Acer today launched their new line of Liquid Z smartphones, which starts at the entry level Z330, to the mid-range Z530 and topping it off is the Z630. These three devices were announced during IFA in September and today they have finally arrived on our shores.

It takes a lot to remove a word from your smartphone model’s identity; evolving the Sony Xperia M series meant dropping the “Aqua” name on the Xperia M5 Dual. It’s going to take a lot more than product placement in a Bond film to revive the Japanese giant, or at least their mobile division, if they want to continue the Xperia brand.

OPPO Malaysia has been a vanguard against the production of counterfeit mobile devices, publicly declaring that the production of fake OPPO smartphones was rampant as well as issuing official certificates to their authorised retailers.
Spending all your hard earned money on a fake device has to be one of the most heartbreaking things ever, so OPPO Malaysia teamed up with the Ministry of Domestic Trade Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) to crack down on these counterfeit bandits.
The mobile industry is a booming one, with more and more industry players want to get a slice of it, be it manufacturers or telco providers. Set to be the latest horse to enter the race, TM is setting its sights on a 2016 entry into the mobile telco industry in Malaysia. This will complicate things, to say the least, for the existing four players – Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U Mobile.
Awhile back, OnePlus came under fire from critics and the tech community in general when it was discovered that their USB Type-C cables were not spec compliant. This could possibly lead to damage if used with any device other than the OnePlus 2. Leading the charge was Google employee Benson Leung who had embarked on a crusade to purge the world of non-compliant USB Type-C cables.
His method involved ordering cables off Amazon then testing them to see if they met the USB standards. When he arrived at the OnePlus cable, he found that even a cable manufactured by a proper smartphone manufacturer did not meet proper USB Type-C standards. Needless to say, the Caped Cable Crusader rained sweet justice down on the Chinese manufacturer, bringing them to their knees (metaphorically speaking, of course).
Yesterday, OnePlus finally caved and admitted that their cables were indeed non-compliant, but it seems the USB Vigilante still isn’t entirely satisfied.
The rainy season is in full effect now with many parts of the country experiencing constant downpour each day. And with the tide phenomenon that is expected to occur in the Straits of Tebrau from the 24th to 30th of November is likely to mean more trouble for affected locals.
Malaysia has had its fair share of flood woes in the past and since it’s the rainy season again, the folks at Communications and Multimedia Consumer Forum of Malaysia (CFM) have decided to take a more proactive role to ensure effective communication during these potentially trying times remains strong.
As if it isn’t obvious enough, land transport authority, SPAD is running an online survey to gauge public perception of our local taxi industry. The survey aims to formulate a solution based on your feedback, to improve the overall service levels.
When we announced that Google Maps‘ offline navigation had finally rolled out in Malaysia, many rejoiced, but apparently not everyone is happy with being able to rely on navigation applications just a little more. UMNO lawmaker Datuk Raime Unggi said in Parliament today that Malaysian dependency on navigation apps to find their way around the maze-like labyrinth of Kuala Lumpur’s bustling city centre, was possibly exposing our country to “external threats” from foreign countries.
There’s no denying it, HTC is in trouble. 2015 sales figures are less than stellar as their monthly revenue has been on a steady decline since April. Many owe this bad performance to the OEM’s disappointing 2015 flagship the One M9 and how HTC didn’t go back to the drawing board when developing it. Perhaps it was because they were stubborn, or perhaps it was because of a lack of communication between the company and their customers that put them in this predicament.
Well, HTC must’ve figured it was the latter because the smartphone manufacturer just announced that they are opening up the HTC Preview Program to all in the hope that it would help them better understand what exactly their customers want.
When the idea of a smartwatch started gaining traction, many suspected that the watchmaking industry would eventually try to take it over. It seemed like a logical thing to do to keep up with the times.
Fossil thought so too and while initial models of their Q line hardly looked high-tech, their latest smartwatch, the Q Founder, does.
