What’s the point of a very fast network without anyone being able to log on to it?

Well, SingTel’s zippy 300Mbps mobile broadband service using the Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) network technology now has a Huawei mobile router that hooks up users on the go.

Hailed as a “world first”, SingTel’s commercial launch of the enhanced 4G service yesterday came with Huawei’s E5786 mobile MiFi device, which creates a mobile hotspot to hook up phones, laptops and other devices.

Nokia-Lumia-930-Photo1

The Nokia Lumia 930 is the first mobile device to be out after Microsoft’s confirmed purchase of the Finnish cellphone maker in April this year.

Inevitably, all eyes are on it. Big question is whether it can change the game for Microsoft, which has been lagging in the smartphone game.

For frequent runners who like music on the go, one thing that has been missing is a sturdy pair of Bluetooth earphones to go with a smartphone or iPod. The Jabra Rox Wireless, released here in April, probably comes closest to fitting the bill.

At S$169, the R6i commands a premium over many in-ear headphones available in the market today. Small wonder when you realise this is a Klipsch product, a company known mostly for producing premium gear for audiophiles.

The growing popularity of smartphones as portable gaming powerhouses has led to tough times for handheld consoles like the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo DS. Today, you can find a wide range of accessories meant to recreate the console gaming experience on a phone.

A Kickstarter-funded game controller from Hong Kong-based Phonejoy Solutions, the Phonejoy is one such accessory. It supports both iOS and Android devices as long as you download a companion app from the respective app stores.

I had heard of Fiio’s well-regarded and nicely-priced X3 player for a while now, but nothing quite prepared me for the surprisingly good audio that comes out of this portable player until I heard it for myself in the past week.
