Are you familiar with the Ninetology brand? Well, I’m not sure if you’re familiar with it, but I certainly am. It’s one of the world well-known brand that produces smart-phones. Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd is an ASEAN mobile device technology company; strongly driven by people’s pride and importance of being on par with global technology progression and renowned international standards. Ninetology had proven its capabilities when the brand had emerged tremendously and had earned a significant market share in Malaysia’s mobile device industry. Ninetology’s objective is to transform the way of traditional communication into the revolutionary era of smart phones. This prominent transition will assure enhancement of people quality with enhanced intelligence. Ninetology had just recently been launched in Indonesia last September and shall continue its progression to other ASEAN countries.
I’m one of their user in fact. I owned a green Ninetology Pallette. Got it at at Rm99 at a rebate price under the 1Malaysia Youth Program. Original Price was Rm399. Rm200 rebate from the government and Rm100 rebate from manufacturer. Cool, huh? Rm99 for a mid range spec Android smart-phone. But I’m not going to review my Ninetology Pallette today. Instead, I’ll be reporting about what Ninetology has unveiled during the Youth Spirit Conference in Grand Dorsett Hotel, Subang Jaya, Malaysia not long ago.
2013 marked a new milestone in the technology-communication era with the collaboration between Ninetology, Tune Talk and Qualcomm. The signing of the Synergistic Strategic Alliance ceremony between Mr. Sean Ng Chee Heng (Chief Executive Officer, Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd), Mr. Jason Lo (Chief Executive Officer, Tune Talk) and Mr. Mantosh Malhorta (Senior Director of Business Development Country Head Philippines, Singapore & Malaysia, Qualcomm Incorporated), was held on 10 April 2013 at the Grand Dorsett Hotel, Subang Jaya, Malaysia.

The hall entrance had a Lamborghini Gallardo on display with event model girls, massage chair for pleasure of guests and several personnel providing free massage services, courtesy of Relax Time. While within the hall, there were arrays of posters depicting the event’s theme.
Along with the many speeches by the event organizers was a performance by the winner of Malaysia Tag-team Beatbox Battle 2011, Koujee. Also in presence was also another speaker, Mr. Goh Thih Liang, Business Development Manager, Qualcomm Incorporated.
One of the highlights of the event was the unveiling of the Ninetology’s Pearl Mini, a bold statement for the young as it boasts on its compact and sleek body frame. Spelling undisputed convenience for energetic lifestyle movements, Pearl Mini is fit for every alpha individual who longs for superb technology on the go.
The awesome Pearl Mini will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon platform and would be packaged with Tune Talk’s prepaid service, which would include RM50 FREE Talktime (comes preloaded with SIM) and RM100 Airtime Rebate (RM10 x 10). To get this rebate, one needs only to reload RM20 or more in any denominations each month. For more information on the Tune Buddies SIM pack, visit HERE
The Pearl Mini’s is available now at all Ninetology and Tune Talk retail outlets nationwide at a recommended retail price (RRP) of RM399.
Another prominent tablet on display was the newly launch Ninetology’s Outlook Pure, an evolution of mobile tablet technology which is derived from the very essence of purity in today’s era of communication. Pure defines familiarity with family bonds in experiencing love and care, progressive learning and cherishing priceless moments, that peace of mind in your family’s growth. Recommended retail price (RRP) is at RM599. RM599 for a tablet, now that sounds quite a reasonable price, don’t you think?
I have yet to get a real hands on on these babies, but I’m definitely looking forward to review them if I’m a given a chance to do so. 😀 With my experience with their older model, Ninetology Pallete, I really have high expectation on these newly launch smart-phone and tablet. 😀
Anyway, in colloboration of the event, and as part of its on-going Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, Ninetology also presented a GOLD Cheque worth RM50,000 to Yayasan Bakti Khidmat Masyarakat Malaysia (YBKMM), Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia (RM30,000) and Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah (PPKKCTM) (RM10,000).
