Fortunately it won’t take too long as HTC had apparently informed consumers that the delay would only push the launch until this Friday, 20th March. They will be updating its new devices with the latest software with the aim of making their latest flagship available as soon as possible.
Only the 32GB version would be available this week, as its larger 64GB model would be available only at the end of this month. To recap its earlier announcement, the HTC One M9 is sold at 21,900 TWD for 32GB and 23,900 TWD for 64GB. That’s equivalent to RM2,556 and RM2,790 respectively when converted directly.
For the rest of us in Malaysia, there’s still no news of its local launch but in the US, it is expected to be released on 25th March. On retailer B&H, the HTC One M9 32GB is listed at US$649, which is about RM2,402. Is the HTC One M9 a worthy replacement of the HTC One M8? Do check out our first impressions over here.
HTC’s very own fitness app the HTC Fun Fit is available for download now for devices running Android 4.1 and above.
While it looks like a more fun, character based version of Google’s Fit, it’s still quite cleanly laid out and uses your smartphone to do the usual fitness related tracking by keeping tabs of your steps, walking time, calories burned, distance and running time. It also lets you take a peek at how your friends are doing too.
WhatsApp has started rolling out it’s voice calling feature for Android users, but iOS users still have a bit of a wait for the feature to roll out onto their devices, but it won’t be a long one.
The report states that the Xiaomi smartwatch will sport a round dial and a brushed metal design, which doesn’t sound too much unlike the Moto 360. The watch is also said to offer pulse wave velocity identification which is a measure against arterial stiffness or the rate at which pressure waves move down the vessel. The Chinese company is also reportedly working on a successor to the Mi Band as well.
Details are quite sparse at the moment but given that it’s a Xiaomi device we can expect it to have a pretty affordable price-tag.
UPDATE: You can order the Meizu m1 Note now from MeizuMalaysia.com. It is also available starting tomorrow (19th March) from their 4 on-ground outlets listed below.

Images leaking out an alleged new selfie-centric smartphone from Sony have surfaced, with the device settings menu revealing it’s name to be the Xperia Cosmos.
No real word on the specs yet except that the Xperia Cosmos is booting Android 5.0 Lollipop, but that large front-facing camera with LED flash is hinting that the phone is likely to be aimed at the selfie crowd; and that it could be the successor of the Sony Xperia C3 which is currently going for RM 899 so it’s not entirely impossible that the Cosmos could be a mid-ranger around that price point as well.
With several devices and accessories seeing a price hike, Honor is going against the flow by offering additional discounts and extra freebies from today, 16th until 31st March. There will be a flash sale daily at 4PM where you get to enjoy up to RM100 off on Honor devices.
If you’re looking for a 5″ 4G LTE enabled device with great performance to boot, the Honor 6 which is priced originally at RM999 can be yours for only RM939. On top of that, they are throwing additional 32GB microSD card for free.
