Instagram reportedly blocked in mainland China as protests in Hong Kong intensify

Hong Kong’s Central business district is currently in the midst of a massive pro-Democracy protest, and the Chinese government appears to be doing all it can to prevent images of the demonstrations from reaching the mainland. Reports suggest that China has blocked access to Instagram in the Chinese mainland. The site was one of a scarce few social networks that had avoided the attention of China’s censors, but as photos of the protests flooded the image sharing service under the hashtag #OccupyCentral, it seems the government decided to pull the plug. Website monitoring services blockedinchina.net and greatfire.org both indicate that mainland China cannot access Instagram.

Notably, a block from Beijing does not mean that Hong Kong has…

Hong Kong’s CSL upgrades to LTE Cat 4 network, offers Huawei’s 150Mbps mobile hotspot (video)

Hong Kong gets LTE Advanced Cat 4 network and mobile hotspot, courtesy of CSL

With Hong Kong boasting pretty much the fastest average internet speed on this planet, it’s no surprise that the city is also one of the first to launch commercial 150Mbps LTE Cat 4 service — just right after SingTel’s launch in Singapore earlier this month. Announced yesterday by CSL (who operates both one2free and the more premium 1010), its FD-LTE network takes advantage of the recently acquired 5MHz extended spectrum, in order to increase the capacity of 2600MHz from 2 x 15MHz to 2 x 20MHz. This upgrade is what enables Cat 4 download speed of up to 150Mbps on this band as of yesterday.

The company’s 1800MHz spectrum will also get an upgrade from 2 x 10MHz to 2 x 15MHz in June, followed by another jump to 2 x 20MHz towards the end of the year. You’ll find a live demo video (courtesy of RingHK) showing the performance difference between Cat 3 and Cat 4 after the break, with CTO Christian Daigneault claiming he’s seen a speed increase of up to twice as fast in the lab.

Alleged ‘iPad 5′ case spotted in Hong Kong, hints at slimmer and narrower body

Alleged 'iPad 5' case spotted at Hong Kong Electronics Fair

Rumors of an upcoming iPad sporting a similar design as the iPad mini go as far back as late January this year, when our reliable buddies at 9to5Mac shared some clear images of a leaked chassis (check them out at the “More Coverage” link below). This was followed by an alleged picture of the front panel sent out around previously this month. However as before, cases for this unreleased “iPad 5″ have likewise been making the rounds in China, and we’ve handled to get our hands on one at the Hong Kong Electronic devices Fair earlier today. It coincides old tale according to a staff at the booth: the case is based upon a leaked mold. Oops!

Compared with a similar case made for the 2 latest generations of the bigger iPad, this case again suggests a slimmer and narrower iPad is in the works, which would suggest that this mysterious tablet is most likely to have the exact same display size however thinner left and right-side bezels– just like the iPad mini. Similarly, the straighter edges support 9to5Mac’s earlier leakage of the iPad mini-like body. Let’s simply hope that Apple will still have a couple of shocks up its sleeves then, eh?

Xiaomi Phone 2 preps Hong Kong and Taiwan launch, seeks early local testers on Facebook

Xiaomi preps Hong Kong and Taiwan launch, recruiting early users on Facebook

We knew Xiaomi’s keen to bring its phones into the European market, but prior to taking that long-haul flight, the Chinese company is visiting make a couple of stops in Asia. According to the latest updates on the company’s Twitter feed and a freshly-made Facebook team (under “Xiaomi Asia”), the Xiaomi Phone 2 will be striking Hong Kong and Taiwan “in the near future,” and people staying in those two regions could get in a draw for a chance to become a guinea porker assistance check the phone’s localized MIUI ROM (in typical Chinese, normally) ahead of launch. CEO Bouquet Jun had actually formerly specified that his business would broaden into Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore by the end of this year, however due to the frustrating demand of Qualcomm’s 28nm chipsets throughout the year, it’s extremely unlikely that Xiaomi can understand its original plan in time. Regardless, from what we understand, Xiaomi could partner with Chunghwa Telecom to offer the Xiaomi Phone 2 in Taiwan, whereas in Hong Kong it might use the customary online direct sale design to begin with– unlike Meizu who has a physical store in the city, along with a partnership with local carrier PCCW. Now, how about a full schedule for your world domination, Mr. Bouquet?

Lytro light field camera on pool cue

Lytro isn’t really done expanding the usefulness of its light field camera simply since we have manual controls. Yet another update due by the end of the year will make the most of that focus-independent sensor to permit a parallax-based 3D effect in photos: invoke a ‘full’ focus in assessing tries and you can begin poking around the scene in a restricted way without having ever before touched a dual-sensor camera. Suitably, we’re also getting support for examining photos on 3D screens and Televisions that emphasize the added depth. The promised functions come hand-in-hand with Lytro’s immediate accessibility in Hong Kong, where 8GB blue and gray cameras are offering for $ 3,888 HKD ($ 502 US) and the 16GB red design chooses $ 4,688 HKD ($ 605). Look into our Chinese staff’s eyes-on appearance at the parallax effect in a video after the break.

Liquipel launches retail store in Hong Kong, spreads the hydrophobia for gadgets

Liquipel launches retail store in Hong Kong, spreads the waterproof love

Over the years we’ve come across many hydrophobic coating technologies aimed at electronics, but sadly, none of those were made directly available to consumers. The closest one was Nokia’s nanocoating demonstration we saw last October, though the company recently said to us that it’s still “currently a research project,” and it never mentioned plans to offer a service to treat existing devices. On the other hand, Californian startup Liquipel recently opened its first Hong Kong retail store, making it the second Liquipel service center globally after the one located at the Santa Ana headquarters. Folks in the area can simply call up to make an appointment, and then head over with their phones or tablets to get the nanocoating treatment. So how does this funky technology work? How does it cover both the inside and the outside of gadgets? And is Liquipel’s offering any better than its rivals? Read on to find out.
