ASUS to launch Fonepad in Malaysia on April 9

ASUS to launch Fonepad in Malaysia on April 9

ASUS is on its way to bring the recently-unveiled Padfone to Malaysia. The 7-inch slate with built-in 3G voice calling functionality will hit the stores in Malaysia as early as next month.
ASUS Fonepad - Malaysia Launch Event
A technical seminar will be held in KL on April 9. Judging from the invitation card that we’ve just received, ASUS Malaysia will most certainly launch the Fonepad on the very same day. The slate might not be available purchase right after the event. Probably will take one or two weeks to get to store shelves. How much will it cost? ASUS Padfone retails at NT $8,900 ($302) for the 16GB model in Taiwan, so if we convert the pricing to Malaysian Ringgit, that will be RM 927. But expect to see price mark-up. RM 999 will be a nice number. :-)
ASUS Fonepad 7-inch Tablet
To recap on the specs,  the Fonepad features a sleek metallic design with a 7-inch HD screen display with 1280 x 800 resolution and IPS technology for wide viewing angles. It is powered by the new Intel Atom Z2420 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, with 1GB of RAM and two storage options – 8GB or 16GB, expandable with a microSD card slot (up to 32GB). Users also get 5GB of free lifetime ASUS WebStorage.
It comes with a 3MP auto focus camera (for selected models only) capable of recording 720p HD video on the back and a 1.2MP front facing camera for video calling. It packs 4270mAh battery, giving users up to 9 hours of battery life.
Other features include 3G, HSPA+, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, Micro-USB port, 3.5mm headphone socket, noise-cancelling digital microphone, speaker and micro-SIM slot. Fonepad runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes with a number of exclusive ASUS productivity apps.

ASUS Transformer AiO P1801 Launched in Malaysia for RM 4,999

The all-new ASUS Transformer AiO P1801 has now landed in Malaysia!
Asus Transformer AiO P1801 Launched in Malaysia
Earlier today, ASUS Malaysia launched to local market the world’s first All-in-One PC that comprises of two different devices (a tablet and a PC Station) with dual operating systems – Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Transformer AiO which is bundled with a wireless keyboard and mouse, comes with a retail price of RM 4,999!
ASUS Transformer AiO PC

As mentioned earlier, the Transformer AiO works as a Windows 8 machine (desktop mode) when the tablet is docked to its base station (or rather known as PC Station). When you take out the tablet from PC Station, you can still run Windows 8 on the tablet by switching on the remote desktop mode. In the mode, the tablet serves as a remote desktop wirelessly connected to the PC Station. Turned on the Android tablet mode and the interface switches over to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. FYI, there is actually a dedicated Mode Key button that enables you to switch seamlessly between Windows 8 and Android.
Interestingly you can run both operating systems simultaneously. Yes, running Windows 8 and Android Jelly Bean at the same time! Get a monitor connected via HDMI port to the PC Station, giving you Windows 8 interface, meanwhile the tablet can run Android independently from the station.
ASUS Transformer AiO PC
Both PC Station and the tablet has their own set of hardware. PC Station is powered by a 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-3770 processor, with a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT730M GPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and 2TB SATA HDD storage. Other features include 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a DVD-RW burner, five USB 3.0 ports (4 USB 3.0), HDMI and LAN ports, and a 3-in-1 card reader. PC station supports dual band frequencies.
As for the tablet, it features a full HD 18.4-inch IPS LED-backlit screen with 10-finger multitouch support. It is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and up to 5 hours of battery life. The question is, it is heavy to hold the arguably the largest touchscreen tablet around? Well surprisingly, the tablet weighs only 2.4kg. So not too heavy to carry around, right?

ASUS FonePad Coming to Malaysia this April


The FonePad made its debut at the 2013 Mobile World Congress and is a new breed of 7-inch tablets to feature Intel Atom processors as opposed to the more conventional Snapdragon or Exynos chips in other tablets. Intel claims that its Atom chips designed for mobile internet devices offer better power efficiency over competitors.
The tablet is encased in an aluminium body (available in Champagne Gold or Titanium Grey) and feels like a premium version of the Nexus 7 with almost identical dimensions and the same display resolution of 1280×800 pixels pushing a pixel density of 216ppi. Powering the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean FonePad is an Intel Atom Z2420 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM.
Two variants are available, an 8GB unit for Asia which comes with a 3MP rear facing camera and a 16GB version for Europe without a rear camera. Over at the front, both versions get a 1.2MP secondary shooter.
Above all this, the most attractive feature of the FonePad is its asking price. Starting from USD249 or about RM780, the FonePad sits between the entry level ASUS Memo Pad and the Nexus 7.
Combine the attractive price with a premium build and the ability to make phone calls right out of the box, and you have a very good value for money tablet that will give other tablets in the segment a good run for their money, the iPad mini included. The FonePad is indeed well worth a look.
So when can you take a look at it? ASUS Malaysia is getting ready to launch the FonePad sometime mid-April. We’ll keep you posted on official pricing and availability. In the meantime, check out our hands-on video of the FonePad right after the jump.

