Apart from officially launching its new LTE-enabled DG SmartPlan postpaid plans and the equally new weekly mobile internet prepaid package yesterday, the telco has also provided an update on the current state of its network during a media event before.
According to the telco, DiGi’s network is much better than before. Frankly speaking, that is one bold claim.
Bernama yesterday has published a report that Kementerian Dalam Negeri (Ministry of Home Affairs) has put a ban on an Ultraman book called “Ultraman The Ultra Power” due to elements that might cause unrest among public. The news then spread like a wildfire, generated a lot of interesting response from plenty of netizens who are clearly baffled at the move.
Some even thought that KDN is banning the whole family of UItraman since the original news piece by Bernama didn’t specify the reason behind the ban. However, that is not actually accurate.
Last night, Newsweek published a rather interesting article which claims that it has able to locate and identify the actual person that is responsible for the birth of Bitcoin. According to the article, Satoshi Nakamoto is indeed the creator’s real name (his full name is Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto though) and is a 64-years old Japanese-American engineer that lives in California.
After Newsweek’s article went live and viral throughout the globe, it led to an immediate media frenzy with journalists starting to camp in front of his home in pursuit for further clarification. He eventually came out of his home and grabbed a journalist from Associated Press to tell his side of the story.
Still remember how Xiaomi managed to sell off its first batch of Xiaomi Redmi in Singapore within 8 minutes? Well, the smartphone manufacturer from China has managed to do it once again…and this time, the company managed to do it even faster.
So, DiGi has finally enabled LTE connectivity for its smartphone customers this week – around 8 months after it was initially made available for tablets and broadband customers. That being said though, this particular service is currently available only for postpaid customers.
Hence, we asked DiGi at the company’s media event earlier today if the telco has plan to extend LTE to prepaid customers. As expected, it turns out that DiGi is indeed planning to offer LTE to its prepaid customers.
As you might have read yesterday, DiGi has rolled out a set of new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans which also signifies the official availability of DiGi 4G LTE service for smartphones. While subscribers to these new plans receive access to LTE connectivity, how about customers that are still on the previous iteration of DG SmartPlan postpaid plans such as SmartPlan 48, SmartPlan 68 and SmartPlan 88?
If you are one of these customers, don’t worry if you still not able to utilize LTE connectivity on your LTE smartphone at the time being. Just like how it was stated in the FAQ section of DiGi LTE’s website, LTE connectivity will soon be made available to you according to the confirmation by Christian Thrane, the Chief Marketing Officer of DiGi at a media event earlier today.
As what we have just reported just moments ago, DiGi has officially revealed the availability of LTE for smartphone through its newly refreshed line-up of DG SmartPlan. That being said, the LTE connectivity is not activated automatically.
By that, we mean there might be couple of things that DiGi customers need to do in order to use it. One such requirement could be a new USIM card.
The interface might looked different from your usual Android devices but make no mistake: Nokia X is indeed an Android device although the OS is based on Android Open Source Project codes and doesn’t have the native access to Google services. Hence, users are able to install Android apps into the device rather easily.
After being rumoured for quite some time, the new Nokia X was finally unveiled at the recent Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona last week. Somehow, Nokia decided not to wait for long to bring the device over to Malaysia and has officially launched it for our market just moments ago.
Even though we have spent some time with Nokia X (as well as its bigger brother, the Nokia XL) at MWC, we decided to have another brief but closer walk-through with the device once again. Don’t to forget to check our subsequent post where we’ll show you how to install Android apps into Nokia X.
Barely a week after the device made its first official public appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, Nokia X is now in Malaysia. Just moments ago, Nokia Malaysia has officially launched the new device in our shores and users will be able to see it in stores within this week itself.
Previously, a number of lower-end AMD APUs were sold to end-users in the form of soldered-on package. Designed for the budget market, this means that users are not able to purchase just the APU chip alone since it is soldered directly into the motherboard.
That is not the case with the brand new AMD AM1 platform, even though it is still designed for the budget segment of the market with a starting price that is less than RM 200.
Part of ASUS new products that were revealed at CES 2014 few months ago, the ASUS ZenFone series comes in three different models with all of them are powered by Intel Atom Z2000 dual-core processors series. Soon, Malaysian consumers will be able to see the ASUS ZenFone device right here in our shores according to the info from our sources at ASUS Malaysia.
If you somehow didn’t notice it, Lowyat.NET is certainly in a green mode today. The reason is rather simple: Nokia X will be launched in Malaysia tomorrow and we are able to inform you that consumers are able to order the new device from our own online store, Storekini.com real soon.
