Monitor is like a computer, once you upgrade, you will never look back. Few years ago, 17″ monitor is the norm, now is 24″ and in a few years time 27″/30″ will be the norm.
When I first saw the Innergie Magic Cable – 3-in-1 Retractable USB Cable (Amazon.com link), it was at Challenger in VivoCity last year, but when I wanted to get it, it was out of stock and hence I settled for the 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Cable from Deal Extreme.
During my vacation in Thailand, I spotted it again in Power Buy, a shop located in CentralPlaza Bangna shopping center. It cost TH฿390 (S$16) and of course, it goes without saying, I bought it. In fact, it is the only thing that I bought in Thailand during my 4 days vacation over there.
I have problems finding MHL cables in Singapore for my Galaxy Nexus. MHL stands for Mobile High-Definition Link and here is the definition from Wikipedia:
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a proposed industry standard for a mobile audio/video interface for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics (CE) devices to high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays. The MHL standard features a single cable with a low pin-count interface able to support up to 1080p high-definition (HD) video and digital audio while simultaneously charging the connected device.
I was sent the Chef Sleeve (for iPad) for review all the way from the US. The Chef Sleeve is essentially a transparent plastic bag that you can place your iPad in when you are using it in the kitchen when cooking or baking.
This ensure that your iPad will not be dirtied by the grease on your finger or flour on the table when you need to use it in the kitchen (for checking recipes online or even watching YouTube for cooking/baking tutorial).
Before the summary, lets check out some of the videos that is filmed during Mobile World Congress 2012 by Nokia Connects featuring a skateboarder, free runner and BMX rider using the social features of the Nokia Lumia 900!
Before we start the post, lets take a look at one of the photo taken by Nokia 808 PureView:
How about one more?
The Nokia Lumia 900 was announced back in CES 2012 which supports LTE and exclusive to AT&T. During Mobile World Congress 2012, Nokia announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 will also be available in a HSDPA+ Dual Carrier (DC-HSPA) variant, for high speed data connection (42Mbps download) in countries where LTE is not available (like Singapore).
It seems that for the upload part, we are still stick with HSUPA instead of HSUPA+ Dual Carrier (DC-HSUPA) as it has not been completed.
Nokia Lumia 610 is the only new Lumia phone announced at MWC 2012 (Nokia Lumia 900 was announced at CES 2012). It is announced in conjunction with Microsoft’s strategy of lowering the minium hardware requirements and hence the cost of Windows Phone to consumers.
Windows Phone OS now supports a lower cost processor, the Qualcomm 7x27a “system on a chip” running at 600MHz with reduced memory of at least 256MB and hence making it more affordable to emerging markets.
The first 3 new phones to be announced at Mobile World Congress 2012 were the Nokia Asha 202, Nokia Asha 203 and Nokia Asha 302. Nokia Asha family of phones are affordable and targeted at the emerging markets and they are first introduced in Nokia World 2011.
All Nokia Asha phones are powered by Series 40 (S40) OS. If you notice the Nokia Asha 202, 203 & 302 comes with a metallic bevel to give users a feel that this is a premium product as users from emerging markets associate metal with premium. The Nokia Asha 302 also comes with a metallic back cover.
But because the Purity HD Stereo Headset is Fuchsia (Pink) in color, he don’t really like it. So I swapped with him as I can give it (Purity HD Stereo Headset) to my wife.
