Xiaomi’s updated Redmi Note, which now supports 4G LTE connectivity, has just been announced. Unfortunately, it is only compatible with China Mobile’s TDD-LTE network, which is not supported anywhere else in the world. Xiaomi has reached out to us with more information about the availability of the new phablet for international markets.
Xiaomi’s latest flagship smartphone, the highly-anticipated Mi 4, has just been announced. Featuring top-tier specs while still maintaining the same price tag as its previous flagship, some will consider the Mi 4 to be the true 2014 flagship killer – a term coined by another Chinese smartphone company, OnePlus.
However, there has been some confusion about the Mi 4′s LTE capabilities. This being a device made in China, many consider the Mi 4′s LTE radios to not be compatible with the LTE bands outside of China. We spoke to a Xiaomi rep earlier to clarify the matter.
At Google’s I/O developer conference this year, the company has revealed more about its latest platform built just for wearables: Android Wear. Signalling a huge push for wearables from Google, the company has shown off more details about the platform’s UI and its stunning integration with Android as well as the Android TV platform.
BlackBerry haven’t been having the greatest last 12 months, losing their CEO and BB10 not getting the reception they had hoped. With John Chen taking the helm things have finally come with some semblance of stability and in one of the most pessimistic headlines ever from their Q4 earnings, BlackBerry didn’t lose AS MUCH as we thought.
The BlackBerry Z3 is the first of the new family of BB10 devices that BlackBerry are releasing. Codenamed Jakarta, the Z3 has already been in the wild for a month or 2, making its debut in Indonesia and drawing smatterings of praise from the people who were fortunate to get their hands on one. We managed to get our hands on a Z3 ahead of its local launch today and we are pretty impressed with what we found. Rome wasn’t built in a day, BlackBerry won’t be rebuilt in one either. This is a wonderful start to the FY15 set of devices and a great value proposition for its price.
More after the jump
Today after a 9 month long quiet period on the device front (since the Z30 in Malaysia), BlackBerry have announced the arrival of the Z3 to Malaysian shores. While released earlier this May in Indonesia, the BlackBerry Z3 is only now making its way over here but to the BlackBerry faithful, it couldn’t be sooner. The BlackBerry Z3 is the first of the new FY15 devices from the leaked slide we’ve seen earlier last week and while it’s priced moderately, the finish and internals are anything but.

UPDATE 1624hrs: Facebook is back up, but content is slow to refresh
Much to the dismay of most of Malaysia (one of the world’s most connected nation in relation to average Facebook friends), visitors to Facebook have noticed that instead of a feed filled with food and baby pictures, they were met with this notice. For the moment Facebook continues to be inaccessible and productivity across the country has increased, well of course until everyone gets on twitter and instagram.
Is Facebook up for anyone or is it a complete outage?
