HWZ Deal Alert: 10th December 2018

Got deals, got talk!

On this rainy Monday afternoon, let's sit back on our chair and do some online shopping.


1.) Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018)

The 2018 Kindle Paperwhite is the first mainstream Kindle after the more expensive Oasis to feature IPX8 waterproofing. There’s support for Audible audiobooks too, and the base model’s capacity has been doubled to 8GB. Despite the new additions, the new Paperwhite (still with a 6-inch, 300ppi screen) still manages to be thinner and lighter than its predecessor. Launched just this past October, Amazon is already discounting this newest member of the Kindle family, with the 8GB model now going for US$99.99 (U.P: US$129.99). Alternatively, there’s this special bundle that includes a set of over-ear wireless Bluetooth headphones and 3 months of Audible subscription for US$139 (U.P: US$255). Take note though: Amazon doesn't ship its Kindles to Singapore, so you’ve to find your own forwarder.

2.) Sony WI-1000X Noise-Canceling In-Ear Headphones

The Sony WI-1000X is a pair of premium behind-neck in-ear headphones featuring advanced noise-canceling tech. It has smart modes that can automatically adjust noise-canceling levels based on your activity, including an ambient mode that lets you hear more of your surrounding without taking the headphones off. Also, after an update, it’ll work with Google Assistant, so you can use it to ask questions and control smart appliances. Amazon is now selling the WI-1000X (in black and gold) for US$198, or about US$206 (~S$298) if you were to include the shipping fee to Singapore. For what it’s worth, the WI-1000X has a sticker price of S$449 here.

3.) Anker Nebula Capsule Smart Projector

The Nebula Capsule from Anker is an ultra-portable projector (roughly the size of a can of Coke and weighing just over 400g) running on Android 7.1 OS. It has a built-in 5,200mAh battery that provides up to 30 hours of music playtime in Bluetooth speaker mode or 4 hours of movie playtime in battery mode. Featuring 100 ANSI lumens of brightness and a native 854 x 480-pixel resolution, you can easily operate the Nebula Capsule using the Capsule Control app that’s available for both Android and iOS. Normally priced at US$300, you can get one now from Amazon for US$236 (~S$342) when you use the code XMASCPM1. You do, however, need to find your own way to ship it here.
