In case you are unaware, Samsung announced Samsung Galaxy SIII which is the successor to the Galaxy SII and their flagship mobile phone at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 yesterday in London.
Samsung provided a live stream to the event but apparently the NDA for the Samsung Galaxy SIII of those major tech sites was lifted right before the event. So it is weird to see so much details of the phone even before the person went up on stage to officially announced it.
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.
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.
Bought the Galaxy Nexus (White) from SingTel Shop at ComCenter on the 18th February 2012. Initially, the white color is only available online via SingTelShop.com. Since I am already at the physical store, so I thought no harm trying my luck to ask the Customer Service Officer (CSO) and to my surprise, they have it in-store at ComCenter! So those who want white, take note of this!
I ported Li Xiang over from M1 to SingTel and she signed a 2-year 3G Flexi Lite contract which cost S$39 per month. After telecom subsidy, the phone cost S$488.
Announced at CES 2012, Sony Xperia S (the link is still pointing to SonyEricsson.com) is Sony’s first smartphone after she broke up with Ericsson.
The specs for Sony Xperia S is pretty impressive (1.5GHz Dual-Core + 1GB RAM) and it does supports NFC as well. The only complaint I have is it should be launching with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) instead of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It will be available in 2 colors, black or white.
