A couple of days ago, HTC sent a media teaser invite out for a launch event in London. As you can see in the picture above, there’s really not much detail about what’s going to be launched come September 15, apart from its going to be another smartphone (obviously).
But the invite did drop a clue as to how the smartphone would look like, and based on the many HTC prototypes and leaks that we’ve seen, it looks too much like the HTC Ace (aka Desire HD) that will be running Android.
Taking into consideration that Windows Phone 7 — the OS — launch is slated for sometime in October, we won’t be holding our breaths on a HTC Window Phone 7 powered device to make an appearance this early. But we’ll keep our eyes peeled on the latest developements. So keep it locked on to SoyaCincau.com for the latest in mobile news in Malaysia and all over the world!
Ok before all the P1 haters out there take out their pitchforks, we’re making it clear, we have no conclusive evidence but based on our own use of the service and from feedback we’ve been getting from other P1 users, the YouTube streaming has been choppy of late.
Everyone knows that with P1, when it’s good, its really good but when it’s crap, you can’t do jack online. But we can’t help but notice that we’re getting consistently slow streaming on YouTube when on the P1 network. It’s been happening almost all the time in the past couple of weeks.
We noticed that we had no problems whatsoever surfing almost every other sites and even downloading torrents is as smooth as butter. So is P1 throttling down YouTube streaming? It doesn’t make sense for them to, if they want to curb data hoggers and network abusers, then they should go straight for the throat and clamp down on torrent downloading.
But so far, it has been the other way around, we’ve been getting good download speeds but very bad streaming on YouTube. Anyone else going through the same thing? Comment us.
TweetDeck has finally made its appearance on the Android platform with its Beta release. We have a lot of expectations from this one considering TweetDeck themselves claim to built this from ground up which eventually be carried down to future iPhone/iPod versions. While this is only Beta, we should be seeing a near final development which should be good enough for prime time. After a day of playing around with it, we’re sad to report that it is far from good. This is benchmarked against Twitter’s own official app which is simple but yet sufficient for any twitter addict.

Google mobile has added a new feature to Google Voice Search for Android and they call it Voice Actions for Android.
Voice Actions are a series of spoken commands that let you control your phone using your voice. Call businesses and contacts, send texts and email, listen to music, browse the web, and complete common tasks, all just by speaking into your phone.
It sounds pretty awesome and the demo video looks convincing but we’ve yet to try this new feature to the fullest. If it works like Google says it does, yeah, its going to be a major convenience for those quick text reply while you’re driving (again with the driving).
For the other Froyo devices that are available here like the Nexus One, you’ll need the latest version of Voice Search and Google Search widget. For the Desire and Galaxy S owners out there, sorry, you’re out of luck at the moment.
Also, Voice Actions only currently recognises U.S. English speakers, and we don’t think some of the features are fully supported here just yet.
Check out the Voice Action demo video after the jump.
