DiGi made a step ahead Maxis to first announce the iPhone 4 register of interest page. Maxis iPhone 4 register of interest page is online after a couple hours, in the same afternoon.

Maxis page asks for a lot more information, such as the iPhone 4 model you are interested in, contact information, as well as IC/Passport number. All fields are mandatory. On DiGi page, all it takes is only your email address.

Both telcos have not revealed iPhone 4 price and release date.

Interestingly, DiGi does NOT promote iPhone 4 on DiGi homepage, while Maxis highlight the iPhone 4 register of interest banner at the center of Maxis homepage.

Besides iPhone 4 release date and pricing, a new question is “Will Malaysians get free iPhone 4 case, as promised by Steve Jobs?” :)

Please note that “register of interest” only notify you when iPhone 4 is available. It is not “pre-order” that allow you to reserve iPhone 4.
