Much more reasonable than the Nexus S

Simone

I just call customer service at Digi to ask about details, but they don't know at all. It is possible I have to check in at Sunway Giza?

    soyacincau

    Best you head over to Cubic Platforms — the HTC concept store at Sunway Giza — to try out the device and find out more about the DiGi plans.

    You can also give them a call a+603 61504030

I think Galaxy i9003 is more "reasonable" then this one. same Super LCD, 4".
cheaper by ~ RM600 !

    Anon

    Where did you find an unsubsidized i9003 for RM1399? Even with subsidies, Celcom is selling it at RM1198 at the very least…

Albert

Don't compare this with the Pure Google with gingerbread , different class thou. But this is good only with the 8MP camera.

    soyacincau

    Why are they different class? Both are flagship Android devices with 1Ghz processor. Both have SLCD and dual-camera. If anything both phones are in direct competition with one another.

      goh

      well, at least Nexus S got NFC and curved screen.

        Hadi

        Curve screen is a gimmick. It is already exposed that the screen is actually flat. Only the surface is curve

      Anon

      His one is bought overseas with S-AMOLED and a far more reasonable price?
