Samsung has finally launched its most stunning tablet device yet, to the Malaysian market – the stunning GALAXY Tab 7.7, the world’s first tablet to feature a Super AMOLED Plus display. Encased with an all-new metal backing (yes, to less plastic!), the desirable tablet is equipped with a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor and runs Google Android Honeycomb 3.2. The GALAXY Tab 7.7 weighs only 340 grams and is an anorexic 7.89mm thin.399 0
Yes, one of the most advanced 4G networks in the world, announced the launch of “Yes Artist of the Month” last week, a program crafted to give up-and-coming independent local musicians and bands a platform to showcase their talent. Independent talent will be handpicked to play live at the Yes Flagship Store in Lot 10 on a regular basis.
It’s difficult not to think ‘fragmentation’ when we mention Android. Different flavours, OS versions, hardware, bundled apps. If you think the layman would get confused in the sea of Android devices, well, you have every right to think that way. Fragmentation, though, means choice. And differentiation. While some may like a plain vanilla Android experience like on the Galaxy Nexus, some may prefer skinned options like Samsung TouchWIZ, Motorola MotoBLUR or HTC Sense.415 1
It’s finally here. Officially anyways. Much to the delight of many Malaysians, Samsung and Google has announced the introduction of the much-awaited GALAXY Nexus superphone to the Malaysian market. The GALAXY Nexus is the world’s first smartphone to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwichout of the box. The GALAXY Nexus is what’s called a ‘Pure Google’ experience, similar to all other in the Nexus series of Google phones – sans any third-party custom UI layer on top. The GALAXY Nexus features a yummilicious 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED display (supporting 1280×720 pixel resolution) and 1.2Ghz dual core processor.
As previewed hands-on in Jakarta during the Samsung GALAXY Note World Tour last year, I have the opinion that the GALAXY Nexus-Ice Cream Sandwich combination is the ultimate partnership in the smartphone experience. Zippy, intuitive and sexy, the GALAXY Nexus is certainly a much-desired mobile device in this point in time.
If you didn’t already know, Yes 4G had recently announced its collaboration with Samsung Malaysia to launch a special bundle in conjunction with the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 8.9. The venerable Yes Huddle 4G mobile router cuddles with the new Tab, bringing to Malaysians the best in mobility and performance.
The package offers a total savings of RM159 as compared to when the devices are purchased separately.
It’s official! The new Motorola RAZR was announced yesterday for the Malaysian market, and it certainly lives up to its predecessor’s name. This phone is THIN! Officially tagged as “Impossibly Thin”, which we agree, the RAZR slices in at only 7.1mm thick – that’s 16% thinner than the Galaxy S II (8.49mm) and 19% thinner than the iPad 2 (8.8mm).
Thin doesn’t necessarily mean weak though – the RAZR boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB DDR2 RAM, loaded with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich when it’s available). Also, it has an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, as well as a 1.3MP front-facing camera for webcam junkies. It’s powered by a non-removable 1780mAh battery, which should provide enough juice to run most of the day. We’ll update on this when we get a unit for review.
