The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be officially announced in Malaysia today but if you’re planning to get one, you might have to wait a little longer because the devices will only go on sale here from April 17, over a week after the official launch, according to information made available during a Samsung presentation in Singapore.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge may very well be the best devices Samsung has ever produced with the best display, best memory and best processor you can get in a smartphone at the moment, but the ultra-high end specification, top-notch design and quality build materials is going to cost you.

Right on cue, DiGi has started taking pre-orders for the Sony Xperia S. There’s nothing out of the ordinary with regards to the plans on offer. You get the standard selection of three DiGi Smart Plans and two contract period with the device going for as low as RM1,149. Subscribers will start receiving their pre-ordered Xperia S on Friday, March 16 which also is a clear indication that the device will be available in stores by then.
You’ll have a choice of 3 plans with 12 and 24 months duration. Bundled pricing of Xperia S on each option as follows:
DG Smart Plan 48 (12 months) – RM1,699
DG Smart Plan 48 (24 months) – RM1,499
DG Smart Plan 68 (12 months) – RM1,449
DG Smart Plan 68 (24 months) – RM1,299
DG Smart Plan 88 (12 months) – RM1,449
DG Smart Plan 88 (24 months) – RM1,149
Speaking of the device, DiGi’s pre-order has also revealed the recommended retail pricing for the Sony Xperia S. The device sells for RM1,899, which is pretty good value considering the Xperia S is one of the latest dual-core Android devices in the market with NFC support and a decent 12MP Exmor R-equipped camera. Disappointingly there’s no mention of Sony’s NFC SmartTags included with the device. We’re still hoping that Sony will offer the accessory for outright purchases from its stores.
The Xperia S was just only unveiled on January 10 and in just two months the device is already on sales here. Kudos to Sony for making this happen, we’re pretty sure that’s a lot of Sony fans out there are happy for this.

Before you start asking, “where do I camp out?”, the pre-orders for the new iPhone is happening in Germany.
A report coming from Bloomberg revealed that Germany’s Deutsche Telekom has already opened pre-orders for the new iPhone right now. This is highly irregular considering the fact that no confirmed information, including its launch date and event official name of the device has been announced by Apple.
If anything, this is a very clear indication that the launch of the next generation iPhone is very close (and by close we mean within these two months).
In addition, trusted tech blog, BGR, says invitations to a special media event at which Apple will unveil the new phones are expected to be issued within this week.
We’re not expecting to get one anytime soon.
Anyway…if you’re wondering, iPhones from Germany are not SIM-locked and can be purchased outright (i.e. without a term contract), so if you have a friend in Germany, you might be in luck.
Just as mentioned earlier, the T-Mobile G2 runs on a 800MHz processor, Android 2.2 Froyo, 4GB on board storage and supports HSPA+, making it the first Android smartphone to offer “4G-like speeds” on a 3G network. Pre-orders starts on 10th September by BestBuy and it expects to hit all stores by 6th October. It goes for $199 over a 2 year contract.

Just a day after pre-ordering is made available, the Apple iPhone 4 had been insanely sought after with more than 600,00 pre-orders placed. The demand is so crazy that users faced difficulty pre-booking it online like its AirAsia’s “Zero Fare” fever. As comparison, the hot selling iPad took 28 days to reach 1 million units. This could set a new record for the hottest Apple product yet.
According to AT&T, the pre-orders are ten times compared to the iPhone 3GS launched a year ago. With such demand, Apple might need to look into increasing supplies before it hampers other international releases.
Due to the fact that many potential customers had problems pre ordering their units, Apple issued the following statement:
Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
