Maxis now allows you to make calls, send SMS and go online on AirAsia flights. All this is made possible via OnAir in-flight communication solutions.
The call rates are charged at RM11/minute while SMS are charged at RM2 each. If you need data, it is available at RM25/MB. Quite a premium price to pay but it can come handy for people that crucially need to stay connected.
There’s no mention whether receiving SMS or calls are charged and whether this is applicable on all AirAsia flights at this point. For more info, visit Maxis’s roaming page here. This isn’t the first as both Maxis & DiGi had similar in-flight service on selected Malaysia Airlines flights.
As part of their promotion, lucky users may get a complimentary free drink. You’ll get an sms if you are selected.

Words out all over the net that the next iteration of the Android OS will be called Honeycomb.
As with all these news that are ahead of their time, no details are forthcoming as to what Android Honeycomb will entail and frankly speaking at this moment in time, we don’t really care.
All we want to know right now is when will Frozen Yogurt updates become available for many Eclair devices out there.
We talked about the possibility of the HTC Ace (aka HTC Desire HD) making its debut on September 15 and we’ve presented compelling evidence that suggested that. But this new piece of news about September 15 has taken us by surprise.
There’s not one but two HTC devices that will be revealed on September 15.
One is the much known HTC Ace the other is the lesser known HTC Vision (aka HTC Desire Z). Online store, mobile.co.uk has begun displaying the new HTCs possibly to get a head start from the the other online retailers but details of the Desire Z and HD are almost non-existent.
Buy anyways, here’s a recap of what we think the the Desire HD will be packing: 4.3in WVGA screen (most probably of the SLCD kind), Froyo (Android 2.2), 8MP camera with 720p video recording, 1GHZ Snapdragon processor and 4GB on board memory. We also think HTC will be including a dual-mic with noise cancellation in Ace’s arsenal based on the video that we’ve seen of the device. A secondary camera for video calling however is very unlikely for the HTC Ace.
As for the Desire Z its looking like a 3.7-inch screen (480×800) Android 2.1 (Eclair) powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and here’s our favourite part, the Z will also have a kick-out QWERTY keyboard, something like the one we’ve seen on the HTC TyTn II. An Android HTC with QWERTY keyboard, sounds very simillar to the upcoming T-Mobile G2 sans the HSPA+ ?.
And we think a device with a HTC Desire body and a full QWERTY keyboard is something we would classify as being just about perfect.
And no Windows Phone 7 fans, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing a Windows phone anytime soon.
