  • Samsung and LG are rumored to launch their new midrange phones in January at CES 2018
  • These would be the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8 Plus (2018) from Samsung, and K10 (2018) from LG

The Galaxy Note 8 has only been on the market for three months, but we’ve already seen the superb phablet’s price drop belong its usual $900+ asking price a few times during recent sales. Now, just in time for the winter holidays, Samsung’s flagship has dropped to its lowest price ever.

The latest mouth-watering deal is all thanks to eBay seller “Never MSRP”, which is offering free shipping on “brand new and sealed” Galaxy Note 8 phones in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, or Orchid Grey (Pink and Deep Sea Blue have sold out) for just $730.

The model on offer is the unlocked, international version of the Note...

Co-working dynamo WeWork has been hotly anticipated in Southeast Asia. The local ecosystem was jazzed to see the US company acquire Singapore-based Spacemob in August, preempting its arrival in the region as part of a US$500 million investment that also covers its expansion to Korea.

Five months later, Spacemob founder and CEO Turochas “T” Fuad is WeWork’s managing director for Southeast Asia, and the company’s first space is officially open for business in Singapore’s Beach Center. It also has two more confirmed Singapore spaces in the works.

This the 200th...
