U Mobile is taking on the bigger 3G boys by offering the first ever commercial HSPA+ coverage in Malaysia. This HSPA+ coverage boast a blazing 42Mbps but it is contained only within Berjaya Times Square.
According to its latest CEO Dr Kaizad Heerjee, users will be able to enjoy better mobile broadband with its upcoming USB devices that support HSPA+ soon. So far Berjaya Times Square is the only location and they are expected to roll out to more places in the Klang Valley in the coming weeks.
HSPA+ is the next revolution of HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) which some say is 4G speeds with enhanced 3G technology. We have yet to see any HSPA+ device in the market but looks like U Mobile will be bundling them soon.

There’s iPad cases and then there’s this iPad case.
This ladies and gents, could possibly be the best ipad case we’ve ever seen. A genuine licensed product made in conjunction of the 50th anniversary of Etch A Sketch, the Etch A Sketch case is made of impact resistant plastic, with rubber feet and a felt backing that’s design to protect your iPad while making it look as cool as ever!
The Etch A Sketch case also has all the necessary ports and windows allowing you to use your iPad just as you would without the cool casing. There’s also retractable kick stands to allow you to either lay your iPad flat, or angle it for easy use of the iPad keyboard.
The Etch A Sketch iPad case retails for US$39 or RM120, very reasonable if you’ve seen the many overpriced iPad cases that’s being sold here in Malaysia. Problem is we’re not sure if the sellers ship the cool casing here.
We don’t know about you but Sony Ericsson’s Android offering have been disappointing to say the least. A flagship offering that’s running an archaic version of Android (1.6 versus the current 2.1 and 2.2 running on various other devices) is not going to get hearts racing.
To be fair, when we first got wind of that Sony Ericsson’s Xperia line of smartphones will be running Android, we were very excited and was looking forward to what the once leading manufacturer can do with the open source platform. Turns out, nothing much. Yes, the Xperia experience has been disappointing in our opinion
Anyways, Sony Ericsson has put out a series of videos to showcase some of the features of the Xperia X10. Take a look for yourself, it’s funny and interesting to watch but seriously, we can’t say the same about the device itself *sigh*.
Full series of the funny Xperia X10 videos after the jump.
