(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Affordable Nokia Asha 503
Nokia's first 3.5G model in the new generation of Asha Platform smartphones, the Nokia Asha 503, is available for purchase.
Priced at RM319, the device features a built-in five megapixel camera with LED flash, a 3-inch full-touch display and fully redesigned user interface.
Swipe is the main gesture for navigating the phone, whether answering a call, viewing notifications, closing an app or to activate the camera. The Nokia Asha 503 comes with a 4GB micro SD memory card in-box and can accommodate up to 32GB of external memory. It's available in single SIM and Easy Swap Dual SIM variants, which allow users to switch between SIM cards on the go.
LG's side-by-side refrigerators
LG Electronics has made available its newest energy efficient side-by-side refrigerators. The three models - LG's GR-B207GLJV (581L), GR-L207GLXV (567L) and GR-R207GLJV (581L) - have energ- saving Inverter Linear Compressor technology, which has a 10-year warranty. The refrigerators have larger storage capacities, an external electronic touch control panel to adjust the temperature, express freezing and door-open alarm.
A unique feature is the Door-in-Door, which enables consumers to store their most commonly-used items in a mini-door, eliminating the need to open the main door, bringing not only convenience for consumers but also energy savings.
