Update: It looks like we missed a very important clue in the invite. The HTC Desire S will be joining in the fun as well this Friday. So we are actually looking at two more new devices from Maxis! Hats off to the product people at Maxis.
Just to refresh your memory, the HTC Desire S is an evolution of what was one of the best Android smart phones in its time — the HTC Desire. The Desire S features a unibody chassis that is slightly thinner (0.27mm) than the original Desire. Specs-wise, the Desire S runs Qualcomm’s latest single-core 1Ghz Snapdragon MSM8255 that is in the Incredible S, Sony Ericsson Xperia arc and Xperia Play.
The significant difference is that the Desire S comes with 768MB of RAM and 1.1GB of on board storage. Also, it’s very likely that the Desire S that will be launched this Friday will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. If this is indeed that case, this makes the Desire S the third device in the local market to run Google’s latest mobile OS.
Other than that, you get 3.7-inch 480×800 pixel Super LCD screen, a 5MP camera with a single LED flash and 720p video recording, there’s also a VGA front camera, dual-mic for active noise-cancellation and a 1450mAh battery to power it all up.

One of the most promising and yet vastly underrated tablets to come out this year is coming to Malaysia and it’s happening this Friday!
We got to hand it to Maxis for being really proactive in bringing all this new and exciting devices to Malaysia. In the span of less than two months we’ve seen the Nexus S, the awesome Xperia arc and now the HTC Flyer tablet make their debuts with Maxis. All this action is certainly is keeping a lot of geeks and device junkies out there very, very happy.

If you’re eyeing for the HTC Desire S, it is coming real soon as Maxis has commenced its Registration of Interest. Last week, this was hinted when Maxis was calling for reviewers for the device on its Maxis10 program.
HTC’s upcoming 7″ tablet, the HTC Flyer seems to be coming to Malaysia very soon. Maxis via its Maxis 10 programme has announced on twitter that they are accepting new applicants to review the HTC tablet.
The HTC Flyer runs on a single core 1.5GHz processor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with a 7″ screen supporting 1024×600. It comes with 4000mAh battery and weights 420 grams. You can check out more details of the specs here.