Sony introduces 4.6″ Xperia SP and 4.3″ Xperia L

130318-sony-xperia-sp-xperia-l
Sony has just announced its new Xperia SP and Xperia L which is a mid to entry level Android smart phone device positioned right below its flagship Xperia Z/ZL. In 2012, we saw Sony NXT Series with the Xperia S, P and U which looked rather identical. This time around, the 2 new devices are distinctively different and inherits some of the interesting features from previous devices. Read on for the full details.

Sony Xperia SP

130318-sony-xperia-sp-01
First up is the Sony Xperia SP which features an all aluminium frame that gives it a more premium feel. The front comes with a 4.6″ Reality Display that pushes 1280×720 pixels resolution giving a pixel density of 319ppi. Powering the device is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor running at 1.7GHz which is mated with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It also comes with expandable microSD card storage, a 8MP rear camera and a dedicated camera button with Fast Capture. Over at the front there’s also a VGA camera for conference calls. On-board it comes with a decent 2,370mAh battery, NFC connectivity and overall it weighs 155 grams. It comes with 3 colours – Black, White & Red.
What’s more interesting with the Xperia SP is that the transparent belt is back and is now customisable with various colours. Not only it changes colours like the Xperia U, but you can even pick what colour to represent the type of notifications. Owners of the Xperia U would typically customise their transparent belt colours via a 3rd party app.
Following the Xperia Z design, the Xperia SP also features the brushed aluminium power button that’s located on the right side for easy reach. Overall, it does look like an interesting mid-range device and a worthy replacement of the former aluminium clad Xperia P.
For more details of the Xperia SP, head over to Sony’s product page.

Perodua launches S-Series Viva, Myvi and Alza – all Peroduas now come with 3 years free service

DSC_0153b
Perodua has taken the wraps of its new S-Series models, comprising the Viva S, Myvi 1.3 SE and Alza S. The Perodua S-Series is a new trim level that replaces certain variants in the respective line-ups such as the Viva BZ, Myvi 1.3 Premium and Alza Standard.
‘S’ stands for special, and Perodua describes the S-Series as its “most value-for-money variants” so far, with added equipment over the phased-out variants but with “no additional cost to the customer” – not to be confused with the range topping SE tag traditionally given to the priciest Myvi.
Let’s start with the Viva S, which is the entry-level 1.0L Viva (above the 660 BX and 850 EX but below the Elite) and the cheapest automatic transmission-equipped car in Malaysia. Priced at RM34,774 OTR without insurance, the Viva S adds on equipment such as power steering, seat height adjuster, under seat tray, seat back pockets, driver’s vanity mirror, MP3/WMA stereo and silver accents for the cabin, among other things.
viva-s
The Myvi 1.3 SE, which is priced from RM44,924 for the manual (solid) to RM48,424 for the automatic (metallic), gives the buyer Myvi 1.5 SE looks previously not available on the 1.3.
The styling pack consists of SE front and rear bumpers, front grille, side skirting and rear spoiler. Perodua has also thrown in a muffler cutter, single tone interior and painted AC vents, meter surround and centre cluster.
The Alza S, which replaces the Alza Standard, includes new kit such as fog lamps, leather steering, rear spoiler, chrome door handles (inside) and painted door arm rests. It is priced from RM53,517 (MT solid) to RM57,017 (AT metallic).
myvi-1.3-se
All S-Series models also get a multi-purpose container and two hooks on the front seat head rests, useful for takeaways and shopping. A range of colours are available, but S-Series cars get a special “Ozzy Orange” colour, similar to the hue offered on the special edition Kelisa and previous-gen Myvi.
New cars aside, Perodua is now offering three years of free service for all models (not just S-Series cars) registered from March 15 onwards. The deal is worth RM1,100 to RM1,200, according to the company, and it includes parts and labour charges.
The launch was officiated by Deputy PM Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who earlier in the day placed the first foundation stone of Perodua’s new RM790 million factory, which is adjacent to the company’s existing factory in Sg Choh, north of Rawang. It was announced in December last year.
DSC_0156b
The new plant, which will add 100,000 units to Perodua’s annual production capacity, is expected to be operational by mid-2014. Read more on that, as well as P2′s future plans, here.

