The HTC One X is officially available today with contract offers from DiGi, Celcom, Maxis & U Mobile. We brought all 4 telco plans side by side and compared the total cost of ownership for easy reference.
For DiGi, their DG Smart Plans bundles only data which means that all calls and SMS made are charged separately. For comparison sake, we looked only at the minimal cost which is based on assumption of data usage only without any calls/SMS made. On Maxis, the bundled plans are based on bolt-on data plans on top of postpaid plans. For this comparison, we based on our calculation on Maxis’s Value First postpaid plan of RM30/month for voice and SMS.
For Celcom, all 3 plans come with bundled talk time, SMS and data while for U Mobile, it varies depending on plan. U Mobile’s U28 comes with free SMS while U58 comes with bundled voice calls. It’s highest U88 plan comes with both voice calls and SMS.

Google is pushing the boundaries with its introduction of Gmail Tap, the newest and fastest way to type. Instead of focusing on the best way of cramming 26 alphabetical keys onto the mobile screen, Google is focusing on just 2. All the texting/emailing you need is now represented by a “dot” and a “dash” in Morse fashion.
With large button areas, you can Gmail Tap easily without looking at the screen. Even at meetings, you can tap on your lap while staying focus with your audience. To double up productivity, there’s even multi-email mode where you can type 2 separate emails simultaneously with 2 sets of Gmail tap keyboards.
Other software keyboard developers like SwiftKey isn’t letting Google have all the fun. They too have introduced SwiftKey Mono, that features the world’s longest space bar. For those who have used SwiftKey would appreciate its rather accurate predictive input based on historical data. With this new version, all you get is a big keyboard without the clutter of a standard keyboard. Since it’s incredibly accurate, you won’t need to type anymore! All you need is just a big spacebar and follow the choices that SwiftKey predicts. For more information on SwiftKey Mono, head over here.
Don’t forget to check out other Google “innovation” that was released recently after the break.
