The YES 4G Phone Launch on 3rd of May

Now, if you’re a techie you would have heard the news by now and probably waiting in anticipation as much as I am.

I got the invite to the launch a few days back, while I was busy commuting between KL – Johor – Singapore for my Firefly media trip and also to cover the World Gourmet Summit 2012.

It was a hectic week, and as I sat down now to draft this post, I’m exhausted but really curious about this phone; dubbed the world’s smartest 4G phone.

I have seen a prototype of it some months back when we met the CEO of YES, Wing over a separate event. It looked incredibly fine back then, but the team has hinted that the current finished product is even better.

I can’t say I’m as excited as I was last year, since it has been rumoured to launch God knows since when. My attention, just like every techie’s, has been diverted with the recent launch of the HTC One X (which I bought quite a few!) and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy SIII.

Well, better late than never. So 3rd of May 2012 it is then.

My HTC One X remained unopened since the day I bought it, no thanks to the hectic travelling assignments I have been on lately. So shall I sell it? RM1900, anyone? 🙂

    4G technology is good but the down side is the unreliable network providers issues. 4G is launched to free up space for other digital transmission to take place(digital tv). All the hype about it is great but would you settle for an unstable connection? 3G HSDPA is still the best.

      Hmm.. I’m not sure what you meant by unstable connection as I had no issue (assuming the YES service I have been using all along is 4G) with my connection and I constantly travel within the state and the country.
      There were connection problems at times, but usually solved within the week when reported.

    Just wasted RM600 something to replace new Iphone 4 that accidentally fell into water. Does this phone come with international warranty? I think this is one of the major thing that I will look up when I want to buy a new phone since recent accident happen to me.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Huh? All apple products is international warranty isn’t it?

      1. Akulah Pak Lan

        yup international warranty. but once fall into water, its consider void.

      2. rebeccasaw

        But yeah, all phone also same la. Anyhow u got it fixed right? Else buy HTC One X frm me! 😛

        Paid around RM620 and swap with totally new Iphone4 + 3 month warranty. I think this is still worth since I dont need to buy a new one. This is the best thing happen to Apple user. hehe…

    gahh, i think if i were a techie, i might be bankrupt by now, with all these snazzy gadgets constantly coming out! i might not know which to get, so i’d get all of them! hahah 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Actually, that’s what most techies does! They by, then sell , then buy.

    yes? sound good…trying almost everything wireless broadband for travel purpose : celcom, digi,maxis,p1 but none met my expectation….Umm.. maybe i should give yes a try…

    1. rebeccasaw

      Same here. Been travelling alot. So I nd connectivity at all times.
      I hope YES will give us more affordable travelling options – data and calls -wise. Have you tried Flexiroam? No data though.