The Asus PadFone Infinity delivers on specs, doesn't come cheap (hands-on)

The phone
Thanks mostly to its metal edges, the phone piece looks and feels not too dissimilar from an iPhone 5, but wider and a bit longer. It has a durable metal encasing and felt light in my hands. The buttons were raised just enough to deliver a satisfying click when pushed. If you're at all familiar with with Asus' Transformer line, then you won't be surprised by the tablet piece's form factor. It's about the same size as the Transformer Infinity and feels about as light; however, its body is of plastic as opposed to the cold, smooth metal of the phone. The phone slides smoothly into the back of the tablet and delivers a satisfying "shunk" when connected.

Once past the lock screen, the tablet handled incredibly fast. I was able to smoothly and effortlessly zip through apps screens, widgets, and menus at a breakneck pace. Asus tablets usually deliver particularly responsive screens, but this one seemed to respond to my finger swipes quicker than any Android tablet in recent memory. With the phone separated from its host body, the navigation was just as fast.
The PadFone ships with Android 4.2 and a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor with an Adreno 320 GPU. The phone features an aluminium-based unibody design and the Super IPS 5-inch screen packs in 1,920x1,080 worth of pixels, delivering a 441 ppi.

The phone and tablet come together not unlike Voltron to form the PadFone Infinity. The universe will never be the same!
(Credit: Sarah Tew/CNET)
On the back sits a LED flash-supported 13-megapixel camera featuring an f/2.0 aperture and according to Asus delivers lagless shutter speeds. There's also a dedicated image sensor that enhances photos captured in low light.

The brushed metal is smooth to the touch.

Asus also claims the camera can capture up to 100 sequential photos at 8 frames per second, while simultaneously recording 1080p HD video. A feature that could possibly eliminate the video or photo dilemma at crucial moments; however, the implementation is currently problematic, as the video recorded while taking still shots is noticeably choppy. There's also a front-facing 2-megapixel camera.
The Pad
The PadFone Station is simply a shell for the phone and has zero functionality unless the two are connected. It houses a 10.1-inch screen with 1,920x1,200-pixel resolution. Other features include a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, Micro-USB 2.0 port, an ambient light sensor, and an e-compass.

That moment, right before worlds collide.
(Credit: Sarah Tew/CNET)
GSM, WCDMA, and 100Mbps-capable LTE antennas are also included along with a non-removable 5,000mAh lithium polymer battery, which, according to Asus, fuels up to 40 hours of 3G talk time when the PadFone is docked. First thoughts
While the PadFone impresses with its high-end specs, with a price of 999 euros (this includes the phone and tablet), you'll definitely be paying for it. For those looking for more synergy between their devices, however, that may may be a price they're willing to pay. So, whether the PadFone ultimately provides some actual useful fucntionality or if it's simply overpriced gimmick tech remains to be seen.
Asus says to expect the PadFone in April in the U.K. No U.S. release is currently planned.

ASUS FonePad & PadFone Infinity

130228-asus-fonepad-01
ASUS has revealed its “Metallic Miracle” at MWC 2013 with 2 new devices – FonePad and PadFone Infinity. Probably the most interesting of the two is the FonePad, a new 7″ Intel Atom based tablet that lets you make phone calls at an affordable price. Meanwhile, the PadFone Infinity is the 3rd generation of its PadFone convergence device that offers both Phone and Tablet in a dockable format.
Read more on these 2 new devices after the break.
Let’s start with the new FonePad which is a nice 7″ tablet that comes with an all aluminium body. It comes with 2 colours – Champagne Gold and Titanium Grey. In the hands, it feels like a premium version of the Nexus 7 and has almost similar dimensions. Powering the device is a Intel Atom Z2420 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and it runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. In terms of screen, it has a 7″ 1280×800 IPS display which has the same 216ppi pixel density as its Nexus 7 sibling.
The FonePad will come in 2 variants – 8GB version for Asia which comes with a 3MP rear facing camera and a 16GB version for Europe that comes without a camera at the back. Over at the front, there’s a front facing 1.2MP shooter. The most attractive part of the FonePad is the price of just USD249 which puts it right smack in between the low end ASUS Memo Pad and the Nexus 7.
To top it off, the FonePad like its name suggests is capable of making phone calls and there’s a phone earpiece at the top. Not forgetting also is the 3MP camera which is lacking on the Memo Pad & Nexus 7. There’s no mention of its battery capacity but ASUS claims that it is capable of playing videos up to 9 hours.
The FonePad in our opinion is a star buy product with affordable pricing and premium body build. It will certainly give its rivals a run for their money in the 7″ tablets segment including the iPad mini.

