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.
Both SingTel and Samsung has pledge supports for Team Singapore for the London 2012 Olympics. Samsung will sponsor 60 Samsung Galaxy SIII (White) while SingTel will provide complimentary airtime and data subscriptions to allow them to keep in touch with their family back in Singapore.
For those who wants more details, the press releases from the 2 company are pasted below.
My 4+ years old Hitachi 32″ LCD Television (L32A01A) bought on 30th December 2007 for S$1,099 decided to gave up on me. I think either the back-light bulb was blown or the panel is spoilt. There is sound coming out but no image is being displayed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
