The PC Fair is starting tomorrow in KL at the KL Convention Centre. HTC will again show its dominant presence at this event. Leading the HTC charge is obviously the Diamond, the latest in the pack of HTC’s family of devices available in Malaysia. Word has it that there doesn’t seem to be any spectacular special packages during this PC Fair. Hmm is the PC Fair losing its lustre?
Here are the special PC Fair prices for the HTC Diamond and the Samsung Omnia i900. Remember, you read it HERE FIRST! This is breaking news now but it’ll be old tomorrow when PC Fair opens. Welcome to the Internet age news. Read on!
The HTC Diamond is now at RM2,799 with a bluetooth headset. There will be a challenge from Samsung Omnia i900 for early birds. You can man-handle the device at PC Fair.
The Omnia will be introduced at RM2,999 for 16GB and RM2,799 for 8GB. There will be a bundle of an exclusive Omnia pouch, an Omnia photo frame and a screen protector FREE. Incidently, the photo frame is what it is, a frame around the Omnia where you can put it on slideshow mode and it holds the Omnia snuggly. If you pay now, you will be the FIRST people to receive it when the physical shipment arrives next week.
You will have a good time deciding between the 8GB and 16GB over the Diamond. Many of you will want to fork out the difference to go all the way with the Omnia 16GB. This is the top-of-the-range for a Windows Mobile device and looking closer to an iPhone too.
The market will be quite interesting for the next month (August) before the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 makes its entry into the Malaysia market sometime in September.
I’m sure the PDA Phone market will continue to be an HTC vs Samsung dominance for the Windows Mobile device market. I look forward to the Sony Ericsson’s entry to give them a good fight which means variety for all users.
So if you are free the next 3 days, head over by foot, LRT or car (good luck to you drivers!) to KL Convention Centre and check out HTC and Samsung booths for the HTC Diamond and the Samsung Omnia i900.
Before I forget, if your budget is smaller than these elite models, the slightly less current models of HTC Touch Dual and the Samsung i780 are both worthy devices for your consideration still. And they are here at the PC Fair!
