About 6 months ago, Lenovo Malaysia has announced that 2 Android tablets will be coming our way. The IdeaPad K1 was launched in Malaysia few months ago at RM1,499 but that didn’t created as much impact as the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The next device that is more anticipated is the ThinkPad tablet, which features a more business look from the iconic ThinkPad line of business laptops.
So far there hasn’t been any news about it until recently someone had spotted a newspaper ad which Lenovo seems to be clueless about. The ad reveals the ThinkPad Tablet price starting from RM2,199 for the 32GB version and there’s also a 64GB version as well. The person that spotted it tried to get more details from the retailers but none of them are aware of such device. On the facebook page, Lenovo later clarified that the ThinkPad tablets are on their way into Malaysia and should be available in mid-January 2012.
For RM2,199, that’s quite a lot to ask for considering Ice Cream Sandwich tablets like the ASUS Transformer Prime are on their way as well. However the ThinkPad tablet offers a wide variety of ports such as full sized USB port, mini-USB, mini-HDMI output and a full sized SD card slot. In terms of internal hardware, it runs on 1.0 GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera and front facing 2MP camera.
Is there anyone waiting for the ThinkPad tablet? IMCC has already listed the product at RM2,199 on their site but didn’t provide much details of the specification just yet.

While mobile device makers outdo each other with high end models, there’s always a market for mid-tier devices. There are people that won’t want to invest too much on a phone but yet requires smart phone features to stay connected. Lately we are seeing more Android phones with prices below RM1000 entering segments that once considered safe zone for featured phones. Just recently IMCC, a local retailer has announced 2 new Motorola Android devices below RM1000 mark – Motorola Fire and Motorola Fire XT.
The Motorola Fire priced at RM699 is an entry-level Android smart phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. It runs on a Qualcomm 600MHz processor, 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM with storage expandable with microSD. Above the keyboard, the Fire has a capacitive 2.8″ TFT display which does a rather low 320×240 QVGA display. Although the specs are entry level, the Motorola Fire runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. At the back it has a 3.15MP camera and is powered with a 1420mAh battery.
The next device Motorola Fire XT is a full touch screen Android device which is priced at a mid-ranged RM899. It has a modest Qualcomm 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM and 512MB ROM. Over at the front, it has a 3.5″ HVGA screen which pushes 480×320 resolution. In terms of imaging, it has a 5MP shooter at the back and a front facing VGA camera.

DiGi, Celcom and Maxis are scheduled to launch the iPhone 4S simultaneously at midnight tonight. If the commenter’s claim is true, DiGi could effectively be the first operator in Malaysia to release the iPhone 4S to subscribers.
DiGi is the only operator that is offering a delivery service for iPhone 4S to it subscribers, Maxis and Celcom subscribers will have to go to allocated stores and with that the possibility of long lines and wait time to get their iPhone 4S.
Any other DiGi subscriber that have received their iPhone 4S from DiGi today? Do let us know.
Update: The iPhone 4S is also available at Machines. Details after the jump.
UPDATE 2: iPhone 4S now available on Apple Store from RM2,199.
Last week, Celcom was the first to offer pre-booking where iPhone 4S hopeful can fill up a form to secure their unit. However that wasn’t that convincing as registrants didn’t get any confirmation code or email for assurance.
This was followed by Maxis which offers RSVP for selected subscribers. They are given a link to book their units at their preferred time slots. Maxis execution was better as subscribers we’re given a unique code and clearly Maxis was better in handling from their last iPhone 4 launch.
On Sunday, DiGi has up the ante by offering pre-ordering where the iPhone 4S plans and pricing was revealed. Users that want to be the first “owners” could actually buy it online and have it shipped directly to them on 16th December. This makes DiGi the first to sell the iPhone 4S, but they would still need to wait for delivery on 16th December itself..
So which of the 3 actually lets you have one at the stroke of midnight? Read on as we list out the launch sales activities and availability.
