The 3 telcos in Singapore will be shutting down the 2G network starting from today. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke. It’s real.
This mean that beginning today your old 2G phones cannot be used anymore. Phones like your Nokia 3310, Ericsson T10, Motorola StarTAC etc.
But most people won’t be affected. However, there might be some senior citizens who are still holding on to old 2G phones and didn’t know about this 2G network shutdown. So if you know anyone, do help them switch to a 3G or 4G phone.
Oh ya, and those going for reservist can no longer use their good old Nokia or Ericsson phone now. Goodbye my Nokia 8250. (Not that I still need to go back reservist anymore)
Samsung is having an Unpacked event at New York today (11pm Singapore time) for the Samsung Galaxy S8. You can catch the live stream on Samsung website.
The announcement is slightly later than usual. We usually get the announcement at Mobile World Congress around late February or early March. Samsung delayed the announcement following the investigation into the Note 7 fire.
Samsung has since introduced a 8-Point Battery Safety Check for its smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the first major smartphone launch since Note 7.
