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.
Months ago,U Mobile started to share with Maxis for its infrastructure in order to expand its 3G network to nationwide.Since then,the 3G coverage on U Mobile in West Malaysia came to be good.Well,recently it started the expansion in East Malaysia and the major cities and towns there had 3G service already.
U Mobile’s 3G network supports up to 42Mbps DC-HSPA+ .The collaboration with Maxis will let U Mobile expand faster and save more capital.I believe it will also benefit on deploying 4G LTE network which U Mobile maybe will start the service in the year.
Anyway,as a user of U Mobile,I feel some service downgrade in terms of speed and downtime.I hope they could improve the service continuously with the growth of the number of users and don’t let me down.

After months of testing and fixing,WordPress 3.2 comes officially.It’s said to make it faster and lighter.
Inside the new version,a refreshed dashboard design is created.I feel it is much clearer than the old one and loads faster as they declared.They also create a new official theme-new Twenty Eleven theme which is fully coded by HTML5 as they promised before that they would design a new theme every year.
The best part in this latest WordPress is the freshest full screen editor.
It’s left nothing but my editing windows,they call it as distraction-free writing or zen mode.
More improvements and bug fixes in this build give users better experience.WordPress takes a 3-minutes video clip to show us how it could work fantastically.
After watching this,I bet you wanna upgrade your blog platform to this awesome one.
Oh,they also said that more good stuff will be available in next batch,WordPress 3.3.You’ll stay tuned,won’t you?
