Oppo Electronics Malaysia will be opening pre-orders for the new Find 7a (not the high-end Find 7 model) next week starting from April 16. The Snapdragon 800-toting smartphone is scheduled to officially be available in Malaysia on May 15, and will retail for a eye-wateringly low price of RM1598.
One of my fondest gaming memories was playing Total Annihilation back in 1997. It was a time when Cavedog Entertainment provided new units to use every month; free of charge. These new units weren’t all that game-changing either; just nice additions to the already massive arsenal that few other games have managed to provide. Things have changed a lot since then.
Steam users have been advised to change their passwords and reset Steamguard as Valve has patched the Heartbleed vulnerability. The service experienced several issues with developer passwords being compromised and the name of some games (Dino D-day, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and South Park: The Stick of Truth) changed to warning messages about resetting developer passwords.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is now officially available in Malaysia today. Samsung Malaysia has clearly pulled out all the stops in its bid to hype up what has been billed as the most important Galaxy device for Samsung to date. Here’s all you need to know about the Galaxy S5 and where you can buy the device. Oh, and we’ve included a little tip at the end as well.
It feels like everyone is getting on the MOBA bandwagon. While Dota 2 and League of Legends are currently ruling the roost, EA has opened their own take on the genre for open beta. Called Dawngate, it provides several changes to the regular formula. Whether these changes will be enough to gain a foothold in the market, but it is worth a try.
Waking up early to attend Celcom’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 paid off for retired military office Abdul Hamid Husin as he was gifted the smartphone for being the first in line. Abdul Hamid had arrived to the queue at 6.30am, despite the Blue Cube in Sunway Pyramid only opening it’s doors at 10am.
Earlier we wrote about Sony’s latest camera to bolster its A7 family, the A7s. The incredible camera has the ability to go right up to the upper echelons of ISO 409,600 expanded which matches the top end Nikon D4s which is definitely a much more expensive camera. So what is 409,600 like?
Nikon have just released the latest model in their 1 series of mirrorless interchangeable cameras the J4. While it improves various specs like putting in a 18.4MP sensor, new touch screen and allowing you to shoot 1080p/60fps or 720p/120fps the biggest improvement that comes with the J4 is the ability to shoot at 20fps burst mode. Made possible with the new Expeed 4A imaging engine, there is basically no reason to buy the older J3 now.
Unfortunately the J4 also uses MicroSD instead of the regular SD but to make the camera smaller than its predecessor at 232g and 99.5 x 60 x 28.5mm.
The 1 J4 will be available in Orange, Silver, White and Black and will start selling in May 2014. Price is unavailable at this point.
So we’ve shared with you a price comparison of some of the more mainstream cloud storage services available but it looks like in the recent week, there are more for you to pick from with very, very attractive rates. For light users, you can get extra storage from as low as USD$0.99/year or if you’re a heavy user, you can get 1TB of cloud storage for a very affordable price; yes, even cheaper than what Google is offering now.
As you might know, Project Ara is an on-going effort by Google to develop modular smartphones. Frankly speaking, that idea might initially sounds like something from science fiction books but the Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects team that is in charge of the project is already coming closer to their objective judging from the recently released video update.
If that video update doesn’t satisfy your curiosity about Project Ara though, then it is time to check out the newly released Project Ara Module Development Kit (MDK) v0.10.
It was launched in Beijing last month but somehow, the new Oppo Find 7 has yet to be made available for general consumers. Even in its native market of China, Oppo has only released the 1080p version of the device which is called the Find 7a.
It seems there is one exception though. Somehow, Oppo has decided to release the new Find 7 in Philippines today – ahead of any markets throughout the world.
