Russian bound Nexus S will come with Super Clear LCD instead and that got us thinking which version would us Asian be getting when the Nexus S comes to town (if it ever does).
If you’re wondering which display technology is better, well you can have a read on the comparison between the two here. Apparently Super Clear LCD uses more power, that’s not a good thing considering Super AMOLED is already a power guzzler in its own right based on our experience.
Anyway, which one would you prefer on your Nexus S?
Update (09122010 1514hrs): TM issues an official statement on the outage. Work to restore service is still underway.
TM confirms via its official Twitter account that some 2,000 UniFi subscribers are affected by a network outage.

The tweet only mentioned that restoration works are underway and that further update will be coming.
We’re awaiting updates from TM on details of this outage. Stay tuned.
One of the marks of a good operating system is consistency. What makes the iPhone so stupidly easy to use is the fact that where ever you are in the OS, no matter how many layers deep you’re in the settings menu, all the buttons — be it soft or hardware buttons — do the same thing and they are all at the same place.
With Android however, things get a little bit tricky, the open source nature of the OS means that manufacturers can essentially customise the platform — with layers of UI skins atop the original Android OS — to virtually any shape and form making maintaining consistency across the board a bit of a challenge to say the least.
This inconsistency, or fragmentation as it is more widely known, becomes very evident when you compare the buttons on some of the more popular Android device side by side. You’ll see the numerous permutations of the number of buttons a device has, its general location and its function.
Head on over to after the jump to see what we mean.
Those who’ve just gotten an iPad will probably read this and weep. Reuters reports that Foxconn — the manufacturer of everything Apple — will start shipping the new iPad — until now only known as the iPad 2 — as early as the end of February 2011.
It is revealed that an initial shipment of 400,000 to 600,000 units are expected come February 2011.
The report, citing unnamed sources from a Taiwan-based components maker that supplies Foxconn with components, claims that Apple originally planned to start mass production in January 2011 but the plans were postponed since the device’s firmware was still being tested.
Although this is unconfirmed and is still technically classified as a rumour, the sources from which this juicy piece of information was revealed makes the February 2011 shipment of the new iPad an almost certainty, and with that you can expect to see Apple launching the device on April 2011 as speculated.
Looking at the way things have been going with the iPhone launches, we are expecting the new iPad to be launched across more markets on the same day as the device’s debut in the US. Although, we don’t think Malaysia will be on the list to receive the first wave of shipments but here’s hoping.
Some of the enhancements that’s expected to be on the iPad 2 include, dual camera with FaceTime, Retina Display and a thinner, lighter form factor. For the latest on the new iPad, keep it locked on to SoyaCincau.com
