I was pretty disappointed with the announcement because practically all the leaks came out to be 100% accurate so it somehow spoils the fun.
The Lumia 920 will come with a 8.7MP camera with Nokia PureView technology, the screen is a 4.5″ (1280 x 768) with PureMotion HD+ technology and it comes with Wireless Charging using Qi. Check out the PureView technology and PureMotion HD+ display on the Nokia Lumia 920 page for more information.
Let me start off this review by saying that the Nokia Lumia 900 is what the Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 7.5 should have been. The Nokia Lumia 800 felt like a rush job and Nokia Lumia 900 felt just right. Unfortunately, Microsoft just killed all the current Windows Phones out in the market with the announcement of Windows Phone 8 by saying that all current Windows Phone will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 8 and that includes the Nokia Lumia series.
If you are still interested in getting a Nokia Lumia 900, it is currently retailing for S$849 (including taxes & without contract) at all 3 operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub) in Singapore. I do hope that Nokia have some sort of attractive trade-in offers for current Lumia owners to upgrade to a new Lumia with Windows Phone 8 that will be announced at Nokia World 2012 (wild guess).
HTC One S will be available in Singapore from this Saturday, 16th June 2012 for S$948. Only 1 color is available which is the Gradient Metal. When you buy the phone, it comes with a free Beats Solo Headset.
Nokia 808 PureView is now available in Singapore at a RRP of S$839 (without contract and including 7% GST).
At launch time, both black and white will be available. No word on the red though.
In short, this will affect new and re-contracting customers from 1st July 2012. SingTel decreases data bundle from 12GB to 2GB (2GB is for Flexi Lite, which most of us are on) and increases SMS quota from 550 to 800! Looks like we need to SMS more instead of Whatsapp.
I am pretty disappointed with this announcement actually. Instead of fixing the problem, they chose to cap everybody. Instead of fixing the overloaded base station, they chose to spend S$12 million to buy hungrygowhere.
Samsung Galaxy SIII will be available in Singapore from Wednesday, 30th May 2012. It will be retailing for S$998 (including taxes & without contract) at all 3 operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub) in Singapore.
Preorders will begin the day before on Tuesday, 29th May 2012. For M1, the launch event is at M1 Shop Paragon on the 29th May 2012 from 9pm till 12am. StarHub will also start from 9pm on the 29th at their shops but only for customers who have indicated their interest with them previously.
Sony Xperia P will be retailing for S$688 in silver and black.
Nokia Lumia 900 will be available in Singapore from Saturday, 26th May 2012. It will be retailing for S$849 (including taxes & without contract) at all 3 operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub) in Singapore.
The unit available in Singapore will be the non-LTE version and instead it will be running on HSDPA+ which gives you up to 42Mbps download speed. I will not put high hopes on that in Singapore *.
