Thanks Dropbox.

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

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.

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.

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.

TheGeekyBeng had intend to troll Nokia Singapore during the End May Event at MSFT at One Marina Boulevard. Especially when the whole #GreenDuck invite was sent to us. I am afterall, still a Lumia lover.

Frankly speaking, the Nokia X family devices are, how should i put it nicely, major-atrocity out-of-the-box.  I first encountered the Nokia X in Thailand when I was having my usual monthly pilgrimage to my retirement homeland in early May, took a shot of it and shared it on my Facebook with my friends.  And when Nokia Singapore invited me to experience the XL for myself sometime in the last week of May, I had actually prepared to troll them with my RedMi and Sony Xperia Z2 that night. Opps! Sorry Nokia Singapore!

How we know it is awesome?

TGB was window-shopping at IMM yesterday,  when he stroll into Coach Men’s Outlet Store and saw a bag that he have been putting off to buy.   An equally eagle-eyes Sales assistant caught a glimpse of the outstanding Nokia XL in TGB’s possession.   What was supposed to be a window-shopping trip left TGB with a 1.2k Coach Bag at 50% + 30% discount and a bunch of Coach sales assistants that is sold at the awesomeness of the Nokia XL.

Anyway,  impromptu lunches on a terrific Tues is always very rewarding.   And Coach IMM guys,  I will be back!

Post done on the Super Awesome Nokia XL.
