Short Talk:

Blog Plug of the Day: Cheesie is so fascinated with Blythe dolls, she photoshopped my picture and turned me into a Chihuahua instead.

kennysia.com on iPhone

OH.

MY.

FREAKING.

GAWD.

It's an iPod!

A phone!

An internet communications device!

kennysia.com never looked so good on a phone.

Well, technically it's not a phone yet. Because some dude at Apple think its so smart to hold the phone hostage until you sign some 2-year plan with an American service provider. Everything else works fine though.

This is the same phone that people lined up for hours in front of the Apple store on the day of its launch. But thanks to the good guys at IT Fusion in Kuching, I managed to get my hands on an actual Apple iPhone, months before its official release in Malaysia.

Google Maps on iPhone. Anyone knows which location this is in Kuching? ;)

My eyes literally lit up when the boss said to me, "Take your time to do the review. Just return it to us when you get tired of it."

Thanks Moorey. Problem is, I don't even know when I'm gonna get tired of playing with the iPhone!

Watching a video on the touch-screen iPod.

Everything is so beautifully implemented. Even without the phone feature, the WiFi websurfing and iPod feature is enough to blow me completely away.

I almost needed a fresh pair of pants to complete this review.

The graphic is crisp. The usage is intuitive. The touchscreen is responsive. Its addictive just running through all the functions.

I gotta say, using the iPhone is the second longest workout my fingers had gone through.

Yeah baby, so I got the iPhone now.

Who wants to touch me?

Unregistered

Oh my god Kenny you're so cool! Rise above the common masses with your iphone it's your destiny! Sweep arise the riff-raff & rabble!

I took my unlocked iphone back to KK and owned all of those N95 wielding wannabes too!

Unregistered

so jealous ler...

Unregistered

but i heard the iphone can't take video with the camera right? :(

please tell me its sooo not true!

Unregistered

but still you are a lucky dog (Chihuahua) :P

Unregistered

the place in google map is showing the civic center am i right?
Anyway, can't wait for ur review on the iphone.

Unregistered

"Who wants to touch me?"

Khairy Jamaluddin?

Unregistered

OMG! Kenny sia.. You so mean... >:(

Why do you get to hold it first. *jealous*

I wonder when is the date that they are going to release this phone in malaysia. I just can't wait!

Unregistered

Oh man, I was hoping that your next blog post was Cheesie's meme. :D

Can't wait to see you iDollize yourself. :P

Unregistered

I cant imagine what will happen to it if you drop it on concrete ground.

Care to do a shock test?

Unregistered

Oh my gawd.... Thats such an ORGASMIC phone!! By looking at it jus brings climax...but by touchin will definitely bring it way beyond climaxing!! hahaha!! the iPhone...with so many features...no wonder the battery last only 20mins =p hehehe..

Unregistered

lucky bastard...
so when are u going to tell us that u nail an international model?
hah joking.

Unregistered

it's not even 3G, it's not even the first phone that does mp3s. just cos' it's apple doesn't mean it's magic? and alex, you must be aware that the n95 owns the iphone in terms of specifications? i despise ignorants who think the newest is flashest. know your facts before you 'piaw yen'!

great fashion phone nevertheless, very innovative.

anyways cool that you have a preview of it, kenny.

Unregistered

Hey dude, my customer brought in a few for testing the day after the official release. Expecting accessories on the market soon.

Unregistered

Nokia N95 is better.

Unregistered

Damn!! it's an IPhone...I couldn't believe that you get a hold on that thingy..So, are they make you a model?..

Unregistered

Damn!! it's an IPhone...I couldn't believe that you get a hold on that thingy..So, are they make you a model?..

Unregistered

OMG

OMG

OMG

OMG

OMG

OMG

go die kenny

Unregistered

check out HTC Touch P3450 ... iPhone sucks!

Unregistered

Some people are just so lucky...

Unregistered

I know my damn facts nocturnal. Better specs doesn't mean that the N95 has the lucrative properties the Iphone has due to its non release state. Seen one N95 seen em all.

