The long awaited Yes 4G postpaid plan was finally launched today! Before this, there were only pay-as-you-go prepaid plans being offered since their official launch in November 2010.
The official Yes 4G postpaid plans are :-
- Super 48 – RM48/month, 1.5GB data
- Super 68 – RM68/month, 4GB data
- Super 98 – RM98/month, 6GB data
- Super 168 – RM168/month, 10GB data
The network speed of all postpaid plans is uncapped so you may enjoy up to 20Mbps! Besides, the postpaid line won’t be barred and no extra charges will incur if the monthly data quota is exceeded but the network speed will be reduced. No exact figure on what the throttled speed will be though. Will update again once I get the information about it.
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone who are celebrating it!

Online backup has gained its popularity and is becoming one of the emerging online services in recent years. There are plenty of online backup services available on the Internet and many of them are different in terms of features and pricing. Some are offering unlimited online storage space while others are offering a more attractive pricing.
An online backup review site at wpdesigner.com put up a chart listing some of the selected online backup services based on the credibility and the reputation of the companies. All important features of each online backup service are listed for reference such as the price, server security, trial period, money back guarantee, control panel, customer support and so on. This chart is definitely useful for people who are looking for an online backup service but don’t know where to search for them.
Nokia Maps, formerly known as Ovi Maps, is always my favorite turn-by-turn voice guided GPS navigation application on a mobile phone. I’ve been using it on Nokia N97, N900 & N8 and it served me well in many countries that I’ve been throughout the years. Nokia decided to split Nokia Maps into 2 separate apps in MeeGo and Windows Phone platform. Therefore, we now have 2 map navigation apps in Nokia N9 and all Nokia Lumia Windows Phones :-
- Nokia Maps (full featured maps navigation with local POI, pin destination, etc.)
- Nokia Drive (turn-by-turn navigation with voice guidance, optimized for driving)
Well, two is always better than one.
So far Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive are free and exclusive for Nokia devices only but soon it will be available as paid apps for other phones running Windows Phones 7.5. I’ve been longing to run these 2 apps on my phones of other brands and the hope finally came true when I managed to run it on my LG Windows Phone.
I’ll only cover Nokia Drive in this post and perhaps if I have time I’ll write about Nokia Maps as well in another upcoming post.
Nokia Drive supports both portrait and landscape modes. The user interface is optimized with bigger font and buttons for the use while driving. Nokia Drive includes 2D and 3D maps across 95 countries and maps can be easily downloaded via WiFi or data network and stored on the device. Navigation voice of different languages can be installed as well.

Two phones chose this special day today 11/11/11 to officially launch in Malaysia, one is Samsung Galaxy Note and the other is the long anticipated new Motorola RAZR. RAZRTM is the most well-known model of all Motorola mobile phones in the history and they are using the same name for this latest smartphone that is impossibly thin, lightweight, fast, and tough! I believe the legendary name RAZR is suitable for this new phone as it features some incredible specifications and the price is only RM1,999!
Below are some facts of Motorola RAZR :-
- Dual-core 1.2GHz processor
- 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage (supports up to optional 32GB microSD)
- Display protected by scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass
- Back cover encased in laser-cut KEVLAR fiber
- Splash-guard coating shields (splash resistant)
