They each won a V1 Double Zoom Kit Set (10-30mm, 30-110mm), Speed Light, and RM2,000 cash, certificate and a trophy.
Organised by Nikon Club Malaysia, The I AM Nikon Annual Photo Award 2012 ran from Jan 1-Sept 30, 2012, and garnered an impressive 73,000 photo entries.
Celcom gears up for LTE
CELCOM customers will soon enjoy lightning-fast data speeds with the availability of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
The telco is currently rolling out the network in major locations beginning with Klang Valley, Johor and Penang, says its chief marketing officer Zalman Affendy Zainal Abidin.
"LTE allows for higher data rates so we will be able to provide faster access data speed for customers and it will allow for more capacity. That means more users will be able to use 4G services within the same location compared to previous data technologies. We will also be able to transmit higher bandwidth or much more information over the data network," he said.
Among the devices that can be used to deliver Internet using the 2600MHz LTE spectrum are Wi-Fi dongles or modems, tablets and routers.
Celcom 4G LTE can be tested and experienced at selected Blue Cube stores including ones at Menara Celcom and Sunway Pyramid.
