Nokia held a preview session for Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in Malaysia and I had the chance to experience these 2 latest Nokia smartphones running Windows Phone 8 operating system.
The new Nokia LUmia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 will be retailing for RM1,999 and RM1,599 respectively at Nokia Store nationwide starting today. While these 2 phones may arrive just in time for Christmas and New Year, the accessories such as wireless charging plate will only be available in January 2013. Anyway, local mobile operators Digi and Celcom will carry the phones while Maxis is expecting to join soon and they all will announce their pricing separately.
Nokia Lumia 920 & Nokia Lumia 820 Preview Session
It’s not surprising the Nokia Lumia 920 sold out in many countries during its launch. Physically, it is a beauty with rounded edges, a smooth glass finishing and seamless polycarbonate body. It boasts a 4.5” PureMotion HD+ display with ClearBlack technology and is the world’s brightest, fastest and most sensitive touchscreen. It also comes with Nokia’s signature PureView imaging technology and Carl Zeiss optics for the ultimate smartphone camera experience. With Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a revolutionary floating lens built in taking a clear picture and video is so easy, even in low light conditions and holding it with one hand.

I was invited to UPS (Uniterrrupted Power Supply) Storm Season – Product Showcase Event by Schneider Electric IT Business Malaysia early this month to share my personal experience with UPS at home and workplace. During the event, a few latest UPS models were showcased including APC Back-UPS Pro (BR900GI) in the Back-UPS lineup which is ideal for home offices and SOHOs. Another UPS model was used in the demonstration is the APC Smart UPS On-Line system, that is designed as power protection solution for servers, voice/data networks, medical labs, and light industrial applications in Small Medium Enterprises (SME).

John Atherton, Malaysia IT Business Vice President of Schneider Electric, mentioned at the event that We live in a country that is ranked 5th in the world in terms of lightning density, Kuala Lumpur experiences an average-thunder day level between 180-300 days per year. Our work, leisure, healthcare, economy, and livelihood depend highly on a constant supply of electrical power. Even a temporary stoppage of power can lead to chaos, monetary setbacks, and possible loss of life. The APC Back-UPS Pro (BR900GI) offers homes and business owners guaranteed power protection for high performance computer systems, routers/modems, external storage devices, gaming consoles and other electronics.
Just right after the launch of Windows 8 at the end of last month, Logitech released a new lineup of products designed for easy and intuitive navigation of Windows 8 in the Malaysian market. One of the new Logitech products is this Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 that features a glass touch surface that is designed for smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling with your fingers.
As you might have already known, Windows 8 has a beautiful new user interface designed specifically for touch screens but many Windows 8 users don’t have a touchscreen desktop monitor. Therefore, Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 could be the right mouse for simple and easy navigation in Windows 8. Anyway, the mouse is compatible with Windows 7 and it works in a similar way in Windows 7 too.
