Maxis today launched its suite of multi-play services called Maxis Home Services which will be rolled out in Q3 2011. Maxis Home Services describes many services ranging from access to voice, high speed Internet, value-added services, and content.
Just a few months back, we witnessed the launch of Malaysia’s new wireless broadband service, powered by the multinational conglomerate YTL Corp’s subsidiary YTL Communications. Labelled YES 4G, the WIMAX-based broadband service promises to bring Internet connectivity to the masses. Yes, Internet for everyone.
The Android market has grown exponentially over the past year and this onslaught has been much attributed to the barrage of devices from hardware vendors worldwide. Samsung has secured itself as one of the major players in the Android device market, battling head on with smartphone giants HTC and Motorola. With a slew of impressive premium mobile products under its belt that include the high-end Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and the 7-inch tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Korean electronics monolith crashes the low-end Android party with a new entry-level touchscreen smartphone – the Samsung Galaxy 5.
This little Galaxy 5 runs Android OS v2.1 (Eclair). Shame that it isn’t the much-anticipated Froyo yet but definitely a step up from v1.6 (Donut) being offered by some out there in the market. This pits it head-on with the Motorola Citrus, Sony XPERIA X8/X10, LG GT540 Optimus and HTC Tattoo. For a sub-USD200 (SRP: RM699) device, it packs quite a buffet of features. Which begs the question – is there such a thing as “cheap and cheerful”? Read on.
In about 14 hours, Yes 4G will be officially launched to the masses. Positive change is coming!
The 4G race is hotting up with P1 4G (rebranded from P1W1MAX) announcing a slew of new products and packages last week, hot on the heels of the recently launched “Stronger, Wider, Faster by the Day” campaign. About 30 bloggers (some familiar faces, some new), opinion leaders and tech heads including people like K. Kugan aka scamboy of Malaysianwireless.com fame, Mike Campton of 8TV, attended a special private event at Frames Cafe in Sunway Pyramid. The new line-up of devices includes a powerful new portable USB modem named “Super W1GGY” UH-235 and MF-230, a slick portable personal hotspot (MiFi) device which allow for internet access sharing via multiple devices).
An official email from Yes has announced temporary interconnect issues with number blocks from 018-331xxxx and 018-332xxxx series. For those who pre-registered their Yes ID, you would have also selected a 018 number of your choice.
Over 30 invited guests inclusive of bloggers, tech heads, opinion leaders and other special guests congregated at Cafe Vienna, Lot 10 last week for a special preview of YTL Communications’ Yes 4G broadband service.
