ASUS showcases 12 new products in Singapore for 2014

In its main product launch for 2014 in Singapore, ASUS launched a slew of 12 new business, consumer and gaming products – including the Transformer Book T300 Chi, ROG G751 and ZenWatch.

Many of the devices were first unveiled during IFA 2014 in early September, the highlight of which was the ZenWatch – the company’s first wearable device.

It will be available in Singapore for S$299 from end of 2014.

Another significant milestone is the unveiling of devices incorporating the latest Intel Core M processor, also unveiled during IFA 2014 – the Transformer Book T300 Chi is one of the earliest off the block to ship with the new chip.

The new Core M, which enables razor-thin, energy-efficient, fanless designs for 2-in-1 devices must have played a large part in making the Transformer Book T300 Chi the world’s slimmest 12.5-inch detachable 2-in-1 tablet.

I was wondering how well Intel has penetrated the mobile market.

Here are some quick updates from Jonathan Ong, Area Sales Manager of Intel Singapore & Malaysia.

POTD: St Peter’s Abbey – where Mozart played and conducted

Photo of the Day: St Peter’s Abbey is a Benedictine monastery next to the Salzurger Dom in Salzburg, Austria. It is one of the oldest monasteries in the German-speaking world.

* All photos in this article were taken with a Sony A7 full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, with Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS full-frame E-mount zoom lens. Photo credit: John Tan.

The light within the Abbey was rather dim and I didn’t want to use any flash – so it was a good opportunity to put the reputed low-light prowess of the Sony A7 to the test.

The full-frame camera did not disappoint, as the pictures in this article were all taken at relatively high ISO values and turned out well.

Review: LG G3 Android KitKat smartphone with QHD display

Following the success of its well-received LG G2, I like the large stunning QHD display of the LG G3 and totally enjoyed using flagship smartphone over the past few weeks.

The LG G3 is one of the best smartphones that I’ve used that are currently on the market. Fast and smooth, with great display and excellent camera.
