On the day of the launching of Samsung Galaxy S II, Maxis also launched HTC’s most powerful smartphone, HTC Sensation. You can get HTC Sensation at RM1,399 with 1.5GB/3GB data plan on a 24-months contract or Rm1,599 with 500MB data plan on a 24 months contract. It seems that Maxis are more biased towards Samsung Galaxy S II with its grand launch and the discounts that they are offering.

According to IMCC website, Motorola Xoom 3G is already available for order. And the price is RM2,599. RM500 more expensive than Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi only. Does the RM500 justify the need to have 3G connection on the go?
For me, I will sugggest you to subscribe to Yes 4G (RM68 valuepack) and get its Yes Huddle (RM399) and you still get RM33 back. (RM500 – RM399 – RM68 = RM33). You can treat me for makan(food) with that extra RM33. Better Internet speed than 3G and you can let maximum 5 people to connect to Internet and without draining your tablet’s battery. Wi-Fi doesn’t consume more battery juice than 3G.
Yup. You read it right! RM799 only. But you are a seasoned consumer in this telecommunications field, right? You won’t think that you will get it at RM799 only without contract, right? Yeah, to get Samsung Galaxy S II at this price you need to sign a 24-month contract of 3GB data plan with Maxis.
Yup. In the next few weeks time, check your App Store (or check my blog for updates) to download the official Facebook App from Facebook Inc.
It is said that Facebook app is already in its final stages of testing after being in production for almost a year. Last time, Facebook has managed to release iPhone Facebook app in time with the launch of Apple App Store in July 2008. After more than a year of the launch of iPad, there’s still no official app from Facebook. What we have are third party App for Facebook like MyPad, Friendly, iFace and etc which I found that are not satisfactory. Those third party apps for Facebook are very buggy and are not fully optimized for iPad.
The price for Samsung Galaxy S II (SGS2) in the grey market has dropped a lot ever since Samsung Galaxy S II is confirmed to launch next week. From RM2,599, the price of SGS2 has dropped to RM2,099. Does this indicate that the official Samsung Galaxy S II will be RM2,099? It should be somewhere around there since HTC Sensation is priced at RM2,299.
