It has been a while.

Closure was a path chosen by TGB for his daytime business.  No, TGB didn’t shutdown his official business as which he knows many of his frienemies are wishing …

The fact is, TGB choose to carry on believing what he does best and going at it alone, without any business partners.  Yes, that’s right, took TGB a while, but I have managed to finally secured every last share in my company.

So now that 2 of his 3 legal cases on hands is finally over – bearing that the 3rd Legal Case doesn’t even technically belong to TGB, he just have to help someone get it sorted out … TGB is gonna be back.

Yes, I have missed blogging about new Sony and Microsoft devices.
In fact, I have missed out on the Prime Time to blog about Nokia coming back to the Smartphone world.

Well, better late than never they say.

Up next, Sony’s somewhat-new launch … in TGB’s new possession …

maxresdefaultFinally gotten a chance to use this baby after buying it for nearly two weeks.

Must say, I am impressed with it.

 

copter swing, just when you thought your phone is safe …

Trust me, if you think FlappyBirds was tough, well try this.

No i am serious. It is diabolically tough.

TGB can never get past 5points.
I fear for my Android phone`s screen.

Oh well, Copter Swing, now available on iOS App Store and Google Android PlayStore.

You have been warned.

Brace yourselves for awesomeness! Sony Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact rumours getting real.

Well, a couple of hours ago, this was leaked online.

With the rumoured model number SGP621 it seems that the very recently rumoured Sony Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact is fast becoming real.

BSC10 Bluetooth Speaker Dock with Magnetic Charging Pad

Did I tell you that the Sony BSC10 actually works very well with my Nokia Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia 930 devices to play sweet awesome music, though I just cannot charge them … still use them as a “talking station” whenever I am on SKYPE.

This image above is apparently a revision to the BSC10, Bluetooth NFC Enabled Speaker Dock, which TGB is also very proud to have bought it from V3 Audio & Video in Sim Lim a couple of weeks ago.

Looks like Sony is not just gonna come up with new accessories to squeeze more moolah from their loyal consumers, unlike some Shamedung brands …

And from the maths of the attachments that comes along with the Sony BSC10, it seems that the Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact is gonna be a mere 6.5mm thick.

Well Sony Fans, BRACE YOURSELVES FOR AWESOMENESS!!!

Because IFA 2014 is coming.  *ps. I should be in Berlin I think … DANG!

More leaked shots of Sony Xperia Z3

Let the leaks begin!

Rumours has it that it is 1.8mm thinner than Z2 … same screen size and lighter.  I hope there is an improvement to the camera thought.

It is September yet?

(Disclaimer:  Leaks from @evleaks, and TGB is not the original source of these leaked images.)

Of course, if there is not much improvement compared with Z2 … TGB shall for once say, “Thou Shall Pass!”

Sony Xperia C3 – Probably the world’s first Front Camera phone with Flash for the Selfie Addict

xperia-C3-gallery-06-1240x840-834e0cd639cbaeaa0270ac74d047f619

Sony has recently announced the Xperia C3 and C3 Dual – a front camera centric device that is designed for the Selfie addict in mind.  Armed with a LED Flash both at the front and the back, with 5MP camera and 8MP camera respectively.

The back camera is really nothing to shout about in the opinion of TGB.  No G-Lens, No OIS, nor any IP58 features.

The front camera is though an interesting concept.

5MP Wide-angle view lens that allows more to be captured on the camera for those who loves taking pictures of themselves.

Truly a lifestyle product for the narcissistic, i reckon this product will sell very well in developed cities like Taiwan, Singapore, China and Japan.

So for those of us who don’t take selfies (as much as we want to) and who hates seeing selfies on your Social Media feeds, brace yourselves!

Key Specs of Sony Xperia C3 (LTE version)
Display: 5.5″ Screen with Triluminious display
Resolution: 720 x 1280px
Processor: 1.2GHz Snapdragon
RAM: 1GB
Storage: 8GB with Expandable Memory upto 32GB
Camera (Front/Back): 5MP/8MP
Battery Capacity: 2,500 mAh

Good enough for those of you who loves to take pictures of yourself.

Now to wait for the product and do a feature test against the HTC One M8, the only device that TGB thinks that by far has the best Selfie Feature in the market.

Enough of the Apple bashing Samsung!

To Samsung Mobile,

Dude, get a grip of your frigging products first before you freaking start bashing Apple.  Everyone who reads TheGeekyBeng knows that I am no Apple iOS fanboy, but really, for a brand whose atrocious battery life is classified as Rotten, you really have irked the hell out of TGB who is gonna issue you a challenge!

I will take my Lumia 1520, my Sony Xperia Z2 to compete with your BEST newest Device in terms of battery life and see who wins!

The Next Big Thing is ALREADY OVER!

It is the Era of Sony, XiaoMi and Microsoft Nokia!

It has been a while …

Yeah, TGB haven’t been posting for a while, mainly because he actually had to work + lack of new flagship phones to play with + down with flu or is it dengue for a week so far.

Anyway, some exciting news coming to TGB within the next 10 days.

1. RedMi Note going on sale on 8th July 2014 at 12pm in Singapore through http://www.mi.com/sg … at an incredible price of S$199.  To think TGB was banking on S$209 for the sale price of the phone and wanted XiaoMi Singapore to give me the F-Code.  DANG!

2.  Very reliable sources (since it has been out in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and all around the world) that next week, on a Thurs, TheGeekyBeng will get his hands on a brand new Flagship phone.  YES!!! Is it Thurs yet?  So effectively speaking, this brand new Flagship phone that can match his “somewhat” brand new Tumi Bag, will be released to the market two days later.  So watch my space on 10th July 2014 for a Preview of this supermegawesomedelic Flagship phone.

And some sad news, since you guys also know that TheGeekyBeng is also a Sony lover, and that the beloved Xperia Tablet Z2’s ultimate NFC BT Keyboard Leather Case

BKC50-Bluetooth-Keyboard-with-Tablet-Cover-Stand-black-1240x840-bc1af015f543b87cb5d4644bc96a7851
Well, it has met its demise before the launch.  And yes, TGB is extremely sad that he cannot bring the keyboard equipped Android Tablet as he main travel companion for his Europe trip …

But it is ok, since you know, TGB never gives up …

Thus, he have embraced a two solution route for this travelling issue.

1. Bought an 11″ MBA which fits perfectly into the Tumi Bag.
10483134_10152168310926200_5400391438046058191_o

2. “Outsourced” to his favourite Sony Retail store, to help him find a 3rd Party Leather Casing that will fit perfectly with the Sony’s NFC BlueTooth Keyboard so that he can STILL bring along both devices for the trip.

#FirstWorldProblems

Last but not least, thanks to Nokia or should I say, MSFT Devices for loaning me a Prototype Lumia 635 – an uniquely super fast device at a remarkable price of S$239 only ….

More details of this awesome tiny device later.  Time to rest my body.
