One month after iPhone 5S, Apple released iPad Air and new iPad mini with Retina Display to replace the 4th Gen iPad and former iPad mini.
iPad Air is just 7.5mm thin(28% thinner than the old one) and weigh at only 1 pound(20% lighter than the old one),however, the CPU and graphic performance comes to be 2 times more powerful than the old one and still maintaining up to 10 hours battery (thanks to the A7 chip).
iPad Air has 2 antennas so that it could provide more stable and much faster wifi connections.It also supports more LTE bands for wifi+cellular models.
iPad Air also has new smart cover to match the style.
iPad mini with Retina Display
Many people hope to get an iPad mini with Retina Display and now here it is.
The new iPad mini has also worked with A7 chip.Thus, it has 4X CPU performance,8X graphics performance compared to the 1st Gen iPad mini and gets 10 hours battery life.Same as iPad Air,it has 2 antennas to get better wifi connections and samrt cover and case to keep your device protected in style.
TM runs Streamyx Zone WiFi service for years and now Maxis joins to provide WiFi service in public area too.Of course,it’s payable.
If you go to a place showing this logo,that means Maxis WiFi is available in that area.Well,I don’t think you could see this logo frequently as the service area is quite limited currently,most of them are shopping centers and commercial buildings.Sunway Pyramid,KLCC,Imbi Plaza,Menara Maxis,IOI Mall,Phileo Damansara,Jaya One are in the list.You could check more details here.
The service is only available for currently Maxis users(both prepaid and postpaid) and have several packages to choose.
I checked everywhere but found that Maxis didn’t disclose how fast the WiFi connection could be.Well,I think we have to wait somebody to test it later.
Twitter just followed the step of Gmail to set the option to let the users visit it by https connection.
If you always visit Twitter under a open and shared network such as unsecured WiFi connections,you’d better to opt it to ensure that your information will not be hijacked easily.
Some Twitter clients have been providing the service via https,however that’s not all.I hope they could improve it as faster as they can because quite a number of people login into Twitter though the clients in public area by WiFi.If you always login to Twitter by mobile browsers,make sure you key in https instead of http.
Have a secured surfing!
I think many people had a sleepless night to wait for the event of being held by Apple.We all believe that the event was for iPad 2 and some related product.Well,it’s been approved to be correct.
After months of negotiations,China Unicom finally signed the agreement with Apple to solely sell iPhone in China market officially from this coming September.
In fact,it is not a piece of news which can surprise people as many rumors came out during the past months.However,the result may not be so great.The disclosed information says the first batch of iPhone China version will remain almost all functions except WIFI.Thus,if you want to buy that iPhone,I think you’d better to sign a data plan first.
I also think some potential users will feel disappointed on cutting down WIFI in this iPhone China version.Instead,they will go to buy it from other sources.
China Unicom,you should be smarter a bit.At least,you should know that China Telecom is planning to introduce Palm Pre in China market and Lenovo oPhone will come to China Mobile as well.The competitions will be drastic!
