For Samsung fans,March 14 is a magical day because the next remarkable smartphone will be released on that day.More and more rumors spread out everywhere and some of them seem to be so real.
@evleaks always has some ways to reveal information before the official release including this time.

You can see some specifications.But from my view,the look is a bit similar with iPad mini.Do you think so?
As a long-time Android user,I’m now not only considering the hardware spec,but also the optimizations on software(apps,OS etc) to have better battery consumption and system stability/enhancements.Apple always does it well and I hope the competitors could learn from it.
Anyway,we will know if Samsung learns something good from Apple after 9 days.Stay tuned!
Update: It had been approved to be fake.@evleaks is losing the credit this time.However,someone inside Samsung just told the media that Samsung Galaxy S 4 will keep using plastic materials instead of metal materials.I think it would be sad news to lots of fans.
Apple just released a piece of official announcement claiming that more than 50 countries will start to sell iPhone 5 by the end of December.Malaysia finally is in this list and December 14 is that amazing day!
iPhone 5 will be available in South Korea on Friday, December 7 and on Friday, December 14 in Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Grenada, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan, Kuwait, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. iPhone 5 will also be available on Friday, December 21 in Barbados, Botswana, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Egypt, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Senegal, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St.Vincent & the Grenadines, Tunisia, Uganda and Vietnam.
Well,for some people,the Christmas shopping list will be a bit longer,right?Money is always not enough.
Update:Maxis and Celcom have started to push out a page to register your interest on iPhone 5.Please click the following links to do the ROI in order to get the latest information of sales of iPhone 5.
Yes,after tons of rumors spreading around,Apple sent out batches of invitations to the medias,inviting them to attend the event organised on 23 October 2012 at the California Theatre in San Jose.
As you may notice in the invitation,there is a word ‘little’ in the sentence.It’s so easy to make people link it into iPad mini,the smaller size of iPad which may directly compete with Nexus 7 and coming Microsoft Surface.Will it be attractive?
Well,waiting for another week and I’m sure we could know what exactly it is.
Microsoft finally starts the pre-order of its latest tablet “Surface” before Apple officially introduces new products from them(most probably “iPad Mini”).The shipment date will be 26 October,2012.
In the official website of Surface, the pre-order prices are from US$499 and current version of Surface is based on Windows RT,the new version of Windows designed for ARM-based tablets and PCs.
Let us check the details of specifications:
Will this be able to beat with Apple iPad series?I think content is the most important element for tablets.Surface could only be successful until they have the app store with almost the same quality as Apple has and it really takes time.
Although Apple iPhone 5 has not yet officially sold in Malaysia,there are still quite a number of fans getting it from Singapore,Hong Kong or even US.As iPhone 5 is using Nano SIM and it can’t be easily resized from standard SIM or Micro SIM,any telcos who can provide Nano SIM earlier will definitely get the new customers.
Maxis and DiGi are the two telcos have the advantages now.Maxis has officially to provide Nano SIM from 24 September,2012 in some selected service centers in the Klang Valley specifically KLCC, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Sunway Pyramid and The Gardens as well as in Queensbay Mall in Penang and Danga Bay in Johor Bahru.It will be made available nationwide by late September.Maxis prices the Nano SIM at RM25.
DiGi,on the other hand,will start to provide Nano SIM from 26 September,2012.It’ll be free to the customers who sign up for any its Smart Plan or Postpaid Plus at selected DiGi outlets in the Klang Valley and will be made available nationwide by early October this year.
Yesterday,iPhone 5 was officially introduced in Apple event.iPhone 5 is claimed to be the slimmest and fastest iPhone up to date.
iPhone 5 has a quite-iPhone-style appearance,however,it’s actually redesigned from inside to outside.This latest iPhone is claimed to be 18% thinner,20% lighter and less 12% weight than its predecessor-iPhone 4s.
But less weight doesn’t mean to cut anything,in the contrast,it’s still being enhanced.iPhone 5 features a 4-inch retina display.That will definitely give you more convenience to type and read stuff.Apple also said that the new display will show a vivid and lifelike effect,even better than iPhone 4S.
LTE support is another revolution in this phone,providing up to 100Mbps connection.At the same time,iPhone 5 also supports HSPA,HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA in cellular network;Dual-band 802.11n WiFi connection up to 150 Mbps.Apple said they’ve done a lot of optimizing work on better battery life,especially for LTE connection.However,we could only see the result after the real testing.
A6 chip is first time to use on iPhone and it’s not only performing better than A5 chip(CPU & Graphics),but also saving battery life-twice faster than A5 chip with up to 8 hours of browsing on a cellular connection, up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 10 hours of video playback time.
The latest generation of iSight camera now can support panorama shooting and the front-facing camera can support 720P HD video shooting.
Apple also introduced the new lightning 8 Pin connector,making it smaller,smarter,durable and reversible.You could get 30 Pin adapter to support your old i-devices too.
Apple also officially released the new maps designed by their own.It’s said to be much smooth and responsive than the old Google Maps,giving out real-time traffic information and reroute automatically.But will it run that great?I have my doubt.
Siri in iPhone 5 could answer you more,including sports scores and stats, where to eat, what movies to see — even ask Siri to make Facebook posts or tweet for you.Of course,more languages will be supported soon.
