HTC is doing a promo at PC Fair which is happening at Melaka International Trade Centre starting tomorrow, 3 – 5 June 2011. Among the devices on promotion are the latest models such as HTC Sensation, HTC Flyer and the recently announced HTC Wildfire S.
Although the prices for the latest models remained as per RRP, HTC is throwing a couple of extras. For the Flyer, they are giving out free screen protector, 16GB microSD memory card and a 4800mAh Battery bank. The HTC Incredible comes with a 4800mAh Battery bank while the Wildfire S is bundled with car kit. Other models are bundled with free gifts too so view the full size image above for the details.
Surprisingly the original HTC Wildfire is only RM100 cheaper than the latest model but they have thrown a 16GB microSD, screen protector and casing to make it more appealing.

Get ready for massive around KL over the weekend, PC Fair is back! And as always you can expect some deals and promos from the many device manufacture and distributors in Malaysia.
HTC is no different putting out revised pricing for its range of devices and throwing in a free spa voucher worth RM1,390 as well as a 1+1 year warranty for all devices.
In all honesty, the revised prices are not that great considering the vintage of these device and that LG Optimus 2X is just RM1,899 outright and our current Android favourite, the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc with its Exmor R 8.1MP camera and Bravia Engine 4.0 Reality Display is the same price as the Desire HD outright, but if you’ve always been a fan of these HTC devices that are on offer, PC Fair weekend would be a good time to hunt for a great bargain.
Browsing full websites on mobile devices can be a pain and that’s where Opera reigns supreme as a mobile web browser. Available across multiple platforms including entry level java supported devices, Opera does a nifty job in rendering full websites for small screen and compressing them small enough for speedy and cheaper usage.
This week they have released new versions of the browsers, Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mobile 11 that comes with several new features. The first noticeable difference is opening new tabs is done in the background without interrupting the page you’re viewing. Of course, this is subject to one’s preferences.
Scrolling through pages is noticably smoother than the previous version. Another neat trick is if you wanted to scroll all the way to the top or the bottom, just make a big swipe towards the direction you want and hit the big arrow button when it appears. The new release also comes with a prominent Share button which in the Android version shares the URL across your sharable apps like Facebook, Twitter, Email, SMS and etc.
For those who still doesn’t know the difference between Mini and Mobile, Opera Mini is a compact browser which renders web pages on Opera’s compression servers before loading up on your phone. This is perfect for prepaid users that are cost conscious as web pages are compressed small enough for small screen viewing. Opera Mobile however is a full fledged browser which renders on your device, but if you need compression it is also readily available by enabling Opera Turbo under settings.
If you’re a DiGi customer, they are doing a special promo for Opera Mini where downloads at m.opera.com is free of charge. You’ll also stand a chance to grab 1MB free Data for prepaid customers and win a HTC Mozart for sharing. More details on the DiGi Opera Mini offer here.
Check out the demo video after the break.