Think, would people look at N95 they can find at just about any store or the Iphone that currently maintains its exclusivity.

You are guilty of "piao yen" by thinking that specs are the only "facts".

Unregistered

People... it is just a device. Once you finish paying for this device, you will want something else because it becomes a thing of the past. :P

Unregistered

Looking forward to your review then, hopefully it's a funny one.

加油加油!

P.S: What if you spoil it? Will the boss ask you to pay for it? :p

Unregistered

may i ask how much is it? or how much will it cost? do you know? =)

Unregistered

The iPhone (this one that KennySia has) would reach Malaysian shores probably end of 1Q 2008.

I would say, wait for iPhone V2 instead. iPhone V1 (this one that Kennysia has) is still lacking certain features.

Unregistered

Can you use it to send calls? Coz i know the IPhone requires activation and for now it can only be used with AT&T. Notice the "No Service" signal?

Unregistered

O_________O!!!

Dun wash hand I tell u...
I wanna touch ur hand....
I love iphone and can't wait to get one for myself leh!!!!!!!

Envy u!! Hate u!!

Unregistered

Can u used it without the service? so the internet is just wireless?

Unregistered

how much does an iPhone cost?

Unregistered

I bring you Maddox; http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=iphone

And seriously, people are whipping themselves into a frenzy for an overhyped smartphone. Yes it looks cool and the touch screen is nifty, but really, c'mon, snap out of the god damn marketing driven wankfest already. Its not even doing anything particularly groundbreaking. "Holy shits! Internet Communications Device!!! *orgasm*" LoL

Unregistered

can i be your mistress ?

Unregistered

Very very nice phone! :)

Unregistered

OMGGGGGGGGG!!!!!! I HATEEEEEEEEEE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!! & YOu NEVER TOLD ME ABOUT THIS?!!!!

Unregistered

aauuuuu.... it is so awesomely cool!! i wonder how much is it?

Unregistered

n95 sucks without the touch screen. it's stupid to surf the net without it. screw n95!

Unregistered

Wow kuching got their hands on iphone quite slow but its cool. Touchscreen ftw

Unregistered

Wait til AT&T send you the 300 pages of bills. Tat's really cool. Heard of iRack?

Unregistered

the screen is soooooooo clear...u can leave behind your specs...or contact lense

Unregistered

i have the iphone since last month :)

Unregistered

can i touch ur phone instead? =P

Unregistered

hey kenny...question. if in US, the iphone's tied to AT&T, who's it gonna be tied to here?

is it even gonna be tied to in the first place, or they gonna make it so it's available on all malaysian networks? any updates on that?

Unregistered

check this out... unlocked iphone?

Unregistered

http://www.previewgadgets.com/gadget/finally-unlocked-iphone-now-in-hong-kong-soon-whole-world/

maybe you want to try this and post a review of how the phone functions work.

Unregistered

kenny, anyway to win the phone through your blog yet? haha.

Unregistered

Hahaha kenny, this is the first time I actually write something here. Yeah, that day I saw you walked out from my office after you kidnap my boss cute little iphone. And you got all my songs and video erase!!! Grrrrr.... but anyway, you did a great review once again. Long live Apple! Long Live iPhone! Long live Kenny???

Unregistered

Wow! Just wow! I'm still gonna wait for it to be officially released here in Malaysia before I think of even getting it. Sigh, would wanna hold one though just to get a feel for it...

Unregistered

i like 爱phone better.

Unregistered

the unlocked iphone is selling at hkd15k

Unregistered

A phone that is not a phone? That's like a pub with no beer.

