Coming in late for the party, U Mobile is offering the Samsung Galaxy S III at their shops very soon. For now, they have started its registration of interest.
According to the page, those that registered will be informed on collection details on the 29th of June.

The HTC One S plan from U Mobile has been revealed starting from as low as RM1,149. The HTC One S with its 7.8mm profile is priced at RM1,799 outright. In terms of hardware, the One S was announced as running on dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm’s S4 processor but recent reports have surfaced that we are likely to be getting a different processor which is overclocked to 1.7GHz. On U Mobile’s spec, it shows dual-core Krait processor at 1.7GHz which probably is a typo. Just like the rest of its HTC One Series, the One S runs on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0.
In terms of bundling, U Mobile gives you 3 options – U28, U58 and U88 which comes with 1GB, 2GB and 3GB data respectively. There’s only 1 contract duration of 24 months and only the black colour unit is being offered. More details of U Mobile’s HTC One S bundling here.
Beginning this Friday, HTC will be going on a mobile road trip begining this Friday 15th of June. For more information, head over to HTC’s Facebook page or hit the source link for the full details.

For the Xperia miro, it runs on a modest 800MHz Qualcomm MSM72275A processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage (2.2GB user accessible). Fortunately the storage is expandable via microSD up to 32GB. Over at the front, it has a 3.5″ TFT display that pushes a rather low 480×320 resolution. It comes with a 5MP camera at the back (HD not mentioned) and a front facing VGA camera. It is 9.9mm thick and it weighs 110grams.
For an entry level device, the Xperia miro packs a rather huge 1500mAh capacity battery which is one of the biggest in its class. Sony claims a battery usage life of more than 24 hours for the miro. Considering the better spec dual-core 1GHz Xperia U is priced at RM899, we would expect the Xperia miro to be priced around RM700 range or less. More information on the Xperia miro at their microsite.
Next is the new Xperia tipo which is formerly known as the Tapioca ST21i. Just like the Xperia miro, the Xperia tipo also runs on a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A processor with 512MB RAM and 2.9GB of storage (2.5GB user accessible) that’s also expandable with microSD. The screen is smaller at 3.2″ TFT with 480×320 resolution and the glass is said to be scratch resistant. In terms of imaging, it comes with a 3.2MP camera that shoots VGA video. The Xperia tipo comes in 4 colours – Classic White, Classic Black, Deep Red & Navy Blue.
Despite its low specification hardware, it also runs on the current Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The Xperia tipo is juiced up with a 1,500mAh battery which claims to provide more than 24 hours of usage. For those that uses more than 1 SIM card, there’s also a dual SIM version called Xperia tipodual. No pricing details were given but both devices are said to be commercially available in Q3 2012.
More information on the Xperia tipo can be found here.

Sony Mobile has finally revealed its latest device, the Sony Xperia miro. It was revealed ahead of its intended 22nd June launch with its “Fast Forward” campaign on Facebook where users can have it uncovered much earlier. The new device comes with a 3.5″ screen which comes in 4 stunning colours – (white, black, black + pink & white + gold). No other hardware details have been revealed apart from the 5MP camera at the back which shoots video at 30fps, front facing camera, DLNA wireless connectivity, xLoud audio enhancement and it runs on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
What’s new on the device is that it comes with a unique illumination which looks like a sharp beam in the video. On the NXT series such as the Xperia S, P & U, Sony had incorporated the illuminated transparent belt design while the Xperia sola had a different “downlight” illumination effect underneath its elevated display block. The rest of its hardware details are expected to be revealed by next week. Judging by the size, this might be another mid-range device that’s similar to the Xperia U and Xperia sola. Hopefully it comes with removable battery and expandable microSD storage. In terms of design, the Xperia miro lacks a dedicated camera button and the volume rocker this time is located at the upper portion of the side.
