iOS 5.1 available over the air now

Yupz, the new iOS 5.1 is available today via OTA! However do keep in mind that you may experience issues with its download. If you get an error message just keep trying or leave it for tomorrow as the Apple servers are probably having trouble coping with the high initial demand.

iOS 5.1 Changelog

  • SIRI support Japan language.
  • Enable to delete photos from Photo Stream in iCloud.
  • The lockscreen camera shortcut is now constantly visible on the lockscreen.


The New iPad Officially launch!

UPDATED : The New iPad is official name!

Watching Apple LIVE now for the new iPad (they even don't have name for it, lets call it The iPad now) announcement. It just a minor update in iPad 2.

The New iPad Key Features :

  • 9.7-inch Retina Display, 2048 x 1536 pixel with 264ppi.
  • A5X processor and quad-core graphics chip.
  • 5MP Camera with 1080p HD Video Recording.
  • built-in 4G LTE.
  • 9.4mm thickness.
  • 1.4lbs.
  • 10 hours of battery life still. 9 hours on 4G.
  • iOS 5.1

There are still alot uncertain spec in The iPad. What are the RAM? What are the battery capacity? What are the front camera MP? Plus, The iPad still come with physical home button. There won't be SIRI in the new iPad too.

Honestly we are pretty disappointed with The iPad. No quad core, quad graphic (which theyc laim better than Tegra 3). Same camera can be found in iPhone 4S except 5MP. There will be microphone built-in in the keyboard, Android Google Voice anyone? There will be personal hotspot available too in The iPad.

Overall, it is everything you can found in iPhone 4S into The iPad. The new iPad will be available March 16th, starting at $499 for the 16GB WiFi model and scaling up to $829 for the 64GB version with 4G. Same price with current iPad 2 and of course, iPad 2 are dropping their price. Malaysia won't be first batch to have it yet.

So, the new iPad anyone?

Samsung launch budget Android - Galaxy Pocket

Samsung just announced a budget Android line, Galaxy Pocket.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Key Features :

  • 2.8" QVGA LCD.
  • 832 MHz CPU.
  • 2 megapixel fixed focus camera.
  • 3GB internal memory with microSD slot.

Well, more cheap Android, easier and affordable to consumer. However we wonder how many line/Galaxy series Samsung intend to dominate based on screen size.

Digi Fandroid Day - The Recap

Yesh, the live blogging is a success. This is the first time Dygadget tried to live blog an event. With both the founder and co-author, the Digi Fandroid life blog can be found HERE.

However, the blog post doesn't stop after the event finishes. We are here to make a recap of the event with better photo and descriptions.

We were early because we are afraid of possible jam in Federal highway when on the way to Shah Alam.

D'House Event Tag

Did I(we) mentioned the good ppl from Digi has a table of latest Samsung devices for us to try on?

Not to mentions tea time.

The event didn't start on time. This is Mark, the MC.

Leads the ice-breaking by introducing ninja slice group game.

The winners get a packet of Kit-Kat each. Best part, those winners are willing to spare some Kit Kats to us too ^_^

Next, comes with a speech from SulinLau, head of marketing department to talk about the Digi's future network. 

According to her, Digi is preparing themselves for LTE network.

Next, we have James from Google Malaysia to talk about some features in Android, such as Google goggle, ICS etc.

While Leonard from Samsung "showoff" some of the latest product from his pants. Sounds misleading right? XD Ok, the spetators knows what I mean...

Before the session end, the winner from the twitting competition wins herself a Samsung Galaxy SII.

Before we have our lunch, Digi staff take us to a short tour around D'house.

The waterfall granite that has been turn off for the weekend.

You may know Digi promotes greener ways to deal with things, but do you know D'house is full with these features too? Glasses, stairs, garden, treated water etc.

They maximize the intensity of the sun light to the building to decrease the power consumption on ligh bulbs. Oppsy, I mean the energy saving one.

And the Digi person we talked to, where you always scoled (did you? XP). Welcome to CS

There are more features in D'house that I wish to share, but isn't it nice if you have chance to go there yourself once in a life time? I wouldn't want to ruin your surprise faces when you tour D'house yourself.
