For a better mobile experience [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) POWER-PACKED: If you like it big and fast or with great imaging features, get your hands on these mobile devices
The Z30 is said to be the biggest, fastest and most advanced smartphone from BlackBerry. Their latest model features a 5-inch display and the largest battery (2880 mAh) yet on a BlackBerry smartphone. Running on the 10.2 operating system (OS) and using a 1.7 GHz processor with quadcore graphics, the all-touch phone promises to make your browsing and gaming experience more exciting.
According to the company, the latest OS offers hundreds of refinements in addition to many new features to help users be more productive.
If you are looking for a device that consolidates and simplifies your communications, messaging and productivity experience, the BlackBerry Z30 is the one.
For better connectivity in low signal areas, the phone is built with a new generation antenna technology to better tune reception, enable faster data transfers and fewer dropped calls. One of its key features is the BlackBerry Priority Hub, which understands your priority messages across your email, social networking and other accounts and gives you instant access to the conversations most important to you.
BlackBerry's messaging has also been given a facelift with the BBM Now in Any App and Message Previews Everywhere. You can now preview messages, dismiss them or tap it to read the full content and respond as it arrives, no matter what app you're using at that point of time.
To make BBM Voice and BBM Video chats sound more natural and realistic, BlackBerry has included the new technology as part of the BlackBerry 10.2 OS.
The smartphone is expected to be available towards the end of the year.
Nokia Lumia 1020
It's all about quality imaging with the latest Nokia Lumia 1020. The company claims that this is the first smartphone to exceed many standalone digital cameras in terms of image quality capture.
Packed with Nokia's innovative PureView technology, a second generation 41 megapixel sensor, Zeiss Optics with six lenses and optical image stabilisation, the phone promises to produce some of the sharpest images possible by any digital camera. With the dual capture feature, you can now take a high resolution 38 megapixel image and at the same time create a five megapixel picture that is easy to share on social networks
For blur-free videos with stereo sound, the phone has the Rich Recording feature which handles sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones.
The Windows Phone 8 is supported by over 175,000 apps and has many of Nokia's leading services such as the HERE suite of integrated location services which includes maps with augmented reality.
For a better camera experience with the Lumia 1020, Nokia has designed the Nokia Camera Grip accessory, which can be attached to any standard camera tripod.
The Camera Grip has a built-in, rechargeable 1020 mAh battery to capture up to 285 more photos.
The smartphone will be available at the end of the month in the Klang Valley and in the beginning of next month in the rest of the country. The Nokia Lumia 1020 comes bundled together with the camera grip accessory and will be priced at RM2,499.