Unregistered

oh crap. you're damn lucky -__-

Unregistered

hehehe, Kennysia, I touched the iPhone before you..nyek nyek nyek.. hehe

But it truly is a cool gadget, im definately having one when its launched here.. :)

Unregistered

ZOMGWTHGGTTYLBBQ

wasai wasai

Unregistered

Yeah, UI is so damn cool, wish others jus spend as much as Apple to get d UI THIS good! but specs wise? Sorry, according to some review, iPhone has variable call quality n lacks some basic features found in many mobile phones, no stereo Bluetooth support and no 3G. Integrated memory is stingy for an iPod, and u hv to sync d iPhone to manage music content. n I think I read somewhere tat someone is complaining to Apple tat he cant change d battery (for watever reason).. it's a sealed-in battery.. no radio, no recording.. The iPhone's 2-megapixel camera offers a spiffy interface wif a graphic tat resembles a camera shutter. U r offered no camera editing options. That means u cant change d resolution, choose a colour or quality setting, or select a night mode. There's no flash either, and with no self-portrait mirror. U cant (yet) add custom ringtones or even use MP3 ringtones with d massive library of tracks ur iPhone is walking around with, but d default sounds are all pretty good. iPhone is cool, if u dun nid all these specs..

Unregistered

omfg omfg omfg... That phone is even better than the stupid Anya Hindmarch bag!! Waay better!! Damn cool wey!! How much is it??? *drools*

Unregistered

Its really nice! But its so big and bulky!

Unregistered

iPhone look so darn cool! =D~ show more!

Unregistered

lucky fella!

Unregistered

touched a nerve there, i see. you know what i mean, alex. anyways if you got anything to dispute please do so in the cbox, not here in comments. see you, beng.

Unregistered

the map is showing the civic centre area right? i recognise the sarawak club pool.

i want an iPhone, you should put one up for grabs, kenny.

Unregistered

grrr... lucky Kenny :(

Unregistered

OMG Kenny you're so lucky!!!!!!! D: I'm so gonna try and get one. I am.

Unregistered

WAIT A MINUTE!

How come all the pictures shown have a "NO SERVICE" on the top left hand corner of the phone?

How do you surf without putting in a SIM card?

Hmmm.....

Unregistered

DANG YOU!!

but curious.. :P

what was your first longest workout on your fingers?

Unregistered

http://forum.mypdacafe.com/viewtopic.php?t=16642

Unregistered

Unregistered

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT THATTTTTT!!!! WEN WILL IT RELEASED IN MALAYSIA?????????? *i.....can't.........breath*

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

The coolness of the iPhone took a huge nosedive after Khairy got one earlier.

Unregistered

Kenny, you actually look better as an iDoll, for goodness' sake. Muakaka..

Unregistered

wow! lucky u kenny.=)

Unregistered

Maddox disagrees with you. Bwahah.

But I love how the graphics are so goddamn clear, it's orgasmic.

Unregistered

She didn't make you look like a chihuahua la. She made you look like a cute little person.

Unregistered

This Moorey guy .. any chance his other name is Andy?

Unregistered

Unregistered

I WANT!

Unregistered

Unregistered

ooooh pretty! i want!

Unregistered

Gosh, the phone looks great. *jealous*

Unregistered

ITS TOO BIG. I DONT WANT ANOTHER BULGE IN MY PANTS.

KENNY I KNOW WHAT YOU USE YOUR FINGERS FOR.

Unregistered

爱疯了!
爱疯了!
爱疯了!
爱疯了!

Unregistered

I'm more than willing to kill u for that phone...

muahahahaa.....

Unregistered

T_T

Unregistered

Kenny must die.

Unregistered

how much is it ??

Unregistered

juz... do something meaningful...

Unregistered

the iphone is a piece of shit so is ur face. link here http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=iphone

Unregistered

come on, any apple product's overrated!

Unregistered

diao....so geng meh.....

Unregistered

i think dat place is around sarawak club thr.. =)

Unregistered

OH MY FREAKIN GOD.

you're holding the baby!!

i've seen the preview for the phone last year, and damn the intro by apple company really blew me away.

now that YOU're reviewing it, i can see the graphics are really darn clear! with google map! and high resolution! woot!!

there are a number of imitators trying to get there too though. there's HTC's new dopod touch, this Meizu's m8, but let's not get into that. iphone rawks. :)

only hold back, no 3g. argh.

Unregistered

I WANT!I WANT! SO HOW MUCH IT IS!

Unregistered

Wow, so many expletives to utter, so little time. For once, I'm feeling a little gadget envy. You ass. :)

Unregistered

this phone cant sms ya?

