The Samsung Galaxy Note II was announced about 2 months ago at IFA 2012. Now it is finally available in Singapore.

Loop & Meet (SingTel link) is an App by SingTel that allows you to manage RSVP to your events. It is different from Facebook Event because each of your guest will receive an SMS for your event and they can RSVP to the event by replying to the SMS with a #yes, #no or #maybe. Not everyone check Facebook often, but most do at least reply to SMSes.
In case you are wondering, TGIS stands for Thank Goodness It’s SingTel. TGIS features things Singaporeans are passionate about and helps viewers make sense of the world of gadgets, social media and technology. All episodes of TGIS are shown on SingTel’s YouTube Page.
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.
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.
It seems that SingTel has launched its own version of cloud syncing and storage which is called SingTel Store & Share. Think of it as SingTel’s version of Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive or even Dropbox.
Right now SingTel’s Store & Share only supports PC, iOS and Android platform. No support for Mac yet.
Interesting! SingTel is bringing in the 3G/WiFi PlayStation Vita to Singapore! It will be on sale from 14th April 2012. The RRP of it is S$469 and of course if you get it from SingTel, it will be subsidized (price plans located at the bottom of this post)
You can pre-order the PS Vita online at singtel.com/PSVita from today (28th March 2012). Pre-order customers will receive S$20 worth of Sony PlayStation Network credits to purchase games.
Bought the Galaxy Nexus (White) from SingTel Shop at ComCenter on the 18th February 2012. Initally, 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 wants 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.
