Apart from launching Lumia 640 and 640 XL, Microsoft seems to have surprised quite a number of pple in the crowd earlier today by also unveiling its brand new Universal Foldable Keyboard. Just like the previously released Universal Mobile Keyboard, this new Bluetooth wireless keyboard supports Android, iOS and Windows devices.
So, it is finally here. Officially revealed for the first time moments ago here in Barcelona, the HTC One M9 is the fourth flagship smartphone in HTC One series with its lineage can be traced back to the original HTC One X smartphone back in 2012.
However, it is hard to ignore how similar the One M9 looks like to its previous two predecessors: the 2013’s One (a.k.a the M7), and 2014’s One M8. Nevertheless, HTC insists that the One M9 is a much more refined product than previous flagship devices. So, let’s take a closer look.
Right after HTC One M9 and HTC Grip fitness tracker, HTC continues its assault here at Mobile World Congress 2015 with…a virtual reality headset. Yup, that’s right: the Taiwanese mobile phone company has announced a virtual reality headset called HTC Vive.
Not only that it is not designed to be used with mobile phone, it was created with the help of Valve which explains why HTC Vive is utilizing the famed game company’s SteamVR tracking and input technologies.
Alongside HTC One M9, the Taiwanese company has also unveiled its first wearable device called HTC Grip. Utilizing the UA Record platform from Under Armour, this is the first product that came from the strategic partnership that both companies announced at the recent CES 2015.
Just like many of the previously released HTC One devices, the HTC One M9 is pretty much one of the world’s worst kept secret. Nevertheless, it is now finally time to say hello (for real) to the new flagship smartphone which was officially launched in Barcelona just few moments ago.
A typical Intel Atom-based Windows 8.1 tablet in the market does not usually come with a full HD display. After all, such tablet is usually made for the budget segment of the market and having lower resolution display would tone its price tag down.
But not for IPRO Livepad 8.9 though as it is actually equipped with an 8.9-inch WUXGA IPS display. That’s 1920 x 1200 resolution, to be exact and believe it or not: the tablet still costs under RM 1000.
So, you somehow feel that the 64GB internal storage in your current smartphone is no longer enough to contain all the massive amount of apps and videos that you love to enjoy. Well, don’t fret…who knows, your next smartphone might feature a bigger 128GB internal storage such as this newly announced embedded memory from Samsung.
Before I begin, let me get this out first: these are not the OnePlus smartphones that you might be looking for. That’s because OnePlus still has not officially release its smartphone in Malaysia and also, the company has yet to launch the successor to OnePlus One which is fondly known by many as OnePlus Two.
So, what are these Plus One and Plus Two smartphones then?
This might sound rather weird but it has come to our attention that Malaysia Airlines has begun to offer global prepaid roaming service called MHsim to its customers. Does this means that the national carrier has expanded its business into telecommunication?
Well…no, it doesn’t. Instead, MHsim is technically a value added service for its MHinsure travel insurance.
Some users are ok with it but we believe many of you out there actually peeled off the MCMC – SIRIM stickers (like the one above) that usually seemed out of place on your shiny new smartphone or laptops. If you are one of them, here’s a good news for you: it will soon be a thing of past as MCMC today has officially launched the Self Labelling Program (SLP) for communications and multimedia products.
When NVIDIA released driver version 347.52 earlier this month, many users have found out that driver has disabled the ability to overclock the GeForce GTX 900M GPUs for laptops. Although an NVIDIA representative has explained that the overclock was turned on by mistake (referred to as “a bug”) and it was turned off again to protect user’s system, many continued to criticize the decision.
Most Windows users out there would be familiar with the need to install patches through Windows Update from time to time. Even though not all of them are made to fix the operating system as they could be drivers and Windows’s own anti-malicious software, the amount of patches that users need to apply from time to time might give the impression that Windows has plenty of vulnerabilities.
