At Last, Malaysia iPhone 4 is Here On September 24th!

MALAYSIA: The rumor has been confirmed. Malaysia telcos, both Maxis and DiGi, to launch Apple iPhone 4 on 24th September 2010.

Maxis iPhone 4 launch event

Maxis has already announced the iPhone 4 launch events and iPhone 4 plans on its website.

The pre-launch event starts at 23rd’s night. Then, it is the midnight launch event at 12am(OMG!). The day launch event is at 24th & 25th. All launch events held at The Gardens Hotel & Residences, Mid Valley City.

I wonder how many Apple fans will be there, in the midnight, for iPhone 4. I have been invited as media to the midnight launch event but I cannot make it.

Too bad, there’s “Maxis iPhone 4 Media Offer”(read: discount!) for the media who attends the event.

How about DiGi iPhone 4?

While DiGi still keep their iPhone 4 plans as a secret, they published an interesting photo on Facebook fan page to hint the iPhone 4 launch date.

What do you think this means? For me, it is “Apple iPhone 4 shipping on 24 September 2010 from DiGi”.

However, on DiGi iPhone 4 website, there is no information about launch date nor DiGi iPhone 4 plans. Perhaps they want to drop a “bomb” (read: very good deal) during Maxis iPhone 4 launch?

Buying advice

I would suggest you wait for both telcos to reveal their iPhone 4 plans and compare them to pick the best for yourself.

Don’t rush to be the 1st iPhone 4 owner in Malaysia. (Well, there are already MANY Malaysians using iPhone 4 now. :P )

iPhone OS 4: What Everybody Ought to Know About

Apple iPhone OS 4

Apple has announced the iPhone OS 4, the newest mobile operating system for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The iPhone OS 4 has over 100 new user features and 1500 new APIs for developers.

What should you know about iPhone OS 4? Here are the features highlights of iPhone OS 4:

Multitasking, sort of

Yes, finally, iPhone OS supports multitasking! The feature allows you to run multiple apps at the same time and easily switch among them.

However, in order to reduce consumption of system resources, the background processes are limited to 7 classes: music, VOIP (read: Skype), GPS, Push notification, Local notification, and Fast app switching.

Don’t expect the multitasking works like you have on your computer.

Folders

Now you can group iPhone apps together into a folder. Example: put all game apps into a game folder. Folder name is auto generated but you can rename it. You can also change the wallpaper of the iPhone folder.

Better Mail app

Mail for iPhone now use unified inbox so that you can have multiple email accounts delivered into one inbox. Thread messages is integrated.Open email attachments in third-party app. Also, iPhone OS 4 now support multiple Exchange accounts.

iBooks

Similar to the iBooks on iPad but a smaller version. Support wireless page and notes syncing.
