U Mobile today introduces new unlimited Internet prepaid plan UMI 38 with 500MB high-speed quota,200 minutes talking time and 30 sms for 30 days.It’s said to be the best balanced plan and should fit most people’s daily use.
Well,U Mobile also informed that a new service called ‘Free Messaging’ is available to all UMI 28, UMI 38 and UMI 48 subscribers. ‘Free Messaging’ service is based on the partnership with two popular mobile apps – Kakao Talk and WeChat. It allows KaKao Talk and WeChat users freely chat with friends,send photos or any other in-app features without reducing your data quota.Is that awesome?
U Mobile is very smart.As they are one of the smallest mobile service providers in Malaysia.They are really hard to compete against the giants such as Maxis/Celcom. The best way to attract more customers is to know the trend and produce innovative services .I think now they are on the right track.
Celcom finally reveals the date of officially launching 4G LTE service on the website.It’s tomorrow (23 April 2013) with limited offer for first 1,000 subscribers who sign up for Celcom First Data Pro.
Celcom First Data Pro needs to be paid RM138 monthly for 10GB data volume up to 50Mbps .However,if you’re one of the first 1,000 subscribers,you could get your 4G LTE modem+3 months free subscriptions for only RM199.The following Blue Cube outlets are open for registration of that offer from 23 April:

Spotify works on almost every platform:PC,mobile,tablet etc.You just mean it.
Facebook Home is finally landed in Google Play Store.However,the start is not so great.In current around 1500 ratings,44% of people only rated it for 1 star.
