I’m Reviewing the iPhone 4, Thanks to Maxis!
I was at the tail end of an important meeting in Jakarta when a phone call came in informing me that I was selected to review the iPhone 4, thanks to the Maxis10 Reviewers Programme. I think my guarded response to the congratulatory message wasn’t something April (the lady that called up) was looking for, but if your client is just across the table with several other vendors in the room, you’d probably adopt the same tone as well.
Anyways, a little background on Maxis. It’s one of the major mobile phone telecommunications providers in Malaysia, and the first to bring in the iPhone to Malaysia, starting with the iPhone 3G. The Maxis10 Reviewers Programme, quoting its Facebook Tab, is about independent voices giving their free, fair and unbiased reviews of the latest technologies and devices from Maxis.
Since the Maxis10 reviewers for the iPhone 4 have already been announced on Twitter, I guess it’s safe to talk about it right before the launch event. I’m pretty stoked at being given this opportunity. So what do I really want to check out about the iPhone 4? Lets see, there’s that HDR functionality, Retina Display, Face Time and yes..that A4 processor. And I’m going to compare it with my iPhone 3GS, and that relic, the original iPhone. I wonder how Dodonpachi holds up on the iPhone 4.
Want to find out more? Stay tuned to nineoverten.com. I’ll be getting the phone tomorrow at the launch event at the Gardens Midvalley tomorrow night (it’s a really good thing that I’m flying back to Malaysia tonight). In the mean time, it’s back to clearing up that “iPhone games to review” backlog.
