Last week, Microsoft has made a surprise announcement that it will be shifting future Nokia X products to Lumia Windows Phone family in order to produce more low-cost Lumia devices. Generally, this mark the end to Nokia X platform even though Microsoft stated that the company is still committed to the existing Nokia X devices until 2015.
True to its words, we believe that we might be able to see Nokia X2 in Malaysia soon. This is due to its appearance on SIRIM’s database; registered as RM-1013 by Nokia Malaysia as well as two of the brand’s long-time distributor, Zitron and Avaxx.

Even though Chinese phone manufacturers have long established themselves in our market through the effort of companies such as Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel One Touch, it was only recently that Malaysian consumers have started to pay more attention to these companies especially with the help of Oppo and Xiaomi.
Hence, it is only natural that more Chinese companies are now interested to make their own mark in Malaysia as well. After the arrival of Vivo last month, the next Chinese manufacturer that will make its official debut in Malaysia very soon is Zopo Mobile.
Just moments ago, the CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella has revealed that the company is planning to cut up to 18,000 positions by next year. A majority of those positions (around 12,500) will be involving former staff from the Nokia Devices and Services division that the company acquired last year as Microsoft is looking into further integrate the division as its own.
But apart for that news, the company has also revealed that it will be shifting the fairly young Nokia X portfolio to the Lumia Windows Phone family. In other words, Microsoft has killed off the Nokia X series.

What is better than one graphics card? Well, the obvious answer would be two (or more) graphics cards. However, some users prefer to have them in one single package and even though there are only a handful of users out there that are actually able to afford dual-GPU graphics card, GPU companies have no problem fulfilling that request year after year.
One such product that was released in Malaysia recently is this monstrous Radeon R9 295X2, the latest and the greatest (so far) from AMD.
