Sony VIAO Phone Biz Announced

New Release, Tech & Gadgets
Nokia (now Microsoft) has been making Windows phone in the Lumia line for a very long time now. HTC also has their own version on Windows Phone OS for a few years. Now Sony came up their own version of Windows 10 phone in their VIAO line. The new VIAO Windows 10 phone, also known as VIAO Phone Biz is aimed at business users and supports the Windows 10 continuum desktop mode. Most of the Lumia series comes in plastic casings that doesn't feel premium, the VIAO Phone Biz however comes in a sleek silver finished aluminum build. So if you're looking for a new Windows 10 based phone, this will look really sleek in your pocket. The VIAO Phone Biz comes with a Snapdragon 617 chip and 3GB of RAM. Although the chipset is a medium range CPU, running Windows 10 on it is a snap. Windows O

Photo of Mysterious New Xiaomi Phone Leaked

Rumours
Today we got to know that Xiaomi is possibly the third largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world. Hence why we are seeing a mysterious device by Xiaomi leaked through the internet. With their global expansion rapidly moving towards Europe and the Russian territories, it's no surprise that Xiaomi is giving us a big...err...surprise, with their new device. They are also in talks to set up shop in India beginning of 2015 and start their West-ward bound domination soon. Competition is tough in China, with Lenovo not letting Xiaomi to outpace them any further. Same goes with Huawei and Meizu. Meizu's new MX4 is going to be the main contender to Xiaomi's flagship but I'm not sure if Huawei's new Honor 6 or P7 can do a better job. The mysterious Xiaomi device is said to be powered...
Xperia M2 Aqua – A Mid Range Diver by Sony

Xperia M2 Aqua – A Mid Range Diver by Sony

Tech News
Sony unveiled their new mid-range Android smartphone earlier today. An evolve from the popular mid-range Xperia M2, the newly launched waterproof smartphone is known as Xperia M2 Aqua. What they did was making the popular M2 waterproof, which worked well, kinda. The Aqua has basically the same specifications as the non-aqua M2. The only upgrade is that they sealed the phone to allow it to take a swim with you. M2 Aqua is powered by a Snapdragon 400 Quad-core 1.2Ghz with Adreno 305 GPU. As for the memory space, you will get an 8GB ROM and only 1GB of RAM. I would like to stress here that 1GB of RAM is currently considered low for today's usage. If they were to upgrade the RAM to at least 1.5GB, it would make a world of difference in performance. I've used a phone that has the 1.5GB of RA...

Tech & Gadgets
It has been a while since I did my last research on the best entry-level or mid-range Android phones. I had a chance to review some of them and I spent some time "playing" around with what I think as the top 6 best Android phones under RM700 that are currently available in Malaysia. This time around it is not an easy task for me to choose which one is better than the other. Most of the newly released mid-range smartphones are packed with awesome goodness that were being used in the flagship phones a year ago. One year made a lot of difference in terms of price and technology. Now let's see what I've compiled. So this is my list of the most affordable phones as of the month of August 2014 which I think worthy of being published in this blog. #6 - Sony Xperia C Although Sony make...

And this baby is packed with premium specification that won't break your bank. Introducing - OnePlus One. How much does a typical Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 with 2.5GHz Quad-core CPU that comes with 3GB of RAM and having an Adreno 330 GPU powering the graphics, that also comes with a huge 64GB of internal space, a full HD 1920 x 1080 5.5 inch display that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, with a 13MP f/2.0 camera powered by Sony's Exmor image processor and dual LED flash plus able to shoot a 4K high definition video, that is also LTE ready would cost? (phew) Typically it would cost you an arm an...

10 Gadget Gifts for Geeks

Tech & Gadgets
We are now in the last month of the year and usually this is the time when (almost) everyone is out shopping for gifts. Yes. Christmas is around the corner and this is also the month where most people go broke for the last time in the year. Not that it's a bad thing. For some, it's when most companies will give bonuses to their employees. Well, only for those lucky ones I guess. And when that happens, most of them will be "attacking" the shopping malls for their shopping spree, whether they be buying things for themselves or for others. Gifts will be exchanged between friends and families. Some are useful, some are thoughtful and some are downright useless...sometimes. But what can you get or buy for a tech geek? Or a gadget freak like me for instance? Guess what. This blog post will pr...
