Tim Cook will be unveiling the iPhone 5 tonight and if you’re staying up to catch the latest info right as it happens, here are the live blogs that we follow and recommend you do too.
The event kicks off at 1000hrs PST — that’s 0100hrs Malaysian time. We’ll be tweeting thoughts and the latest details about the iPhone 5 during the event. If you’re not already following us on Twitter, now is probably the best time to start.
What can you expect with the iPhone 5?
Much of the details are almost certainly confirmed like a 4-inch display (the largest in an iPhone), an all-aluminium body, a smaller and redesigned dock connector that’s rumoured to deliver faster data transfer rates as well. You can also expect a bump in processing power with a quad-core processor and probably a bump in RAM as well. The iPhone 5 name is pretty much confirmed as well.
The switch to nano SIM is also looking like it’s going to happen as is the new in-ear headphones. There’s not much talk about the camera so we’re not expecting a megapixel bump but an enhanced imaging sensor and improved camera app is a safe bet.
Naturally, Apple will want to introduce new features with new iOS 6 operating system that will come with the new iPhone and not much has been revealed about this, so expect surprises here like an improved Siri and other smart features.
See you on Twitter.
Time has recently introduced its new Fibre 100Mbps Home Broadband that’s offered at only RM179/month. At 100Mbps, this is the fastest home fibre offering at the moment, beating the rest of the fibre players right now. Unlike the rest which offers unlimited quota until futher notice, the Fibre 100Mbps Home Broadband offering is limited to 100GB per month.
Based on their FAQ, there’s no installation or deposit charges for now and only monthly subscription fees apply. The subscription comes with a Cisco router and a free DECT phone. Just like other fibre plans in the market, the plan is tied with 24 months contract.
The high speed fibre comes with its own limit as well. Once the 100GB quota is reached, the download speed will be throttled to 1Mbps. To regain full speed, Time is offering quota top ups below:
1GB – RM10
5GB – RM25
10GB – RM50
Just like other Home Fibre offerings, Time also offers voice calls which are charged at 15sen/min. For those that make regular calls each month, there’s the Add-On Voice plan which bundles RM15 worth of credit and a lower 10sen/min call rate for just RM10/month. The voice plan also offers a low 8sen/min call rate to selected IDD destinations.
For users that use more than 100GB per month and need volume rather than speed, Time also has the Unlimited Home Broadband plans which comes with unlimited quota. Price starts from RM129/month for 8Mbps, all the way to RM399/month for 50Mbps. If you have the sudden need for speed, there’s a special 50Mbps boost option that’s being offered for plans below 50Mbps. Each month, you can have 30 hours of boost speed and if you need more, it can be purchased at RM10 for 2 hours, RM30 for 8 hours and RM50 for 20 hours.
Time Fibre is available at selected high rise residential condos and office buildings in the Klang Valley. You can check if your place is covered here.

If you calculate the monthly subscription, the total ownership cost is just RM576 or RM516 if you opt for auto billing (RM5/month rebate). Not bad considering the HTC EVO 3D used be to a high end device selling at RM2,199 during launch. The Samsung Galaxy Gio is a 3.2″ HVGA device that runs on 800MHz processor while the HTC EVO 3D is a rather high end device with 4.3″ Stereoscopic 3D display and dual-core 1.2GHz processor.
At the moment, the HTC EVO 3D is temporarily out of stock. That should be a good buy if DiGi restocks it back soon.
