Apple has just issued a press statement to announce the iPad 2 making its debut in 25 additional countries this Friday March 25. That’s nothing new. We knew this at the iPad 2 keynote early this month.
What is a big deal is that in the same press statement Apple has announced that all versions of the iPad 2 will be available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April
We can’t confirm anything right now but we have a bloody strong feeling that “additional countries” mean one of them is Malaysia.
Any Apple junkie in Malaysia will recall that the original iPad was launched in Singapore on July 23 2010, three months after it was officially announced in the US and a good four months ahead of the original iPad’s Malaysian launch in November 2010.
We feel that it is very safe to assume that the Malaysian launch lead time for the iPad 2 will be much less that the original iPad. So are we looking at an April launch date for the iPad 2 in Malaysia? It’s possible. If not May or early June the latest.
In terms of pricing, the Australian iPad 2 prices have been revealed as follows:
The above prices are inclusive of 10% GST which can be refunded when taken out from the country within a certain period of time.
Head on over to after the jump for Apple’s official press release.
Ahead of the big event, the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has been leaked and it appears to be thinner than the iPad 2 at only 8.6mm! The iPad 2 thickness is 8.8mm while the original 7″ Galaxy Tab is at 11.98mm.
Weight wise, it is at 470 grams making it 90 grams more than the 7″ version and the screen supports a higher resolution of 1280×800. Processor wise, it is powered by a dual-core 1GHz CPU.

A while back, one of the earliest Android tablets to hit the market comes from Samsung in the form of the Galaxy Tab which was launched in Malaysia together with Maxis. Earlier on, we had a brief hands-on experience with the Galaxy Tab at the launch roadshow but recently Samsung had given us the opportunity to test the device out more extensively.
After having the device for an extended period, we are able to share with you our findings on how is it like living with a Galaxy Tab on a day-to-day basis.
We put it out in the open that the recently launched Nexus S is probably one of the most overpriced smart phones in the local market today (this is of course not considering absurdities like the Vertu et all). We find this rather odd considering a similarly speced HTC Incredible S that was launched on the same day is close to RM500 cheaper than the Google phone.
Is the premium on the Nexus S warranted? Some seem to think so. The supporters claim that the Nexus S delivers a pure, unadulterated Google experience and that being the only device currently available that’s running the latest version of the Android OS — Android 2.3 Gingerbread — the additional cost is warranted.
But is it? Is the Nexus S a better phone compared to its closest competitor the HTC Incredible S for it to command such a high price? Spec for spec how would both of this top shelf Android devices compare with the iPhone 4?
We’ve compiled all important specs for you to compare you can make the right choice. Head on over to after the jump to get all the details.