Unregistered

Wait, how much is the storage for the iPhone??

Unregistered

Ohmymonkeychickenbananakambingbarbequegoawaythisisnottrue GOD!

u lucky bugger.

Unregistered

I'm going to wait for the iphone v2. The current version of iphone lacks a ton of features (3G, GPS, MMS ... etc) and it takes a couple taps to make a call, can't use mp3 as ringtones, video recording... and the call quality is only fair (mgiht be AT&T issue)

But still though, the iphone is wicked =)

Unregistered

damn...

Unregistered

Hallu :D
My birthday is next week :D
Can I have an iPhone? :D
Pretty pretty please? :D

Unregistered

What about the LG phone you were talking about previously?

Passe already ar?

Unregistered

GAH!! Am soooo jealous!

Unregistered

whoaaa...u got new toy...xD...

Unregistered

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unregistered

Kenny, bet that you must like that phone a lot! Don't tell me you hug it to sleep!!! Hahaha

Unregistered

You're probably the only other Malaysian to have an iPhone, aside the son-in-law:

http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Sunday/Columns/20070708082304/Article/index_html

Unregistered

sweet..thr's 10 of these in spore bought by developers..they said its a total chiq magnet..haha.

Unregistered

I have to masturbate to release my tension just now.

Unregistered

The good guy who owns the apple shop is my cousin...hehe..and i guess that makes me a good person too ^^ i want a discount moorey :)

Unregistered

Die kennysia, die.

Just surrender the iPhone to me before u die.

kthnxbai.

Unregistered

I'd touch you, just to get within reaching distance of that phone, yeeeah! *would nick it off you, watch out* :D

Unregistered

Damn good looking phone that people wanna buy but no 3G or good camera quality.....yet. If only it has 3G and good camera quality, I'd be selling my ass in Chow Kit just so I can buy that phone. Ok, not up to that extend la, but close.

Unregistered

Nokia 3310 is the best!!!

Unregistered

i want the phone! but dont want to touch you...

Unregistered

wow, Kenny~

Unregistered

*envy*

Unregistered

can i use the iphone to shave?

Unregistered

That's Sarawak Club!

It should be made illegal for you to make us all drool over the keyboard for a phone in your blog like this.

Unregistered

wat about its battery? any repalcements?

Unregistered

whoo..

good stuff man.


i like the design.


but sure expensive right?

But how handy is it compared to laptop?


or how efficient compared to laptop when you blog?

Unregistered

actually, apart from its aesthetic factors, there really isnt much to it. Much of its capabilities dont even match up to a standard high end smart phones. IMO, it's just an entertainment device with mobile phone capabilities. To cut it short, my point is, it's a toy, not a working tool.

U want a toy? Get it, and get tired of it's slow processing speed.
U want a working tool? Don't bother.

Unregistered

although N95 Kuat,
BUT iphone brings the WAH! and get u laid.

Unregistered

Whoa! Really OH MY GAWD factor there. Awesome. The graphics look crips and crystal-clear. Jaw droppingly stunning. Congrats.

There's an iPhone website that shows you how to use the phone. It takes 20 minutes to watch it all though - and I don't even have an iPhone. Enjoy.

Unregistered

Can iphone transform into a robot?

Unregistered

I need that now!

Unregistered

Check out iPhone Clone.. the Meizu M8 at: http://www.applematters.com/index.php/section/comments/meizu-m8-vs-apple-iphone/

Unregistered

How Kennysia used the iPhone:
Wireless LAN

No service. Phone is locked to AT&T, but you could use it in Malaysia if you have int'l roaming on your AT&T SIM Card.

I got a free one last month. But I sold it. Tell you the truth, it isn't that good. Only the touchy part is exciting.

Unregistered

after lg comes iphone...what's next?

Unregistered

hmmm? iphone? i'm not impressed by it, and neither am i impressed by most of the behaviour of the people here.

Unregistered

ah google earth doesnt really bring u to anywhere - imho, a 3G phone with GPS features is much better. and any 3G phone can connect to the internet, play mp3 n video, take video/image bla bla...

