Current Production Numbers
Proton currently manufactures 2,000 Proton Saga SV units per month to meet the demand of its customers. Hisham Othman said in a press conference that “Currently, our production is enough to fulfil the number of bookings that we received, and we assure customers who make their bookings now that they can expect to get the car before Hari Raya.”
He added “With 4,000 units of the Saga SV booked to date, and with the numbers increasing every day, this strengthens the Proton Saga's position as the consumer's preferred choice of entry-level sedan. This is a very positive sign and we are optimistic that this will boost our mission to capture 30% of the domestic market share and subsequently increase Proton's revenue.”
Of the total pre-booked Proton Saga SV units, 65% requested for the CVT automatic transmission version, while the rest the demand is for the manual transmission variant.
The Saga SV Features
The Proton Saga SV was launched on June 15th, selling at a starting price of RM33,438 for the manual transmission variant.

Huawei Introduces the Ascend P6, the World’s Thinnest Smartphone

130618-Huawei-Ascend-P6
Huawei has lifted the covers off it’s latest flagship smartphone and at just 6.2mm thin, the Ascend P6 is, as the Chinese manufacturer claims, the world’s thinnest smartphone (in comparison, the iPhone 5 is 7.6mm thick, the Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z is thicker still at 7.9mm each, and the HTC One even thicker at 9.3mm).
The P6 packs a 720p 4.7-inch display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 2,000mAh battery, and 8GB of internal storage with microSD expansion. For those of you who are looking for LTE connectivity, Huawei says the LTE version of the P6 will ship later this year.
In the imaging department, the P6 sports an 8MP backside-illuminated sensor mated to a f/2.0 lens. If you’re into macro shots, you’ll be happy to know that the P6 can take close-up pictures from a minimum distance of just 1.5-inches.
At the front, the P6 packs a 5MP camera, and while megapixels don’t really translate to amazing images, it’s worth noting that the P6 has highest MP count for a front camera of any smartphone.
On paper, there’s not much to fault with the Huawei P6. It is, in every aspect, a decent phone wrapped in an extremely thin shell. But is that enough to make you want one over more competent albeit thicker rivals? We’re not too sure.
Head on over to after the jump to check out a couple of videos on the Ascend P6.

iOS 7 revealed with cleaner UI & usability enhancements

130611-ios-7-1
Apple is giving its iPhone and iPads a new breath of life with its latest iOS 7 operating system. After launching several mobile devices since 2007, the iOS platform has been pretty much the same with minute changes here and there. With the competition stepping up from the Android, BlackBerry and even Windows Phone camp, a change is needed by Apple to keep its mobile devices on par with today’s growing need.
Without a doubt, the iOS platform is one of the easiest to use mobile OS out there. Simplicity has always been a key which allows users from either young or old to pick up an iPhone or iPad and start using it with rather minimal learning curve.
For power users particularly those who have been comfortable with other flexible mobile platforms, would be harder to please on iOS. Biggest challenge is how could Apple offer more control and features but yet maintain the simplicity that it is has been famous for?

Purported entry level full touch screen BlackBerry Z5 leaked



130606-blackberry-10-z5
After the announcement of its high end BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 models, we’ve seen BlackBerry rolling out cheaper alternatives such as the BlackBerry Q5. The above image is apparently the purported entry level version of a BlackBerry 10 device with a full touch screen experience, in other words, a cheaper Z10. Currently it is dubbed as the BlackBerry Z5 and currently there’s no details of its internal specs but it shouldn’t be far off from what the Q5 is offering.
The BlackBerry 10 OS is definitely a refreshing and from our hands-on experience, the gestures are pretty easy to get used to and feels natural in single hand use. At the moment, the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 are priced the same range, if not higher than its Android and iPhone rivals. The challenge would be to bring the experience to the masses, and having an affordable offering is crucial for BlackBerry.
