It looks kinda freaky but we’re still pretty stoked about this TVC and can’t wait for it to air.
Funny thing is, DiGi says that the TVC will premier on their official Facebook page and YouTube channel on 13 April. We’ve got our eyes glued on both and see nothing other than the 15 second making of video.
What gives DiGi?
Check out the video after the jump.
He said “No. It’ll still be near the end of April, like we said“. We reitarate, he said that.
Today Apple issues a media advisory saying that the international shipments of iPads will be delayed by a month.
“Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks“, the advisory read.
Apparently the call to delay the global release of the iPad was a “difficult decision” for Apple to make.
So for all you iPad hopefuls out there, we’ll all have to hold out unitl the end of May.
Apple will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10. So be sure to mark your calendars.
P1‘s parent company, Greenpacket, unveiled its new range of budget WiMAX Indoor VoIP EX-series modems at the WiMAX Forum Congress Asia in Taipei.
The EX can be used in 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5Ghz WiMAX networks and has everything that will make any budget WiMAX modem proud including a high gain omni directional antenna and VOIP support. There’s no built-in WiFI though but that is the least of our worries.
What we’re concerned about is the look of the device. Just look at it. Nothing says fugly more than a overly boxy design with sharp edges and duldrum colours.
4G connectivity, never looked so bad.
No word on wherether P1 will be offering this to the Malaysian market.
With over 500 deployments around the world including the four in Malaysia, WiMAX is just starting to get a foot hold in the wireless world.
But that’s not stopping Intel, Samsung, Motorola, ZTE and friends from announcing the next version of the technology dubbed WiMAX 2.
These manufacturers along with almost everyone who’s supporting the WiMAX movement have committed to WiMAX 2 as well as to developing interoperable devices for the technology.
WiMAX 2 based on the 802.11m technology, according to the companies, will provide 300Mbits of throughput, with less latency and more bandwidth available for applications like VOIP calls. The technology is developed to address the astronomic rate in which bandwidth and data are being consumed at the moment.
“The wireless industry is convinced that the growing volume of data consumers are eating up is a bad thing,” said Mike Sievert, Chief Commercial Officer, Clearwire. “But for us, our spectrum position gives us tremendous capacity and the ability to meet the explosive demand for mobile broadband. Today our CLEAR mobile customers are using an average of more than 7GB of data per month on our network. And while other companies are considering how to curtail usage, we simply say to our customers, here’s the Internet: the world in the palm of your hand – enjoy it.”
The gang targets to have first commercial WiMAAX 2 products in the market by mid-2011.

DiGi gave us a behind the scene look at what their marcomms team is currently working on.
It looks like a new TV commercial and if the pictures are anything to go by, we are definitely looking forward to this new commercial. The thing that’s getting us all excited about this new commercial is there are various references to competitors – that’s going to be fun to watch.
If DiGi maintains the production standard of previous commercial DiGi Prepaid – So Easy commercial, it is a commercial that we’d want to watch.
Hop on over to DiGi’s facebook page to view the new commercial shoot picture gallery. Also, take a look at the So Easy commercial after the jump.
You gotta love China. The land of melamin-tainted milk, fake eggs and this little wonderful iPhone accessory – the desk phone dock.
At first glance, you’ll be able to identify right away what it does – dock your iPhone and transform it into a desk phone, perfect for use in any modern office or home. But the desk phone dock does more than that – in has built-in speakers and a microphone so that you can play music from your iPhone or talk on speakerphone. In addition to that, you can transfer data and sync your iPhone with your computer and charge your iPhone too.
Unlike most iPhone docks, this one takes in your iPhone with or without a casing and we think it looks good.
This is definitely going onto our gadget wish list, only thing that’s stoping it from becoming perfect? Colour options. Price? US$150 or more. Pretty hefty but could very well be worth it!
After the jump, video of the desk phone dock in action and a rip-off of the I’m a Mac commercial. Go on, take a look.
Here’s a look at the Nexus One dock.
It may not look like much but from the video, a docked Nexus One appears to have much more functionality compared to a docked iPhone.
We kind of wished the iPhone has some of the docked features of the Nexus One actually.
Oh well…Video after the jump.
The telco game is a money game. For you to be taken seriously in this industry, you need money and loads of it, bucket loads.
P1, was the first to market WiMAX in Malaysia but it appears that they’ve grown to big and too fast for their own good. And when that happens, you need money.
Word has it that P1 is currently looking for strategic investors to allow the telco to further expand both its WiMAX network coverage and subscriber base.
Business Times report that P1 has approached Korea’s largest telco, SK Telecom for the said injection of funds.
Both declined to comment on the report but it is said that a one fifth stake in P1 is worth about US$100m of investor’s money.
With Wizard, Michael Lai at the helm, P1 showed tremendous promise early last year with good performance and solid packages. One year into the business, it is now plagued by frequent network outages and what could possibly be one of the country’s most unreliable networks, P1 could very well put the funds to good use, if the investment does happen.
Many would like to see major improvements in network reliability and performance as well as an increase in coverage areas especially in buildings.
For 2010, P1 targets to double its subscriber base and coverage areas. As of December 2009, P1 has crossed the 140,000 subscriber mark with coverage across 35% of Peninsular Malaysia.
