Because of Hurricane Sandy,Google cancelled the event to officially release Nexus 4,the new flagship Android phone in Nexus series;Nexus 7,with lower prices and bigger storage;Nexus 10,the 10 inch Android tablet with the latest functions and powerful hardware.However,all have been pushed into Google Play Store online.
Nexus 4 is the smallest one among all new products,however,it has a powerful heart.This flagship Android phone is built by LG,working with the latest 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor and 2GB RAM.
The 4.7 inch 1280X768(320ppi) display screen is really amazing.It’s tough as it is covered and protected by scratch resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2.
The 8MP camera will never let you lose a scene.It now supports 360° panoramas with the new feature in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean called ‘Photo Sphere’.
After all,the most amazing thing is about the price-8GB version selling at US$299 while 16GB version selling at US$349.I think that is really a bargain as It even supports DC-HSPA+(42Mbps).
Xiaomi is a Chinese mobile phone company.It’s quite young and before this Xiaomi 2,it had only one product released to the market one year ago,the original Xiaomi Phone.
The founder of Xiaomi,Lei Jun is a fan of Steve Jobs.He wants to make every product with excellent performance and fresh design.After one year of first product,he released two products: Xiaomi 1S(S=speed) & Xiaomi 2.
Xiaomi 1S is treated as an upgraded version of its predecessor.Quite similar look,but much powerful processor(1.7Ghz dual core) and camera(Front:new 200M pixel,Rear:800M pixel Back-illuminated).
More people have their eyes on another product:Xiaomi 2.It’s newly designed structure and working with the most powerful and advanced Quad-core processor from Qualcomm up to date.
The Quad-core processor is made with 28nm Krait Technology,that means it could run at the top speed(1.5Ghz) with a better power management.2GB RAM makes less lag on running multiple tasks and 16GB ROM gives you enough storage and great response time.Adreno 320 is first to use in the market,it’s said to be as powerful as Xbox 360.Well,it’s really crazy for a phone.
Xiaomi 2 also has a 4.3 inch retina display with 342PPI,even better than iPhone 4s.The One-glass solution helps to reduce the thickness of the screen,providing better display effects.
The F2.0 back-illuminated rear camera can stand for 27mm super angle and both cameras can shoot 1080P HD video.
Xiaomi 2 also is capable with dual antenna technology.That could significantly improve the stability of voice and data connection in any condition.
The short battery hour is always a kind of headache for the users.Xiaomi 2 provides 2000Mah standard battery and a thicker 3000Mah for additional purchase.That definitely could secure a 2-day use for most people.
The official video introduces more stuff there.Let’s have a look! Continue reading
Google always intends to improve the connection quality and several months ago,they started Google Fibre Project to build up fibre optics connections in some cities.Currently,Kansas City,Kansas and Kansas City,Missouri have covered by the service.It’s now open to pre-register and several packages are provided.
The free Internet provides 5Mbps speed,but need to pay $300 one-time construction fee while the other two plans have construction fee waived.
You should have noticed that with the most expensive Gigabit+TV plan,the user could have the latest Google tablet-Nexus 7. That’s really awesome and it only costs $120 monthly-for all of those.
Currently I’m using TM Unifi VIP 20 plan which costs RM249($79) monthly in Malaysia.Compared to Google Fibre 1 gig plan,it’s 50 times slower and only 50% cheaper.
It’s really a shame!
After a month of waiting,Apple’s fans in Malaysia finally could get the new iPad in hand on this Friday(20 April 2012).
The prices in Ringgit haven’t been released yet.
However,according to Apple’s tradition,they should be labeled from RM1599 for 4G LTE version and in the meantime,iPad 2 will reduce the price too.
Machines-the authorized Apple store in Malaysia just released the prices for the new iPads:
- iPad 16GB WiFi RM1,499
- iPad 32GB WiFi RM1,799
- iPad 64GB WiFi RM2,099
- iPad 16GB WiFi+4G RM1,899
- iPad 32GB WiFi+4G RM2,199
- iPad 64GB WiFi+4G RM2,499
Obviously,it’s a bit expensive than iPad 2.But according to some third party’s findings,the material costs for the new iPad is definitely higher than iPad 2,I think we could understand why Apple tags a higher price on the new ones.
There are some people waiting outside Machines over night.They all want to get the new iPad once it opens to sell tomorrow morning.
How many of you are waiting to get one?Will there be another long queue outside the authorized stores?Let’s see!
