Telco Deals

Telcos have always been clamoring for everyone's attention at every tech show. Sitex 2011 is no exception, with M1 and StarHub going all out with its mobile and fibre broadband deals. Unlike the previous three tech shows, expect a much smaller presence from all three telcos. In fact, SingTel has one of the smallest booth space, focusing on fibre broadband deals for its customers.

Without further ado, here's a breakdown of the hottest deals from all three telcos at Sitex 2011.

Want something even bigger than a 4.7-inch display? Then the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note, with its huge 5.3-inch SUPER AMOLED screen, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM should satisfy your needs. Question is, we aren't too sure if it's a smartphone, or a tablet.
