KFC has a smartphone now, courtesy of Huawei

Whether you like their offerings or otherwise, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is a name that well-known throughout the world. In China, the fast food restaurant even has its own smartphone through a recent collaboration with Huawei. Made to celebrate KFC’s 30th anniversary in China, the collaboration seems rather apt as Huawei was also established in 1987. The chosen smartphone for this collaboration is the latest iteration of Enjoy 7 which is essentially a mid-range device.

Equipped with a 5-inch HD IPS display, the new Enjoy 7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425. It also comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 13-megapixels rear camera, and 3020mAh battery. Given the occasion, it is not surprising that both companies decided to paint the special edition phone in red colorway.

An engraving of Colonel Sanders logo on the phone’s back further differentiate the KFC edition from the standard Enjoy 7 model. Additionally, the device is also pre-loaded with KFC app that includes the ability to activate digital jukebox at KFC locations throughout China.

Die-hard KFC fans are able to get their hands on the special edition Huawei Enjoy 7 starting from tomorrow onwards for CNY 1099 (about RM 696) . However, only 5,000 units will apparently be made available and as if the signs are not obvious enough, the phone can only be obtained in China.


Comparing SIM cards from major mobile companies

When I decided to get a new SIM card, I honestly wasn’t sure which one to get because I had heard some good things about some of them and I had also heard some bad things about some of them. I decided to search online to see if I could find a site that would help me to compare Payg SIM cards. It was actually easier to find than I thought because the first site that I came across had a comprehensive list of the top deals from major mobile networks throughout the country.

I liked that it was not put in a grid format, because I really don’t get a lot of information from setups like that. Instead, there was actual content about each individual SIM card. Not only was there information about the companies but also about the various deals that each one has. In addition to that, people are able to click on a link right on the website to order a SIM card from whatever company that they choose to do business with. I read everything there, but I still had a few questions that I wasn’t sure about. Continue reading Comparing SIM cards from major mobile companies
