Malaysia breaking news. DiGi Malaysia is to be the 2nd telco to offer Apple iPhone in Malaysia. Maxis Malaysia iPhone exclusive will end within the first half of 2010.
1st March 2010, DiGi announced that the iPhone deal is coming soon at http://www.digi.com.my/iphone/.
Despite the big “Soon.” word, DiGi did not real much information about their coming iPhone deals.
We only know that DiGi iPhone 3GS will be available within the first half of 2010. Period.
DiGi to offer cheaper iPhone 3GS?
According to the recent AppleInsider news, a new iPhone model with new functionality and lower cost is expected in June 2010.
iPhone 4G, maybe?
DiGi iPhone availability date is close to June, could DiGi offer the latest iPhone (and cheaper)? We’ll see.
Switching to DiGi?
I planned to switch from Maxis to DiGi since last year. I’m now paying RM50 to Maxis each month for 500MB iData plan.
DiGi has a better offer of Internet Unlimited data plan (quota of 3GB) for only RM58/month, even though its 3G coverage is still limited (only EDGE in my home area).
My two cents
Competition is good for consumers. Like in Singapore, the more competitors the more affordable an iPhone is. I’m glad to see that Maxis is no longer the iPhone exclusive.
DiGi, surprise us with your coming iPhone deals!
