Hands-on: Lenovo’s Yoga 2 Pro to make its debut at SITEX for S$1,899

Yoga 2 Pro

PC makers have been pumping out new devices powered by Intel’s latest Haswell processors, so it’s about time we saw a hardware refresh for Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 13, one of the most interesting Windows 8 convertibles launched more than a year ago.

The new Yoga 2 Pro will be launched at this year’s SITEX IT bazaar, and Lenovo has certainly upped the ante here, as we’re looking at more than just a processor bump.

Nokia Lumia 925

When the Lumia 925 was first unveiled, it seemed that Nokia has finally heard my pansy complaints that the Lumia 920 could do with some weight-loss training.

At 8.5mm thick and 139g heavy, the Lumia 925 is indeed thinner and much lighter. However, I wasn’t immediately attracted to the way it looks compared to the striking polycarbonate uni-bodies of previous Lumias.

So how did the smartphone hold up after two weeks of use? Let’s find out.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

One of Lenovo’s most hotly-anticipated ThinkPads ever announced will finally make its first retail appearance in Singapore at the PC show this Thursday.

First announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, the ThinkPad Helix is the first ever ThinkPad to come in the tablet plus keyboard dock form factor. And with a starting price of S$2,199, it’s probably the most expensive convertible we’ve seen so far.

So what does the Helix offer with that high sticker price?

When Adobe launched its Creative Cloud offerings to creative professionals in Singapore, it was clear to observers that the software subscription service would be Adobe’s main focus from then on. However, few expected Adobe to scrap its perpetual license offerings entirely and go all-in with Creative Cloud.

But that is exactly what Adobe has announced on Tuesday: the existing Creative Suite 6 will be the last of its kind, and all production software from Adobe will henceforth be issued under the broad Creative Cloud moniker.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

Of all the ultrabooks designed to take on Apple’s MacBook Air, few were as stunning as the ThinkPad Carbon X1, which combined the ThinkPad’s classic design with modern speedy chips and a super thin body.

Lenovo is back at it once more with the newest iteration of the X1, this time with a 10-point multi-touch screen that enables users to take advantage of Windows 8′s touch-friendly UI.

Synrgic Uno

Folks looking for their next smartphone running stock Android may be surprised to find themselves looking no further than Singapore, where local firm Synrgic on Tuesday unveiled the Uno, their new mid-range smartphone.

Sporting a sleek, umber-coloured exterior, the Uno — which means “one” in Spanish or Italian — is completely designed and developed in the Singapore. And instead of mass-producing the smartphone in China, as most brands are wont to do, the Uno will be manufactured in South Korea “to get the best quality”, according to Synrgic CEO Cheo Suan Jin.

Hands-on: Canon goes small with the 100D

Canon 100D

How many ways can you make a DSLR?

For Canon, the latest gimmick is going small with one of its latest cameras, the 100D.

The 100D is a decidedly entry-level camera. It has the same 18-megapixel sensor as the existing 650D and the new 700D, and in burst mode shoots only 4 frames per second.

Up by Jawbone

Smart watches were not the only wearable tech that drew eyes during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year. As chips and sensors continue to shrink, a new category of personal fitness tech is emerging in the form of wristband-style gadgets.

These devices are supposed to be worn around the clock so that your every activity can be tracked, even when you’re sleeping. The idea behind it is simple: the more data about you can obtain about how you live, the better you’ll be able to make decisions that directly affect your health, such as getting more sleep or eating the right food.

Microsoft confirms Singapore pricing for Office 365, pushes for subscriptions

30 Jan


Microsoft is selling its new Office software for S$138 a year, or S$11.50 a month, to home users  in Singapore, as part of a new subscription service that it hopes will change its fortunes against Google and Apple this year.

Available today, that offer gives users five licences, which means they can install Office on multiple devices at home, including PCs and Macs.
