Honeycomb is now available for HTC Flyers in Malaysia. As always the update servers are staggering the release to the manage the load so if you’re not getting a notification to update your Flyer don’t be concerned. Give it a couple of weeks and the update should be coming your way. Remember to also check the “Software Updates” status in the settings menu. If you’re lucky, you might be able to grab the update manually.
To access the “Software Updates” section. Go to, “Settings” > “About Tablet” > “Software Updates”.
The update file is 210MB, so using a WiFi connection would the smart thing to do if you’re updating your Flyer.
Truth be told, we haven’t gotten the update notification for our Flyer yet. If you have already updated yours let us know if you noticed any cool or interesting features worth mentioning. Thanks!
Also, thanks to @azharbinismail for the headsup and also the screen grab you see above.
Funny or tasteless? Your thoughts? Another example for discussion after the jump.
With its QNX-based BB10 devices scheduled for release only in the second half of this year, RIM has a lot of advertising to do to drive interest to its existing product line. Canadian company is doing just that.
Take a look at RIM’s latest series of advertising highlighting the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and what some would consider the platform’s best assets, but would expressions like “I’m about action, not distraction” and “we need tools, not toys” sway you to the Bold side?
Take a look at the ads past the jump and let us know what you think. Oh, and if you’re wondering, the silly superheroes are omitted in the ads, thankfully.
As for us, we’re not thoroughly convinced. The ads come across as trying too hard and honestly, the faster RIM gets their BB10 devices into the market, the better. We so want to believe, RIM. Make us believe.
After the jump are a few sample shots comparing the camera performance of the Xperia S and the Xperia arc S. The 12MP Xperia S has to, at the very least, match what the 8MP Xperia arc S can muster but in this comparison, it looks like the Xperia arc S is taking the better pictures.
Having said that, just two samples from each camera are not enough for us to draw a conclusion (though the low light performance on the Xperia S looks better here) and once again, it’s very possible that the Xperia S used here is a pre-production unit. Await the final production version of the Xperia S we shall.
