Promo videos are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Sometimes when you pay close enough attention to promo videos, gems start to emerge.
Case in point, this recent video released by Samsung for the Galaxy S4. At first glance, it may look like any other feel good video but when you look closely, the video reveals three new colours for the Galaxy S4 — blue, brown and red. You can see the new colours on display in the video around the 1:08 mark.
No official word from Samsung yet but you can expect these new colours to be released soon.
Check out the promo video after the jump. It’s a pretty good video too.
HTC has just taken the covers off its latest offering to take on the mid-range market that the troubled Taiwan tech company say, bring premium performance and versatility to the mid-range smartphone market.
The Desire 600 packs a 4.5-inch LCD2 display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, dual-SIM support, an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front camera along with almost all the features seen on the HTC One like Sense 5, BlinkFeed and Beats Audio with BoomSound and dual front speakers in an affordable package.
HTC says the Desire 600 dual sim will be available with mobile operators and major retailers in a number of markets from early June 2013. No pricing detail was announced.
It’s always nice to have options but when you consider the Sony Xperia ZR would probably occupy the same price bracket, it’s hard to chose the Desire 600 over the Xperia’s water friendly talents. In this case, we’d go with the Sony. The ability to shoot videos underwater trumps dual-SIM support any day.
OtterBox, the makers of tough, durable, quality cases for smartphones have just released their range of protective cases for the Galaxy S4 in Malaysia, and if you’re looking for a case that offers more than just basic protection for your Galaxy S4, there’s really not much else that can compete with the OtterBox.
At the top of the range is the OtterBox Defender series with 3 layer protection and built-in screen protector. The the Defender case is made out of a soft yet durable, impact-absorbent outer layer, an interior polycarbonate hard shell and a built-in screen protector. It also comes with holster that holds your devices face in or face out and doubles as a stand. But with such a high level of protection, the Defender series makes the S4 bulky and don’t win any style points.
For less bulk, OtterBox makes the Commuter series case for the Galaxy S4. The Commuter series offers higher levels of protection over standard cases but none of the bulk of the Defender series. You get an impact deflecting outer shell and an impact absorbent soft interior slip cover. A screen protector is also included in the kit.
The Defender and Commuter series cases for the Galaxy S4 are available now at most gadget stores and retails for RM189 and RM139 respectively.

It turns out Microsoft can make interesting ads too. Like this one that pits a Windows 8 tablet — ASUS VivoTab Smart — against the Apple iPad.
As far as messaging goes, we will have to agree with Microsoft on this one. The iPad may be our preferred tablet for content consumption but when it comes a full-featured Windows 8 hybrid-PC running in tablet mode is just much more flexible with the things that you can do with it. So we’ll take the Windows 8 device over the iPad for a true all-rounder, do anything tablet.
