Update: Yes announced that its network is stabilised and “fully restored”. Based on our usage experience, it’s so far so good. Are you a Yes user? How’s your connectivity this morning?
If you’re a Yes customer and facing connectivity issues, you’re not alone. From our experience and complaints of others, Yes seems to be having some network problems since yesterday evening as far as we can tell. While we were able to connect to the Yes 4G network, we were not able to access any sites other than the yes.my portal.
Though the issue seems to be intermittent, we have to say that it is extremely frustrating to not be able to access sites when you want to get things done quickly.
On our last check, we’re still experiencing intermittent connectivity on Yes.
Yes has made an announcement that rectification works is on the way. According to them the issue was caused by one of their “key network service providers”. There’s no timeline given but we hope they can stabilise the network as soon as possible. The Yes network has been solid so far and while network issues are part and parcel of the internet game we hope that Yes makes sure that these disruptions are very few and far, far in between.

The upcoming hybrid Tablet from ASUS has been finally revealed by PocketNow ahead of its event at Computex 2011. The tablet currently dubbed as ASUS PadFone, was earlier teased as a new Android tablet that defies convention with its Tablet + Phone functionality.
What it actually offers is a smart phone which docks internally inside the tablet. The smart phone itself looks like any candy bar Android device with a full capacitive display. Docking it inside the tablet makes the whole combination look clean, and it should transfer your communication features to the tablet seamlessly.
From the pic, we noticed the tablet’s imaging is using the smart phone’s camera since the docking placement is at the top. The front design at first glance looks similar to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer .
The details of both hardware is not clear yet but we can expect some possibilities such as smart phone charging while in doc and some data sync between the two. We are also curious to know if both can be used separately such as talking on the smart phone while doing some work on the tablet. This PadFone is definitely a new category of tablet and official details should be out soon.
Head after the break for more pics.
