Like other Android phone manufacturers, Chinese company Meizu is looking to expand its market outside of China, and one the closest possible option is India.
That's why the company will officially launch its Meizu M1 Note phablet via a flash sale in the Asian subcontinent.
According to the report by GSM Arena, the M1 Note smartphone will become available in India beginning 2pm local time via Amazon India. Unfortunately for interested buyers, they would only be able to know the price one the sale goes live tomorrow. more >>
Meizu is not unknown in the mobile world, especially in China and Asia where it has focused its market strategy. However, it is definitely not satisfied being referred to as "another Chinese phone maker." And so, just months after releasing the first M1 Note, the company is reportedly working on the device's successor.
According to a report by GSM Arena, a new leak has surfaced showing the unannounced device placed beside the M1 Note.
While there are not a lot of things we know yet about the Meizu M1 Note 2, at least the leak has more or less given us an idea how it would look like. more >>

Sun Ho, the co-founder of Singapore's City Harvest Church and wife of lead pastor Kong Hee, took the stand for the first time on Tuesday in the long-standing case against Kong and five other CHC leaders accused of misusing millions of church funds for Ho's career. The singer claimed that the Crossover project was meant to serve the mission of the church, and not her own career.
The Straits Times reported on Tuesday that Ho, who has not been charged herself, said that the Crossover project was "always about the church."
The six CHC members are being accused of funneling money into Ho's career through sham bond investing in the management company called Xtron, which the prosecution says was operated by CHC's leadership. The six accused face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of having misused the $19.2 million in church funds in question. more >>
