The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus preorders for Malaysia will be starting later tonight (12am, 31 October 2014 to be precise), but it looks like the pricing has been unveiled by Maxis. The telco has just updated its website to show the full pricing and plans for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Plenty of teasers have been posted online prior to today but nevertheless, the moment of truth has finally arrived. Just moments ago, Oppo has officially taken the drape off from its new smartphone, the Oppo N3 and as a direct successor to Oppo N1, the N3 also features a rotating camera.
There’s a new twist though: N3’s camera is actually motorized. In another words, you don’t have to use your hand to rotate it.
For the majority of users that have experienced it, losing a mobile phone whether due to accidental reasons or theft is a rather troublesome (and traumatic) experience – all the lost memories or worse, the private data stored inside your most personal of devices. To help Malaysian users cope with such situations as well as an effort to curb mobile phone theft, the Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has activated the Public Cellular Blocking Service (PCBS).
Now that I’m pretty sure most of you have already updated your Mac to OS X Yosemite and your iPhone to iOS 8.1, it’s time to make use of one of the most interesting features in these updates – Continuity. When Apple first took the curtains off its Mac OS X Yosemite, one of the most interesting things is Continuity whereby you can seamlessly work between your iOS devices and even Mac.
So, how do you turn on Continuity? Here’s a simple guide to help you make full use of your iOS and Mac devices.
[UPDATE, 22/10 413PM]: The new release date for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Malaysia has been changed to 6 November. Read more for details
[ORIGINAL ARTICLE, 21/10 555PM]:
Want to get the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Malaysia? DiGi has just sent us an email saying that both devices will be coming to Malaysia on 7 November 2014, and of course, the telco will be offering it with their phone bundles. The telco has already opened its registration of interest page so, you know what to do. According to DiGi, the preorder for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from DiGi will begin on Friday, 31 October 2014.
Celcom has also started teasing the iPhone 6 on its main page, saying that both devices are coming soon.
Maxis still hasn’t updated its teaser yet, but I guess it shouldn’t be too long till the telco takes the curtains off the teaser. Maxis has just announced that they will be offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus too. Are you excited yet?
Over the past few months, most major smartphone manufacturers have been busy announcing and launching their flagship smartphones. We saw many smartphones being announced earlier this year in MWC 2014, and back in IFA 2014, a whole lot more were released. Shortly after that, Apple held an event to take the curtains off its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and just last week, Google revealed the brand new Nexus 6 that features top-of-the-line specs. So how do all these devices stack up against each other? We have a spec sheet for that.
When Sony introduced the original Xperia Z smartphone to the world, it also introduced a manufacturing and philosophical shift in its flagship smartphone strategy: to have a six-month cycle for its Z series of flagship Android smartphones. As a result, since the Xperia Z debuted at CES 2013, we’ve now got four Z-series smartphones in under two years: the Z, Z1, Z2 and now the Xperia Z3.
The company’s faced some pretty harsh criticism over this move, as many consumers feel that they are being short-changed for buying a premium smartphone that’s only going to be a flagship for six months. But since using both the Xperia Z2 and the Z3 almost back-to-back, I’m beginning to see some semblance of logic in Sony’s apparent madness.
Now that all big four telcos in Malaysia have unveiled their Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pricing, let’s take a look at what all of them have got to offer. Maxis is offering the device from as low as RM1,699, Celcom from RM988, DiGi from RM1,169 and U Mobile from RM1,099, but there are a lot more to the bundles than the final price of the device.
As you might have heard, Apple will be having a press event this week and rumours are running rampant that the company will be launching new iPad tablets at the event. Well, looks like we don’t have to wait till that event to take at the new iPads as Apple has somehow leaked them out through the official iPad User Guide for iOS 8.1 on iTunes.
