Yes 4G rates have been revealed before launch with a picture by @albnok. The picture shows a yes bunting with its official rates on it. From the Pay As You Go pricing, Yes charges 9 sen for 3MB of data, per minute of talk and per SMS. This makes it very affordable compared to other mobile players.
On data, it costs 3sen per MB which even beats TuneTalk’s 5sen per MB on EDGE connection. If you calculate further, this is equivalent to RM30 per GB which is quite affordable for mobile internet but costly for those who use it intensively at home. We wonder if this is only applicable for the mobile devices and whether they will come out with a different rate for home users.
More details will be revealed at the launch which is happening this Friday, 19th November 2010. All that matters now is their coverage and device pricing.

Battery information on your device is very critical especially if you’re heading somewhere without any charging source. Knowing what’s using your battery also helps in identifying what activity is sucking the most juice. There hasn’t been a proper way of finding out apart from gauging roughly with those battery bars.
To manage your battery resource, Nokia has released an application called the Nokia Battery App. Developed together with VTT Technical Research Centre, this app will help you understand your battery usage in the most simplest terms by giving you a estimated time remainder for different uses such as Talk, Music and Web Browsing. You can even add this as a widget on the home screen too. Apart from that, there’s even a nice little statistic feature which shows you how you’ve been using your battery so far. This is pretty much similar to the battery usage found on Android devices today.
With this app, you could possibly plan ahead your next charge and learn how to conserve your device energy better. Of course like any monitoring app, its accuracy may not be 100% but at least this gives you some form of reference for your usage. It is available for Nokia Symbian^3 and S60 5th edition devices which is downloadable from the Ovi Store here.

Mobile Review had just posted its hands-on preview on the yet to launch Anzu device from Sony Ericsson. This is the anticipated successor of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which is believed to be called the Xperia X12 when launched early next year.
The device runs on Qualcomms’s 800Mhz MSM7230 which is identical as the HTC Desire Z with Android 2.1 installed. The screen is slightly bigger at 4.3″ but displays the same 854×480 resolution as the X10. It is said that the new device will be able to support multi touch which has been a lacking feature in the Xperia X10. Mobile Review says that Android 2.2 Froyo for the Anzu is currently under development and will be made available during launch. Considering that it is launched early next year, it is quite a disappointment that it won’t be running on Gingerbread. Knowing how long it took Sony Ericsson to release the Android 2.1 update for Xperia X10, we are still unconvinced with Sony Ericsson’s commitment in pushing out the latest OS version.

This makes the Optimus One the fastest selling device ever by LG Electronics and it has been widely distributed in Europe, Asia Pacific and the US although it is hardly seen in our parts in Malaysia. At time of its announcement, the LG Optimus One was among the first few devices that comes shipped with Froyo as standard. It comes with a 3.2″ HVGA screen, 600Mhz processor and a 1500mAh battery making it a mid-range Android device. Well, looks like LG has the right formula in making a best seller despite having a lame looking commercial recently.

Earlier this morning, the buzz was all on the upcoming Nexus S device which was briefly teased by Google CEO Eric Schmidt. He also revealed that the next Nexus One successor will feature NFC which allows mobile payment from your mobile device. When questioned about his statement that Google is not making a Nexus Two device, he responded that he said there would never be a Nexus Two but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a Nexus successor at all.
