Omnia Latest Prices – October 2008


Since the Omnia was launched, there has been much interest on this device.  Please don’t be alarmed that it heats up a bit during intense usage or even during the charging phase.  It’s normal for all PDA devices.

For the Omnia, it has given many new Phone-to-PDA converts a grand time.  Although there may be complaints that the screen color resolution could be better, that’s for us to wait for the next model.

Omnia Prices Coming Down So Soon?


Now available in Malaysia

In my earlier posting of the Omnia (read here), I had predicted the 16GB model to be at RM2,500 and the 8GB model at RM2,300.  It was my wish that the price for the 8GB model would dip below RM2,000.

When it was launched (also previewed at PC Fair earlier this month), the 16GB had a retail price of RM2,999 and the 8GB at RM2,799.  That was merely a brief 2 weeks ago.

Sony Ericsson X1 – A Strip Tease in Parts (1)


The new and yet to be released Sony Ericsson X1 is building new momentum of ardent followers.  The first Windows Mobile device in the Sony Ericsson family, I’m sure their trademark of having a great camera, music walkman and excellent consumer designs will be retained by them.

The new and exciting X1

Many who have seen the online pictures are captivated by the marketing flair and my view is for such excitement to be taken with a pinch of salt.  The photography has made many salivate when looking at the new X1.  Experience tells me that the real thing may look and feel quite different.

Anyway, this posting is to let you know that I may soon lay my hands on a pre-engineering set of the X1.  I’ll share my thoughts with you as I unveil what we can all expect of the X1 over the coming weeks.

Certainly, Sony Ericsson will want to exceed the expectations of the P series of PDA phone products and the X1 is poised to take the throne for the king of the line for now.

Stay tuned for more X1 news here!  And the news will pertain mostly to our Malaysian market.  I intend to do a strip tease of X1 here, little by little. 😉

exhibition area as well as at the Samsung booth on the 3rd floor.

Of course, the Omnia price was as predicted (read here) and there were no stocks until next week (my prediction again!).  I wonder if there were any takers for paying up to book the first Omnia arriving in Malaysia.  There should be a press launch by Samsung for the Omnia next week.
