I Really really want to change my phone now.. the HTC Artemis I'm using currently is so outdated.. it is launched in 2006 and the good thing about it is only the GPS, which sucks sometimes. no 3G, only edge..

So this will be my choice for my next phone.

1. HTC HD2

1. 1Ghz Quallcomm SnapDragon Processor - damn fast! no more app lagging!
2. 4.3 inches of pure goodness.. Good for GPS Navigation (my main priority) and watching movies on the go.
3.HTC Sense - the interface is GOOODDD

1. Cant do Video Call and no secondary camera
2.Windows Mobile 6.5 is soo OLD!
3.only 200MB internal memory. (my HTC Artemis is 32MB internal though)

PRICE : RM1999

2.iPhone 4

1. Apple A4 Proccesor - i think its 1Ghz
2.32GB internal space
3.PentaBand HSPA
4. Retina Display (940X640 resolution) with IPS LCD
5.Shoots video at 720p @ 30fps
6. GyroScopre

1. Overrated
2. Expensive
3. OS is not "free" cannot get apps outside the Apple AppStore
4. no Garmin GPS software. cause other GPS software doesnt update Malaysian maps
5. Reception issues - cant touch some angle of the phone as it will interfear with the cell reception
6.Video Calling is WiFi and iPhone-to-iPhone only.


3. Nokia N8


1. 16GB Internal space
2. AMOLED screen
3. Can output video to TV through HDMI
4.12MP AF camera with XENON flash
5. Video Calling


1. Hurmmm, maybe the price?
2. Symbian gonna die soon
3.Screen not big enough
4. only 680mhz processor.

PRICE: Not available yet (maybe around iphone's price)

called Astro on Saturday, gave them the account number, Decoder serial number and agreed to the terms and condition. There is a 1 year contract for this b.yond, but who cares, we've been on Astro since 1996/1997. After that Astro said they will install b.yond here before 19th June. That's a long time..

yesterday, 8th june 2010, Astro called and said they will install it tomorrow (which is today 9/6/2010). Then today, they called again that they were coming to install.. within 15 minutes, they arrived at my home.

They unhook the cables from the old decoder because they wanna take it back.

So here is the box for the new Astro B.yond decoder

Then they started to remove the old dish, and install the new one

removing the old one

installing the new, black, wider dish

Goodbye PHILIPS ASTRO dish, u've served is more than 10 years already

Now the new dish is fixed, testing the dish for the optimal satellite reception

after the dish is fully installed, they checked the satellite setting on the TV

After everything is done, the Astro installer explained to me 1 by 1 of the Astro B.yond features.. then he updated the software version to the latest..

Here are some pics of the HD channels


And here are 2 other shots from HBO HD

The installation time took roughly around 1 hour. I wish I had a bigger screen TV so I can see more picture details..
