Popular online storage solution, Dropbox is now out of beta and officially available for BlackBerry devices.

Download Dropbox via BlackBerry browser here.
Celcom Axiata is offering the micro SIM nationwide starting from October onwards. Selected Blue Cube outlets will be offering it as well. Although Celcom is not bundling any iPhone 4 or iPad 3G at the moment, they are obviously wanting to cash in on the new devices with this SIM format.
For new broadband subscribers, it is believed that you can select micro SIM instead of the normal SIM for free.
So iPhone 4 and iPad 3G users, you now have a 3rd choice with Celcom.

RIM is believed to be unveiling a new tablet at a developers conference next week. This was rumoured to be the BlackPad but we believe RIM would give a better name for this BlackBerry Tablet. Some are even suggesting it could be called the SurfBook.
According to an article by WSJ, the tablet device is 7″ and it features either one or two cameras. Connectivity wise, it supports bluebooth and broadband connections but said to be exclusively possible through an existing BlackBerry smartphone device.
Another surprise is that it doesn’t run on BlackBerry 6 that was launched recently. Instead the tablet is to be running on a new platform built by QNX Software System which was recently acquired by RIM. So there you have it, now Apple, Android and Blackberry will be having their own tablets. We can’t wait to see the device next week.

(Update: 23092010 00:09hrs) DiGi claims it’s iPhone 4 offerings are the most affordable in the country. Read all about it here.
(Update: 22092010 15:33hrs) We just got our invite for the DiGi launch tomorrow. Thanks you DiGi PR 😀 Also big thanks to the unnamed source. We don’t know you but you’re awesome!
(Update: 22092010 15:33hrs) Our unnamed source says that it is confirmed that DiGi will be holding a media launch for the iPhone 4 tomorrow, 23 September at 1800hrs ahead of Maxis. iPhone 4s are no available for purchase at media launch but demo units are available for playing around with. At the event DiGi will reveal it iPhone 4 plans. It is also revealed that you will be able to purchase the iPhone 4 from DiGi from 25 September onwards at the One Utama roadshow. We are still trying to get invites for this event. DiGi PR, if you’re reading this, please do drop us a line. Thanks! 🙂
Word on the street is that DiGi will launch the iPhone 4 at the same time as Maxis but we are getting unconfirmed reports from an unnamed source that DiGi will be launching the iPhone 4 TOMORROW, 23 September. Specifically at 1800hrs, a full 6 hours ahead of Maxis’ planned midnight iPhone 4 launch.
The source is unable to confirm if this is simply a plan unveiling or if subscribers will be able to get the iPhone 4 on the spot. And it looks to be a media event, possibly not a public one, which means it’s invitations only. Whatever it is we’ll update you on developments as it happens.
DiGi once again has launched another ROI, this time for the upcoming BlackBerry Torch 9800. Just like the rest of its BlackBerry offering, it is bundled together with DG Smart Plan.
So far DiGi hasn’t thrown any early bird goodies like the other 2 telcos. If they follow the same trend as the Curve 3G, DiGi might be the last among the 3 to reveal its official pricing.

Another update on 4G LTE in Malaysia. The Star reports that majority of the earlier mentioned 9 companies have been informed via fax that they have been allocated the 2.6GHz spectrum for 4G LTE use. This will only take effect on 1st January 2013 which is a long way to go, and time is something that the players need to roll out commercially. As mentioned earlier, the 9 companies are Maxis, DiGi, Celcom, U Mobile, P1, AMAX, YTL, REDtone and a new comer. Each of them will be getting 20MHz block of the spectrum.
2 years should give the players sufficient head start to evaluate vendors, conduct trials and plan out their coverage expansion. By 2013, we should have more 4G LTE devices in the market. Hopefully better than the Samsung Craft, the first 4G LTE phone.

(Update: 23092010 16:30hrs): Maxis puts back link for Rate Plans on iPhone 4 page.
In a surprise move, Maxis has removed its iPhone plans and pricing from its website.
Is Maxis adjusting its iPhone 4 plans to counter a better offer from DiGi? With still 2 days to launch, anything is possible. However we felt that Maxis is getting a little fickle minded these days with its show and disappear act on the iPhone 4.
Pricing is obviously sensitive information and if they are not confident of launching it first, revealing them officially days before the launch would definitely catch its competitors attention. Some are speculating that DiGi could beat Maxis to the launch by several hours. Maxis could be waiting to see DiGi’s offer first before they reveal their actual launch plans.
So would the iPhone 4 be cheaper than its earlier published price? It is possible but we’re not expecting them to reduce the iPhone price any further. Perhaps more calls and data quota for their iValue Plans?
You can still view the Maxis iPhone 4 plans here.
