Aside from stating the obvious, the TechCentral geeks really didn’t say anything much about the Streak. They fail to highlight that there’s a dual LED flash next to the camera, that the back plate is made out of metal.
Upon opening the back plate the unboxer didn’t say what capacity battery the Streak comes with. The unboxer didn’t say how much on board memory the device has and whether it comes bundled with a memory card. Simply put, there’s so much you can say in an unboxing the this video has fail to highlight.
The unboxer will probably say that those details will be saved for the review, but everyone knows a good unboxing video should include these perliminary details.
And no guys, running a key up and down the screen without any or very little pressure doesn’t account for a scratch test ok.
Dell, come one, give us a unit, we can do better.

Motorola has announced its Android upgrade timeline for its devices and it looks like Milestone owners in Malaysia will have to wait indefinitely for a Froyo upgrade as Motorola as officially stated that Foroy upgrade for Milestones sold in APAC is still under evaluation.
You can into that all you want but we think Froyo ain’t going to come to Milestone owners here.
Head on after the jump to see what Motorola devices will get which Android OS and when.
UPDATE: Celcom officially offers the BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300) for both postpaid and prepaid in Malaysia from RM688. Read more on the Celcom Blackberry Curve 3G offers here.
Very perplexing is why is there nary a mention on its official website — www.celcom.com.my. Even more confusing is that the announcement on Facebook says that something is limited to 200 units.
We’re not sure if its the device that’s limited to 200 units or the freebie that comes with the device (if you pre-book whit Celcom, you get a free in-car charger).
If the device is limited to only 200 customers then that just silly on Celcom’s part. Wouldn’t it make more sense to offer as many pre-book units as possible. If they sellout, then that makes for an interesting story to send to the press, eg: “Celcom sells out BlackBerry Curve 3G in first week”.
Anyways, there’s not much info on the Facebook announcement except that you have to fork out RM50 to book a Curve 3G. Pre-booking of the BlackBerry Curve 3G runs from August 20 to 31 and collection day will be on September 3. There’s no indication on if you need to have a Celcom plan to get the Curve and no indication on how much it will cost.
But assuming Celcom stops offering the non-3G Curve than you’re probably looking at roughly the same price. That is around RM1,200 outright and RM500 thereabouts if tied with a contract.
If the non-3G Curve is still on offer then the Curve 3G will probably go for no more than RM1,500 outright and around RM800 with a contract.
We think the Curve is a cheap and cheerful device that does what it says on the box. If you are a IM, text and Twitter junkie, the Curve 3G with its pricing and robust construction is a nice phone to have. It makes for a good secondary phone too. Pre-bookings for the Curve 3G can be made at any Celcom Blue Cube outlets.

UPDATE: Maxis officially reveals BlackBerry Curve 3G plans for postpaid and prepaid.
This comes pretty early than expected. Maxis has now started to accept registration of Interest for the BlackBerry Torch with its latest BlackBerry 6.0 OS. Also open for registration is the Blackberry Curve 3G.
This is the first offering of the devices in Malaysia. BlackBerry kings in Malaysia, Celcom, had already offer solid pre-bookings for the BlackBerry Curve 3G last week.
As usual, no pricing details are available yet and we wonder which one will be launched first. The iPhone 4 or BlackBerry Torch?
