Malaysia main telcos â€“ Celcom, DiGi, Maxis â€“ updated their websites to add iPad Air and iPad mini with retina display (iPad mini 2) to their list of mobile devices. Pre-registration open now, except Maxis.
Celcom (iPad air, iPad mini 2) and DiGi are now accepting register of interest for both two latest tablets from Apple. Maxis does not have pre-registeration, only says on the website “Plans & pricing coming soon”.
While none of the telcos unveil the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 price and release date, sources say that Celcom will unveil iPad Air plans on December 9th, 2013.Â It is safe to assume other telcos will follow the same iPad release date.
The rule of thumb is that â€œyou can always buy new iPad before Christmas of the year.â€ Hohoho! :)
