[box type=info]Update 2: Malaysia iPhone 5 release date has been confirmed. Read more…[/box]
Ever since Apple iPhone 5 launched in September 2012, Malaysians have been waiting for the release date in Malaysia. Some media friends claimed that their sources tell them that the Malaysia iPhone 5 launch date is November 2nd. While we cannot confirm the date just yet (Malaysia telcos are very quiet about the matter), there are some clues revealed online now. Chris Wong of iHelpBoard.my discovered that Maxis has reserved North Court in Mid Valley Megamall (events listing) for â€œMaxis iPhone 5 Promotionâ€ from 5th to 11th November. Chris also that Maxis is iPhone 5 promoter to work at KLCC Maxis Centre.
Maxis were launching Apple iPhone models at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) on Friday. If Maxis follow the tradition, November 2nd (Friday) will be the iPhone 5 launch date. However, KLCCâ€™s calendar of events does not show any Maxis event. Anyhow, as long as Maxis does not withdraw the Mid Valley venue booking, Malaysians will be able to buy Maxis iPhone 5 in November 2012. Other local telcos like DiGi, Celcom would certainly launch iPhone 5 at the same time. (via )
