How do you handle disruption?

“Disruption” is all around. Buzzword or scream of a generation, there is no escaping it.

But looking into it from a geographical point of view, how does it fare? You tell me. I am Western Europe… :)

Customers who pre-order the Huawei Mate 10 will also get a bonus Huawei 360 Panoramic VR Camera. 

Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia announced today that the Huawei Mate 10, the latest large screen flagship from Huawei, is now available for pre-order on Vodafone’s range of no lock-in Red Plans. Customers who pre-order the Huawei Mate 10 before 14 November 2017, and either buy it outright or sign up to a Red Plan, will also get a bonus Huawei 360 Panoramic VR Camera.

Recently unveiled at the global launch event in Munich, the Mate 10 is the latest large screen flagship from Huawei that contains a number of firsts.

Big Screen

5.9”, 2K LCD screen in 16 x 9 format. The brightness has been pushed to 730 nit to increase readability in bright daylight conditions.


The Mate 10 has a class leading 4000 mAh battery and the world’s first safety-certified fast-charge systems (TUV Rheinland). The fast charge is one of the fastest available, capable of delivering 58% battery charge in 30mins – which should get you through a full day (depending on usage). Cable and SuperCharger come included in the box.


The Mate 10 includes the latest Huawei camera module, recently rated 97 by DxOMark Mobile – ranked number two of all smartphones for camera performance. The module, once again co-engineered by Leica, includes dual cameras (20 + 12 megapixels), a 4 in 1 hybrid focus, dual ISP, Summilux-H lenses, 3D panorama setting and an industry leading 1.6 aperture which should drive exceptional low light performance.


The Huawei Mate 10 is powered by the Kirin 970, the world’s first smartphone chipset with a neural processing unit (with artificial intelligence) built into the system architecture. But what does that mean for the consumer? AI will drive better all round CPU/GPU performance, power efficiency and performance over time (lifespan) but it also enables features such as the camera assistant – which through scene recognition can adjust camera settings or advanced AR applications such as the bespoke Microsoft translator.

And the nice bonus:

Customers who pre-order the Huawei Mate 10 will get a bonus Huawei 360 Panoramic VR Camera (subject to stock availability) valued at $179 (SRP).

Huawei 360 Panoramic VR Camera

The Huawei 360 Panoramic VR camera has dual 13MP lens cameras in a back to back configuration to deliver 360 photos and video as well as VR. Supporting Panorama, GIF, Fisheye, Planet and VR modes, the camera is extremely portable weighing only 30 grams and slots into any smartphone with a USB Type C port. The camera also draws power from the device it is plugged into, removing the need to recharge the device separately.

ThisIsSamsTown 2014 in review

2015 is upon us. Time to reflect and prepare for the next year.

As it does seems that end-of-year reports are a thing at the moment, why not a WordPress one. Two takes from mine.

I need to write more.

And I need to write more.

Hence, for 2015, my good resolution to finally create an editorial calendar and schedule even for this personal blog so I take the time to sit down and write the posts for which I currently only have drafts.

For now, in the words of WordPress :

“The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.”

Let us have a look!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 18 trips to carry that many people.
