Xiaomi has been quiet beyond its weekly flash sales recently, but behind the scenes the company is working on expanding its after-sales services. Several people have spotted that a Xiaomi service centre is set to open in Plaza Low Yat within the heart of Kuala Lumpur to cater for the increasingly large Xiaomi user base in the country.
Sony has just opened up a preorder for its latest tablet – the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (LTE), for RM1,699. The company just started sending out preorder emails to those who registered their interest for the device, and it also comes with either freebies, or purchase with purchase promotion allowing you to pick either a docking station, QX10 Lens-style camera or more.
By now it should be no surprise that mobile device manufacturers will release a new generation device every year (except Sony). Last September, Samsung took the curtains off its Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) and since it’s been over a year now, it’s time for an update. A device with the name “Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2015 Edition)” recently popped up in Samsung’s website.
Apple has a habit of not going into full details about the hardware they use on their devices, but that doesn’t stop us from finding out. According to benchmark scores found on 2 different benchmark websites, the beefed up A8X chip used on the iPad Air 2 has 3-cores clocked at 1.5GHz and as expected, is paired with 2GB of RAM.
Apple has finally revealed its Q4 2014 financial results. Thanks to strong iPhone, Mac and App Store sales, the company is reporting US$42.1 billion in revenue and US$8.5 billion in net profit. In the same quarter last year, Apple reported revenue of $37.5 billion and net profit of US$7.5 billion.
It is yet another big day for Apple as the company has unveiled plenty of new products to the world earlier today including iPad Mini 3, iPad Air 2, refreshed Mac Mini and 27-inch iMac with 5K display. Additionally, the company has also announced the availability of OS X Yosemite and for iOS users out there, the iOS 8.1 update.
Like a clockwork, shortly after Apple’s event to unveil the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, the Cupertino has revised the price of its existing iPads. Get the iPad Air from RM1,279 and the current iPad mini with Retina Display from RM929.
[Update] We forgot to add in that Apple is still offering the first ever iPad mini at a much lower price from only RM799.
Somewhat reluctantly, Apple quickly announced the new iPad mini 3 shortly after announcing the iPad Air 2. The new smaller iPad received very little on-stage time unlike the new iPad Air and the new iMac with Retina Display, and it is likely due to the lack of proper hardware improvements over last year’s iPad mini with Retina Display.
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.
