobile Electronics Fair in Hong Kong, and now, the company has reached out to Neowin to confirm the device’s hardware specifications as well as a launch date.
The Google Nexus 7 has been taken down from the Google Store, the device’s official product page now shows a notice saying “the Nexus 7 is no longer available for purchase”. The Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 were also recently removed from the Play Store, meaning the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are the only smartphone and tablet available from Google.
Last week, app developers for the Pebble smartwatch had noticed that their work was being rejected from the App Store. At the time, they were told that any apps that made reference to other manufacturers in the documentation or meta data would be automatically rejected; however, Apple has issued a statement saying that it was all a misunderstanding and the apps should not have been rejected in the first place.
