Toshiba has finally introduced its line of Android Tablets in Malaysia with their 10″ Regza AT100 and 7″ AT1S0. The guys from Lowyat.NET managed to get a hands-on of the 2 tablets at the launch event. They have reported that the 10″ AT100 WiFi version is priced at RM1,699 and comes with 1GHz dual-core processor and 32GB of storage. The pricing of its smaller 7″ tablet hasn’t been revealed yet but it comes with a smaller 16GB storage capacity.
Although the Regza AT100 looks bulky, it is much more versatile with its massive offering of ports. It comes equipped with a built-in SD Card reader, a full sized USB, micro-USB and HDMI port. These ports are often sold separately as an adapters on other tablets and having them built-in is pretty convenient. For that rugged look, the AT100 is wrapped with a rubberised and textured body.
Unfortunately there wasn’t any sightings of the AT200 which is the thinnest tablet around at only 7.7mm!

UPDATE: Celcom updates Galaxy Tab 8.9 spec to 1.0GHz processor.
Suddenly the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is getting on the bundling bandwagon in Malaysia. Now Celcom is also offering the Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G version from as low as RM1,288.
There are 2 plans on offer, Celcom Broadband Basic with 4GB/month and Celcom Broadband Advanced with 6GB/month which can be subscribed with either 12 or 24 months commitment. For the cheapest bundle price of RM1,288 is tied with 24 months contract of Broadband Advanced at RM98/month.
Those seeking for the least commitment and contract duration, the Tab 8.9 can be yours for RM1,398 with 12 months contact of Broadband Basic. When compared to Celcom’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 offer, the price difference is RM180.
If you take a closer look, Celcom has listed the Tab 8.9 to be running on dual-core 1.5GHz. From what we understand, both Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 for this region are running on dual-core 1.0GHz processor. It is either Celcom is offering the US 4G LTE version with 1.5GHz processor or it is another product mistake by Celcom like their Droid RAZR. If you are looking for the WiFi version, it is offered at RM1,679 with Yes Huddle 4G MiFi and credits.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi is now available for bundling from Yes. The package deal at RM1,679 comes with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (worth RM1,299), a Yes MiFi Huddle (worth RM399), Yes ID (worth RM50) and RM90 credit (RM30 x 3 months). This gives a total savings of RM159 from the total value.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 had entered the Malaysian market earlier this month quietly at RM1,699 for the 3G version and RM1,299 for the WiFi only version. Compared to the its larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 sibling, the Tab 8.9 is identical in terms of processing power, memory and screen resolution despite its small dimensions. If a 10.1″ is too big to handle, a 8.9″ is a more practical size and it is also 95 grams lighter. This offer with Yes bundling is available at Senheng, Harvey Norman and Yes outlets from tomorrow 25th November until 31st December 2011.
If you’re confused with the various Galaxy Tabs in the market, check out our Samsung Galaxy Tab comparison post where we compare all the specs side by side. Next month, we would be expecting the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 7.7 to hit Malaysia. So far, U Mobile has already commenced registration of interest for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus with official availability slated for 5th December.

Not sure if many of you know this but HTC first started off as a little known computer manufacturer that then ventured into manufacturing phones for well-known brands like HP and Compaq (remember the the days of the iPAQ?). HTC also manufactured the once very popular Palm Treo 650.
Today, HTC stands proud as a prominent technology brand with an accomplished track record of innovations.
Check out this short video showcasing HTC’s long history in technology. For the older geeks out there, you can certainly relate to the iPAQ, O2 and Dopod devices that were developed and manufactured by HTC. We were fans of the XDA series and the iPAQ really set the standard for PDAs back then. Two of the particularly memorable ones were the hw6515 with is built-in GPS and iPAQ 5555 with its biometric thumb scanner. For the younger geeks who are HTC users, its nice to know the kind of pedigree that comes with the brand.
