Apple's new iOS 6 comes loaded with new features. From completely new Maps to a new version of the voice-activated personal assistant Siri to Facebook integration. And Passbook—Apple's new app that controls coupons, boarding passes, cards and coupons—is really neat. This version looks quite sweet. These will be the new features of your iPhone and iPad. 1. Siri Siri keeps being updated. The new version on iOS 6 does sports scores and stats. You ask what was the score for the Giants and she will reply that they were downed by the Rangers. It will also tell you about batting averages. Siri is being integrated with Yelp and OpenTable. You could ask for a good italian restaurant near you and she will tell you about the best ones using Yelp information and allow you to make a reservation with your voice using OpenTable. It's also bringing movies with IMDB for reviews and information, and Fandango for tickets. You can ask for a movie that stars your favorite star or director, and she will find them for you. The result screen is quite nice, with integrated Rotten Tomatoes ratings. I wonder how much more useful this will make Siri. Would people use it more now that it has some neat integration with these useful services? Tell us in the comments. Siri is also being updated to other languages. They are adding Canadian French, Spanish for Spain, Mexico and the US. Also Italian in Italy and French, German and Italian dialects for Switzerland. Plus Asian languages: Korean plus Mandarin and Cantonese in China. She will be available on the iPad. Many auto makers—including BMW, GM, Mercedes, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler and Honda—will also integrate Siri in their cars. 2. Facebook integration Facebook is now completely integrated with the iPhone. You will be able post to Facebook from Apple's apps, just like you can do with Twitter. That includes images directly from the Photos albums. Or location from Maps. It's even integrated with Siri. And the Calendar application, so birthdays and events are automatically synchronized at all times with Facebook. 3. New Phone features This is a welcomed surprise: they are updating the Phone application, which has remained almost frozen for all this time. I like this feature, which Nokia already had some years ago: you can reply automatically with a message when someone calls you. The phone will show you a list of messages like "I'll call you later" or "I'm on my way" that you can click and automatically send while rejecting a call.

SIM-free and unlocked HTC One XL is now available in Australia. Currently, Oz residents can only purchase the black version for AU$850 (€660). It will work on every GSM carrier in Australia and on Telstra’s LTE network. In case you are thinking of importing one over, you'd be glad to find out that the HTC One XL supports the needed European GSM and 3G bands as well. There's even support for some of the upcoming LTE networks in Europe working on the 2600MHz band. HTC One XL is similar to the One X we already reviewed, save for the chipset. The One XL uses a Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 SoC with a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 225 GPU. The NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 does not offer native LTE support, which caused the chipset swap. This makes Australia the second country to get a Krait-powered One X after the US, whereAT&T offers it. We already covered its chipset performance and found that it's often doing better than the Tegra 3 in the One X. In fact we are currently putting the final touches to our HTC One X for AT&T review. It should go live later tonight so stick around if you want to learn more about it.
It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S III will be launched here in Malaysia in the very near future, why do we say so? Because our local telcos, or DiGi at least, is readying its preorder page for the device. Over the weekend, DiGi accidentally opened up its ROI page for the upcoming Samsung flagship mobile device that generated a whole load of hype. At the worldwide announcement which happened earlier this month, Samsung revealed that the device will be available in Europe starting from 29 May 2012 while the Malaysian launch is expected to be in early June but from the looks of it, we might be getting it earlier – on the European launch date perhaps? While we’re letting the telcos, presumably all three or even four of them – DiGi, Maxis, Celcom and U Mobile – get their stuffs ready, do stay tuned to Lowyat.NET because we will be getting one in for review very, very soon; ahead of the launch of course. I’m personally psyched, while I’m not a fan of the device because of its shape, it’ll be interesting to see how it performs.
