It'll also come bundled with an 8GB microSD card, and preloaded with exclusive content such as Kjwan’s highly-awaited album “13 Seconds to Love” and access to downloadable content from Universal Music and Nokia Indie Artists Club. While the SRP isn’t available just yet, we hear that it’s around the P20K mark and is expected to become available in the early part of January 2009. Sure, the recently announced N97 will make you think twice before pre-ordering the 5800 XpressMusic, but considering that the N97 is filled to the brim with features, it means that it’ll likewise come with a heftier price tag that's well above the P35K mark. Similarly, you could make a case that the LG Cookie is way more affordable, but then again, the 5800 XpressMusic is definitely far more superior in terms of feature set.

Starting yesterday, Ynzal has put all of their items, ranging from Mac systems and iPods to 3rd party peripherals and accessories, on sale.

According to MobileWhack, the 3G iPhone is set to be released in 42 more countries and that includes us, the Philippines. August 22 is the D-Day for all you iPhone-atics out who have been on the edge of their seat waiting for the local release. Though I’m quite happy about this bit of info, I’m still a bit skeptical with this one since original only 22 countries where slated for the release. It was only during a quarterly conference that the additional 20 more countries where announced though no specifics were given according to Macworld. You also need to take into consideration the local buzz that's leaning towards a September release date, not August. There's also Apple’s inability to cope with the demand that has left many would-be buyers frustrated over the fact that they’re unable to purchase one even in the motherland of the iPhone, the USA of all places. What more in other countries? Anyway, it’s still a shade under a month away and I guess that’s enough time for more news to leak out regarding its inevitable local debut. Keep your fingers crossed and stayed tuned guys. The countdown is about to begin.
With the start of a brand new year, we usually come to terms with letting go of the past and looking forward to a fresh new start. I guess this is the same scenario with those who managed to stay loyal with the original rival of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, the Netscape Navigator. It was first commercially launched back in October 1994 and is set to be laid to rest on February 1, 2008. According to Tom Drapeau, Director of AOL/Netscape development, most of their current efforts are now aimed at creating a Firefox browser with the appearance and feel of the Navigator. Forced out of business due to poor market performance against Internet Explorer (and other browsers), version 9 will be the last iteration of one the forefathers in internet browser history. Support will cease to run on February 1, 2008. Thank you Netscape for providing us with an alternative to the Microsoft Internet Explorer back in the days, your efforts did not go to waste.
