The One (M8) With Windows 8.1 Update One

HTC_M8_Windows

The soon to be announced HTC One (M8) running Windows Phone has been prematurely revealed, thanks to this image on Verizon’s servers. The switch to onscreen keys for Windows Phone, support for popular chipsets like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and HD resolution has probably made it much easier for manufacturers like HTC to simply slap WP onto existing Android handsets. The rumoured features for WP 8.1 Update One such as support for flip covers makes even more sense considering HTC has a neat Dot Cover for the One (M8) that its WP sibling will soon be able to take advantage of.

TGB have managed to get some brand new Nokia Qi-Wireless Charging plate, some Nokia  Headsets and also now I am trying to get some free Windows Phone Store Vouchers to help you to kickstart your Lumia 930 journey.  Once I can tabulate the items, I will put up a list here.  So here are more reasons for you to buy your NOKIA Lumia 930 earlier yah?

(ps. TGB thinks that the Matt Black is an awesome colour for the Lumia 930.)

With sheer determination comes 03 new devices for TheGeekyBeng

HUAT AH!

Yup, TheGeekyBeng is proud to announce that he has managed to get his hands on both XiaoMi RedMi Note and XiaoMi RedMi 1S in today’s Flash Sales at http://www.mi.com/sg .

With pure strategy and determination, one can easily outwit the rest of the buyers and lay his hands on the desired gadgets within literally a second of sale.  TGB actually got the device at 12:00:05secs.

And what’s the 3rd device that is coming to TGB this week?

Enough Said.  TGB has dropped enough hints.

Stay tuned on Friday morning for a full run-down on the super awesome Nokia Lumia 930!

And now it is official, TGB is all set for Europe in three weeks time.

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.

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.

Nokia Lumia 930 – scheduled for release in Asia soon?

According to very reliable sources, the Nokia Lumia 930 is schedule for release soon in Asia market, with TGB’s home country Singapore expected launch to be towards the end-of-June 2014.

Of course, just a few minutes ago, WPCentral have reported that Nokia Lumia 930 is available for Pre-Orders across major Europe markets at a very much reduced price.

The Lumia 930 sports a brilliant 5″ ClearBlack Display with 1080p resolution armed with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon Processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB Storage Space – downside, no expandable memory.

And this is the official first WP8.1 device on the market … so die die must get!

Of course, the superb camera, sports the Carl Zeiss len and a 20MP OIS Enabled Dual LED Flash with the signature Nokia Camera software that is you know, most camera phone’s nightmare.

TGB is praying hard for an Orange set to come to him very soon!

But before the arrival of Lumia 930, TGB will be getting his hands on an equally big device … this Thurs.

Can anyone guess what it is?  Let me give you a hint, its another Nokia.
