Desire HD and Incredible S users will be getting something special pretty soon. The HTC Desire HD and Incredible S is expected to receive an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread from its current Android 2.2 Froyo. Right now the update is being rolled out in Europe as we speak. If it follows the software upgrade trend of previous HTC devices, we should be expecting the update in Malaysia very soon. It might happen end of next week or the week after.
To update on a HTC Android device, it is done over the air (OTA) where you will be prompt to download. If you don’t have a 3G data plan, you can opt to download via WiFi. For those who can’t wait, you can head to Settings > About Phone > Software System Update and check manually if it is available.

UPDATE: Maxis has confirmed that the the white iPhone 4 is available at all Maxis Centres in the Klang Valley. They advise you tweet to @maxislistens on stock availability.
Maxis has revealed that it is offering the White iPhone 4 claiming it to be the first to offer it in Malaysia. A while ago, DiGi started a teaser that it is offering the White iPhone 4 but had not provided any availability dates. Singapore had theirs last Friday.
We have no idea whether it is available at all Maxis outlets at the moment but from the copy above, it looks like Maxis is riding riding on the Mother’s Day celebrations which is coming this Sunday, 8th of May.
For more information, head to Maxis’s iPhone 4 page.
Thanks to chengkiong for the heads up!
We spotted this teaser ad in the Star today and it looks like Celcom will be launching their consumer iPhone 4 plans tomorrow. We’re not sure how it will differ from the enterprise iPhone 4 plans launched earlier but we’ll stay on top of the news as it happens.
Thanks @adameben for the tip!
Lately we’ve been getting a lot of flak from a disgruntled blogger who writes for MalaysianWireless alleging that SoyaCincau.com is linked to and is being biased towards YTL Communications.
Not content with attacks on SoyaCincau.com, Kugan Kathegesen – blogger and owner of MalaysianWireless – started launching personal attacks on one of our writers (who is also the co-founder of this website) accusing him being engaged in industry espionage for YTL Communications.
We take these accusations very seriously and would like to make it absolutely clear that Kugan’s accusation that SoyaCincau.com and YTL Communications are in collaboration with one another is completely false and is based on nothing but speculation.
YTL Communications has never engaged SoyaCincau.com for any advertisements, advertorials or editorials, nor has SoyaCincau.com approached YTL Communications for any placement of ads on our website.
In the telco circles, Kugan has gained a notorious reputation for being a petulant and perpetually whining blogger who will throw a hissy fit on the most trivial of matters.
Because of this, many see Kugan as a person with no credibility. His blog is seen as irrelevant, filled with garbage that’s a shoddy mishmash of copy-paste posts which offer readers no real value or insights. Those who read MalaysianWireless will know that Kugan thrives on negativity.
And it is precisely for these reasons that we, like many others, have completely ignored MalaysianWireless and given the blog, and its writer, a permanent place in the blogosphere hall of shame.
While Kugan has launched numerous attacks on SoyaCincau.com and our writers, we have made a very conscious decision to ignore his allegations as they were all based on lies and half-truths. But when the lies got more and more outrageous and the attacks got more and more personal, we feel that we must put a stop to Kugan’s nefarious agendas and put him in his place.
But this post is not about Kugan or his blog.
This post is about the people behind SoyaCincau.com and about explaining the real situation to our readers based on truths and facts so that they can make their own conclusions.
Apple has released another commercial for the iPad 2 titled “If you asked”. Just like its previous “We Believe” commercial, the ad focuses on the experience and usability rather than shouting on tech specs.
The LG Optimus 2X, the first android smart phone to spot a dual-core processor has been certified as the world’s first dual-core by Guiness World Records with its launch on 25th January this year. The record entry can be found here.
However we felt that the term “first dual-core smart phone” is a debatable. No doubt it is the first for Android device but we do know that the Nokia E90 Communicator launched sometime in 2007 had a TI OMAP2420 processor with 2 cores. It is arguable that the E90’s dual-core is different from today as it had a core of 300MHz ARM processor while the other is a 220MHz C55x DSP which is meant for dedicated functions. To us, that still counts for having 2 cores although it is not running the way dual-core should be with identical cores. Perhaps the smart phone definition today has been revised which leaves out early generation smart phone devices.
Debate on dual-core aside, without a doubt that the Optimus 2X is in the forefront of offering dual-core Android device which heats up the competition among the major players. Even the Samsung Galaxy S II which we expected as the first to offer in Malaysia had to revise its launch plans to offer 1.2GHz dual-core processor instead.