ASUS PadFone Infinity

Next the PadFone has evolved further with the Infinity which now boasts Full HD displays for both phone and tablet station. The phone comes with a 5.0″ Super IPS+ display that does 1920×1080 while the tablet maintains the same 10.1″ as before but pushes a higher 1920×1200 pixels resolution. Powering the PadFone is a new Qualcomm SnapDragon 600 Quad-Core 1.7GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. The PadFone infinity now uses Nano-SIM which is the same SIM type used on the iPhone 5.
Following its MWC 2013 metallic theme, the PadFone now has a nice brushed aluminium finish. However the PadFone station retains the same matte brown surface just like its predecessor. In the imaging department, it has a new 5 elements 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and there’s a front facing 2MP camera. Battery capacity wise, the PadFone now has a 2,400mAh battery while the PadFone station tablet comes with 5,000mAh. At time of hands-on, it is running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean which is upgradable to Android 4.2.
With both devices docked together, it can get really heavy but the benefit of this solution is that you’ll only need a single 3G SIM connection for both Phone and Tablet. Since the PadFone is powering the tablet, switching between the 2 modes is pretty seamless as all your files and apps are stored in the same place. It is worth pointing out that the PadFone station tablet charges the PadFone when it is being docked. In case you’re wondering, the PadFone station tablet can’t work without the PadFone being docked into it.
No word on its availability in Malaysia but it is said that the PadFone Infinity will be priced at a rather pricey 999 Euros which is about RM4,000. Check out some sample shots taken with its 13MP shooter below.

New RM14.5mil Lamborghini Veneno Images Leak Online Ahead of Launch

New RM14.5mil Lamborghini Veneno Images Leak Online Ahead of LaunchBehold! The Lamborghini steals the thunder once again with leaked photos of the new Veneno. Despite the emergence of the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari F70 teasers, Lamborghini has, it seems, a response, just days before the start of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Lamborghini has strictly kept further information about the hypercar from going public, leaving the rest of the details to be revealed in the Geneva Motor Show. However, it is known that the Veneno will be limited to only three production units, all of which have  been sold!
What does it cost?
The name ‘Veneno’ is said to be translated from the Spanish term for ‘Poison’. Information was sourced by The Sunday Time newspaper, saying that the new Lamborghini Veneno will cost £3.1mil. (That’s a whopping RM14.5m!).
Preview of the performance
Powering the new Lamborghini Veneno is a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing a massive 740HP (552 kW). Adding to the heat of the news is the seven-speed ISR robotized manual gearbox that enables the Veneno to reach a blazing top speed of 354km/h.
There is nothing short of futuristic when it comes to the new Lamborghini Veneno exterior. With a big spoiler in the rear, carbon fibre inclusions all over, long sweptback headlights and massive wheels, the Veneno is monumentally impressive. More details and specifications will be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Hyundai Motor Co. saw the world’s first assembly-line fuel cell vehicle rolled out at its Ulsan manufacturing plant in Korea, when its Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell – a hydrogen-powered, zero-emissions vehicle – was deemed ready for fleet use.
The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell is a major breakthrough for Hyundai who look to turn the Korean city of Ulsan into the world’s landmark for eco-friendly automobiles.
Where are they going?
For now, the first 17 of these zero-emission vehicles will be delivered to customers in Denmark and Sweden; 15 will make their way to Denmark, where the City of Copenhagen aims to achieve a carbon-free environment by 2025. Two of the remaining Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell cars will be sent to Skåne, Sweden.
Hyundai Motor Vice Chairman, Eok Jo Kim, said at the grand event that, “The Hyundai ix35 (Tucson, as it is knows locally) Fuel Cell is the most eco-friendly vehicle in the auto industry and proves that hydrogen fuel cell technology in daily driving is no longer a dream.”
The future of the hydrogen fuel cell
By the year 2015, Hyundai aims to build 1,000 Tucson Fuel Cell cars for lease to public and private fleets, primarily in Europe; relative to the European Union’s initiatives to develop fuel cell refuelling stations around the place in preparing for the mass production of hydrogen fuel cell cars.
Post year 2015 will see Hyundai really kick into action with its fuel cell technology, after the infrastructure is in place to do so. Only then will we see fuel cell vehicles ready for consumer buying.
Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell How does it work?
Plainly, it runs on hydrogen; the most abundant resource in the world (water, pretty much). A fuel cell stack converts hydrogen into electricity, which then powers the Hyundai Tucson’s electric motor.
Hyundai claim that the performance of its Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell will be similar to that of its petrol counterpart; it also takes just as long to refill its tanks, unlike full EV cars that need hours to recharge. A full tank of hydrogen will run for almost 600km! (594km is we’re being pedantic).
The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell’s performance figures show 0-100km/h in a respectable 12.5 seconds, and top speeds of 160km/h.
