Update: Unofficial Celcom iPhone 4 plans here
CELCOM TO LAUNCH iPHONE 4
KUALA LUMPUR, 22 MARCH 2011 – Celcom will launch iPhone 4 in Malaysia in the coming months. iPhone 4 is the most innovative phone in the world, featuring Apple’s stunning Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone and FaceTime, which makes video calling a reality. For more information on iPhone 4 please visit www.apple.com/iphone.
While the rest of the world is getting ready for the iPhone 5 to make its debut very likely in June, we have to question Celcom’s judgement and foresight making this announcement.
Unless they have a really good deal up their sleeves, there’s really not much of an appeal for prospective iPhone buyers to head to Celcom for an iPhone 4.
Most, if not all, who want to get an iPhone 4 would probably have gotten it already and we’re pretty sure that those who are saving up for an iPhone would probably wait for the iPhone 5 to come.
So barring a ridiculously good offer from the telco, would you get an iPhone 4 on contract from Celcom?
UPDATE: FAQ for the BlackBerry Buy 1 Free 1 offer available here. Both devices must be signed up 24 months contract with RM468 up front payment each.
U Mobile has recently renovated its Flagship store at Berjaya Times Square. In conjunction with the opening, they are doing a couple of promotions particularly a Buy 1 Free 1 offer from 1PM to 7PM today, 23rd March 2011 with Nokia E5, HTC Wildfire and Nokia 7230 shown. It is not clear how it works but most likely it is tied with a contract postpaid plan.
That’s not all, for the next 30 days they are also doing a lucky draw, BlackBerry Buy 1 Free 1 offers and Free U Broadband modem bundling.

Microsoft has just released its NoDo update for Windows Phone which includes a much missed and very essential feature for the platform — copy & paste.
Along with copy & paste the NoDo update brings faster app load times and a improved Windows Phone Marketplace that produces better search results and better stability during longer app downloads. In addition to that Outlook users can now better see photo attachments sent from an iPhone on a non-Exchange account. Other fixes give the phone’s MAC address for Wi-Fi security and fix stability or syncing issues with audio, the camera, Facebook, and text messaging.
Microsoft will roll-out NoDo in phases and if you don’t already see a notification on your Windows Phone that an update is available, it should appear in the coming weeks or so.
You might have known that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 which is also known as the Samsung Galaxy Tab II was revealed at MWC just a while ago. After the announced of the iPad 2 that underwent a strict diet, Samsung had brought the 10.1 back to the drawing board. As a result, they have redesigned the tablet which now weighs 595 grams and with reduced thickness of just 8.6mm, which is 0.2mm thinner than the iPad 2. As comparison, the earlier 10.1 was 599 grams and 10.9mm thick.
In terms of hardware specs, it features a 1280×800 XGA display, dual core 1GHz processor, stereo surround speakers and 6800mAh battery which provides up to 10 hours of usage. As expected, it runs on Android 3.0 Honeycomb but with Samsung’s customised TouchWiz 4.0 skin.
In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have support for 4G in a form of HSPA+ and they will be coming out LTE and WiMAX versions later. For enhanced reception, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes with dual antennas.
Sony Ericsson has just released a new series of TV commercials for the Xperia Play gaming smart phone, and although these new spots don’t feature a freaky hovering Android with human thumbs, they are no less offensive while struggling to be mildly entertaining.
Head on over to after the jump to catch the full series.
