We got a few requests for a Nokia N9 unboxing video, and so here it is.
Bonus video after the break featuring our first impressions on the Nokia N9. The video was shot a while back, just finally had the time post it up now. Hope you like it.
In any case, the Nokia N9 is a really special device from Nokia, MeeGo looks very polished and if you can look beyond the limitations that iOS and Android users take for granted, this platform has a future. In fact we want Nokia to give it a future, it is that good.
On the N9, MeeGo has so much potential that we’re not sure if Nokia even needs Windows Phone to stay relevant in the smartphone market.
Our southern neighbour Singapore has commenced its pre-order for the iPhone 4S. Below we have the pricing with RM equivalent with exchange rate of ($1 = RM2.47):
16GB – $948 (RM2,341)
32GB – $1,088 (RM2,687)
64GB – $1,238 (RM3,057)
Each customers can buy up to 2 units and shipping duration is listed as 1-2 weeks. There’s also a 12 months interest-free installment plan with Citibank for easy payment. This gives a rough idea of the iPhone 4S pricing if it reaches Malaysia. If the trend is similar to the iPad 2, we can expect ours to be cheaper than the Singaporeans in terms of listed price.
For more information, head over to Singapore Apple Store.
The HTC Wildfire S which previously retails at RM1,099 is now priced at RM899, which is a RM200 reduction. Meanwhile, the 2 Facebook oriented devices, HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa are sold at RM799 and RM999 respectively. When announced, the ChaCha was going for RM1,099 and the Salsa at RM1,499.
Overall, the reduction of price is welcomed as there are plenty of decent 1GHz Android devices hitting below the RM1,500 mark such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, LG Optimus Black and Samsung Galaxy S Plus.
When it comes to entry level Android devices, HTC isn’t really known for offering devices below the RM1000 mark. With this new revision, hopefully they will make waves with the entry level users. In the coming months, we are expecting more decent Android devices with lower pricing to enter the market which may make it tough for HTC in this segment. The next lowest entry device from HTC would be the HTC Explorer which is slated for Q4 this year.
