Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Android 4.4 kitkat
It’s finally here, Google has finally taken the curtains off its Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, showing off all the goodness this new treat brings. In an event in San Francisco, Google introduced the latest Android operating system that is much cleaner and simpler before, making it the perfect mobile OS for every phone, even those cheap entry-level ones with a mere 512MB of RAM.
On top of bringing a whole list of new stuffs with the new OS update from the design to the functionality, Google also updated Google Now and Google Hangout messaging app. First up, Google Now can quickly be activated from the launch screen, has an improved voice recognition, quicker searches, and more cards. Say goodbye to the default messaging app on Android because the new messaging app for Android 4.4 is now known as Google Hangouts; SMSes, instant message, voice and video calling are now done via a single app.
Android 4.4 KitKat is available immediately on the Google Nexus 5 and will be rolled out to the Nexus 4, 7, 10, and Samsung Galaxy S4/ HTC One Google Edition. Sorry Samsung Galaxy Nexus users, Google has already confirmed that it will not be available for your device because it “falls outside of the 18-month update window when Google and others traditionally update devices”.

While the 32GB internal storage does sounds very limiting, users are still able to expand it via T100’s microSD slot which supports microSD card of up to 64GB of storage. At the same time, the T100’s keyboard dock features a full-size USB 3.0 port and a multi-touch touchpad that supports gestures. However, the rest of the I/O ports such 3.5mm combo audio jack, micro USB and micro HDMI together with stereo speakers are all located on the T100’s tablet.

the Official Retail Price for the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S in Malaysia?

We all know that the new iPhone will be reaching our shores on 31 October 2013, all three major local telcos as well as several Apple resellers here have already started their teasers and registration of interests but one big question remains, what will the retail price be? Only about 2 more weeks till we know for sure but it looks like Malaysian Wireless has got some insider information about the pricing as well as launch programs for the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S in Malaysia.
  • iPhone 5C 16GB – RM1,899
  • iPhone 5S 16GB – RM2,299
  • iPhone 5S 32GB – RM2,599
  • iPhone 5S 64GB – RM2,899
Looking at how the iPhone 5S is slightly more expensive in certain countries around the world compared to the iPhone 5 at launch, it make sense that it might be a little more expensive here too (the starting price of the iPhone 5 last year was RM2,199) but Malaysian Wireless noted that there could be about a RM100 difference between certain operators for the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5C’s pricing is pretty much confirmed.

Apple is Now the World’s Most Valuable Brand

A report by global brand consultants Interbrand has revealed that Apple has overtaken Coca-Cola to be the world’s most valuable brand. The yearly “Best Global Brands” report lists an exhaustive methodology in determining its valuation, including financial analysis, brand loyalty as well as brand influence.
Apple’s rise follows that of other technology companies in this year’s rankings: Google jumped two spots to rank second this year from fourth in 2012, Microsoft retained its fifth placing while Samsung continued its impressive run to place eighth this year after jumping eight spots last year to place ninth.
Of course, for every rise in rank, there are other companies slipping down the list. IBM and Intel both dropped one spot from last year’s rankings, while Nokia ranked 19th last year, dropped out of the top 50 into 57th, and BlackBerry – placed 93rd last year – dropped out of the top 100 entirely.

Huawei Honor 3

Huawei has unveiled the latest Honor branded smartphone. This one has arrived as the Honor 3 and it look like the initial roll-out will be for those in China.
The Honor 3 also has a bit of ruggedness going for it. This device is IP57 rated, meaning it is dust and water resistant. It also includes an extra sensitive touchscreen to recognize wet hands.
The Honor 3 is otherwise a modest upgrade, however; it carries a slightly larger 4.7-inch 720p in-cell touch LCD, a mildly faster Huawei’s 1.5GHz K3V2 quad-core chip, a higher-resolution 13-megapixel rear camera, a 1-megapixel front camera and Android 4.2.
The 2GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage haven’t changed since last year, although they’re acceptable when the Honor 3 is already on sale for just ¥1,888 ($309) in China.