Unregistered

I cant believe that U got the GPS of Swak club/civic center on Iphone.Must be fake?

Unregistered

3G vs Wifi - I don't even know why anyone wants 3G, it is not available world wide, it is expensive, it is slow, it is unstable and it is 10 years behind schedule. wake up world. Apple always challenge the norm, which is usually wrong, just like windows, it is the norm, any windows based PC would beat the mac flat based on specs. But the world is crumbling because of windows, screwed up UI, screwed up codes, screwed up security, screwed up everything, tried to do a MAC OS x with Vista but failed.

Any idiot who loves 3G just has too much money to spare, why pay them exorbitant changes that either limit your usage or pay very high prices for "unlimited" plans. they are slow, very very slow, and not to mention unstable.

Whereas, wifi is free, it's almost everywhere, and fast, stable, and did i mention free ? I'm not sure about M'sia, but take japan, korea, america for example, almost the whole nation or at least major cities are wifi enabled. with wimax and wibro's development going by leaps and bounds, they will surpass 3G in the next 5 years. 3.5G is barely over 300kbps, wifi has surpassed 100000kbps, i know the speed is limited by the phone's hardware but still the speed is there... the bandwidth is there. service providers have invested too much on 3G so much so that they have no choice but to push us to use 3G.

MP3 - Any phone can play MP3 but can they do it in style and as good as an iPod ? Apple have the know how and have invested millions and have got the UI part right, the quality part right, the touchy touchy part right. N series and the SE walkman series , WALKMAN SERIES KAY, their music player is only , at the most, second grade player which many cheap MP3 player can do better.Don't even get me started on Nokia's player, its clunky, it's ugly & not intelligent.

OS - who can beat apple at OS ? with OS X, the world's most advanced OS for computers, put that in a phone and TADA, world's most beautiful and advance os for phones... 5 years ahead of it's time, 1000000000000 years ahead of WM.......

If it's a smart/business phone , it's gotta be a touch screen, i cannot believe people compare a N95 to an iPhone... try editing an office document on an N95, try scrolling to the hundredth cell box in an excel spreadsheet... try shifting and overlaying images in a powerpoint presentation... try doing that with out touch screen... it would be like using a computers without the mouse. trackpad..... is that what computers have become ? has it suddenly been plunged back into pre 1984 when apple invented the mouse ?????

Touchpad - people who uses onscreen keyboards NOW will errk at that idea. tiny, small and small respond is the achilles' heels of current on screen keyboard. Apple's touchpad is way more advance. utilizing multi touch technology, you'd be able to well multitask, typing more that two keystrokes in a split second, like how you'd type on a normal keyboard :) view the video

omg!! mr sia you touched the iphone!!! walau a, jealous !. i must go touch someday, where can i touch it in penang?

Unregistered

@ avin tan

contrary to your skewed jobs worshipping beliefs, the iphone is not a smartphone, merely a feature phone. one would best classify the iphone as a fashion phone. you can't classify a smartphone by the presence of touchscreen alone. iphone's version of os X is crippled, to describe. functionality wise, it doesn't even hold up to many other cheaper offerings. smartphone? beg your pardon? i could go on and on, but i won't. discussion is welcome, in the cbox.

cheers.

Unregistered

Kenny

why your hand look so fat one ah?

Unregistered

Something serious to know about iphone (dollar termed is in US dollar) -

Quoted: redtape.msnbc.com site: The iPhone battery will only survive about 300-400 recharges, the company says. Because the unit is sealed, consumers can't swap out dead batteries. Instead, dead phones must be sent to Apple, where battery replacement will take three business days and cost $79 plus a $6.95 shipping charge. Those who can't live without their cell phones for those three days can rent a spare iPhone for $29.


You can read the official details on this: http://redtape.msnbc.com/2007/07/why-was-iphones.html#posts

Unregistered

Eiiieeeerrr!!! Wo yao!!! I want iPhone!!! How much does it cost? XD

Unregistered

Omg. :3 I'm going to have to mug you now. When will you be taking a long walk, along a dark alleyway? =p
