First shown at CES 2013 earlier this year, the humongous Huawei Ascend Mate is set to be released in Malaysia very soon. Its imminent arrival into our shores is not actually a secret though as Huawei Malaysia has publicly mentioned the details of the launch event at their Facebook page which has been scheduled to take place on 30 May.
Equipped with a 6.1-inch 1280×720 IPS+ display, the Huawei Ascend Mate is powered by the company’s own K3V2 chipset that features a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU and paired together with 2GB RAM. It also comes with up to 32GB internal memory, 8-megapixels rear camera and 1-megapixels front-facing camera. Not to forget, it is also features a huge 4050mAh battery.
Obviously, Ascend Mate’s Malaysian pricing has yet to be revealed by Huawei at the time being. So, stay tuned for that and other important details about the device as you can definitely count on us to attend the scheduled launch event next week.

Talk about timing. Coincides with the reveal of the next-gen Xbox which is going to take place tomorrow morning (1AM Malaysian time), Sony has release a brand new teaser for their upcoming PlayStation 4 earlier today.
If you still remember, Sony has actually officially announced the new PS4 few months ago but didn’t reveal the actual console unit at the event. Hence, this new PS4 teaser from Sony is rather interesting since we can finally see the console unit even though it is still heavily blurred and only shows selected part of the console.
Here’s the full video:
Maybe there are not much to see above but don’t fret: we should be able to see more of it during PlayStation E3 Press Conference on 10 June and that date is not far away.

During the Yahoo press conference last night in New York City, Yahoo confirmed its acquisition of Tumblr with little to say about what the company plans to do with their new purchase. Instead, Yahoo announced something a little more interesting last night, a new design for its photo sharing service, Flickr, with 1TB of free storage space for all users; that’s right, 1 terabyte that can store approximately 500,000 full resolution photos per user.
Available on both mobile and desktop, the new design is now much, much prettier than before, paying more focus on the image itself rather than accompanying text. It features a vivid endless scrolling gallery in a grid layout. Images can also easily be shared onto other social network accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr.
Visit Flickr to get started now or visit Yahoo for more information.
Oh Jolla, I believed in you. I believed that the Sailfish OS would be one of the most interesting and fun additions to the Mobile Phone market to break up the humdrum that is the current 4 pronged race. Despite not being a rabid follower, I kept up to date about the “The Other Half” campaign and teaser vicariously through Pang, one of your biggest fans in all of Malaysia (dare I say in the world) and I joined in with the speculation of what it all means. For me, Jolla and Sailfish represented hope in that a new generation of OS’ with cheeky, radical ideals would come and take the world by storm. With the innovation that the N9 brought the industry (after constantly being reminded by Pang), and the amount of support from the communities, I thought Jolla and Sailfish would be the next big thing. What was the other half?
Then the Jolla page was updated.
