The Samsung Galaxy Note II was announced about 2 months ago at IFA 2012. Now it is finally available in Singapore.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE is now available in Singapore (as of Saturday, 20th October 2012) for a recommended retail price (RRP) of S$998 without contract. The price stated is inclusive of 7% GST.
On the 20th December 2011, SingTel launches the first LTE service in Singapore and it is available to both consumer and business users. The new LTE service will initially be available for USB dongle modems only. It will be enhanced to support LTE-enabled smartphones and tablets when they become more readily available in the market.
The new LTE Broadband on Mobile (BBOM) plan is called Mobile Prestige 75.
Could not make it for this event as it is held during office hours, but nevertheless, I want to see how LTE can take mobile network to the next level. With the increasing number of smartphone users in the market, the demand for faster bandwidth and speed for mobile data transfer have also increased. I hope they do eventually trial the LTE in the MRT as I can’t even get a proper 3G signal in the MRT (blue and red line).
