There are plenty of ways to check for PDRM summons but the search result from this particular portal – Rangkaian Interaktif Laman Elektronik Kerajaan or RILEK – is rather hilarious. As the screenshot such as above is currently making rounds in the social media, who wouldn’tbe feel proud when Batman congratulates you for being a law obedient citizen? Mind you, this is actually a real and operational e-services portal.
Some might thought that the screenshot is a results of Photoshop wizardry but we can assure you that it is indeed real as we actually give it a test drive ourselves. You can do it too: just register and verify your account, log into it, choose PDRM and enter your IC number. Occasionally, the result would return a picture of fireworks instead but at the time this article is published, Batman appears in our search result almost all the time.
As hilarious as this might be, we do wonder what Warner Bros. and DC Comic think about this though. We also have no idea what image would you receive if you actually have pending PDRM summons since we all are law obedient citizens here. *cough*

5 December 2013 marked yet another milestone in Apple’s journey here in Malaysia with the release of Apple iPad Air in our market – less than two months after it was first revealed to the world. In general, you can expect to see it at majority of the reputable Apple dealers all over the country starting from today onwards with a starting price of RM 1599.
In case you missed our previous posts regarding Apple iPad Air’s release in Malaysia or just lost your way around them, here they are for your quick references:
While we only touched three retailers in our coverage above, you can actually visit plenty of other authorized retailers throughout Malaysia to obtain the new iPad Air such as CompuZone, Thunder Match. Only one exception though (ironically): Apple’s own online store, as iPad Air somehow is not yet available there.
To learn more about the device itself, head on to www.apple.com/ipad-air.
It have been 9 days since Nokia Malaysia launched the new Nokia Lumia 1520 for our market and the day has come for the device to make its way to the hand of consumers which is starting from tomorrow onwards. With that, today is the last day to order yourself a unit from our online shop over at Storekini.com.
As refresher, Storekini’s Lumia 1520 pre-order program allows you to purchase the device at RM 1999 instead of its standard RM 2159 price tag. Additionally, each pre-order customers will receive plenty of goodies alongside their spanking new 6-inch full HD phablet which is currently the best Windows Phone 8 device in the market.
These special pre-order goodies include a Coloud Boom WH-530 headphone, 32GB microSD card, 5200mAh power bank and aluminium stylus. The pre-order window will continue to open till 11:59pm tonight, so head over to Storekini.com right away to get it done.
While we are well aware of its imminent arrival into Malaysia, we have finally obtained the actual release date for the new Acer Iconia W4. For those who are not familiar with the device, the Iconia W4 is essentially an 8-inch tablet that runs on a full version of Windows 8.1 and powered by the equally new Intel Atom Z3740 processor which belongs to the Bay Trail family.
According to the announcement by Acer Malaysia earlier today, the Iconia W4-820 will make its debut tomorrow, 6 December at the PIKOM PC Fair in KLCC. Comes standard with 64GB internal storage and Microsoft Office Home & Office 2013, the device will priced at RM 1099 – instead of the RM 1199 price tag that appeared in the catalogue in our previous report.
Alternatively, consumers also able to obtain it through authorized Acer reseller through the country starting from the same date as well. To learn more about it, check out Iconia W4’s specs over at www.acer.com.my.
After hours of keeping the consumers in the dark (except for this partial list, thanks to Maxis), the full pricing for the new iPad Air for Malaysian market have finally been unveiled. Interestingly, these price tags were not revealed through Apple Malaysia‘s online store as per many of Apple’s previous launches but instead, it was revealed by retailers themselves just as they open their outlets for business this morning.
For example, the price list above was provided by Switch which is one of the many authorized retailers that are going to release the new iPad Air to their customers starting from today onwards. Upon a cross check with price lists from senQ, Machines and Thunder Match, they also carry the same pricing as above.
In general, the price of iPad Air is slightly higher than the previously released iPad with Retina Display, with differences of between RM 150 to RM 230. With that, what do you think of the pricing that Apple have set for Malaysia? Is it competitive enough or too expensive?

So far, two well-known retailers have confirmed the availability of the new iPad Air at their outlets starting from today onwards. It doesn’t end with them though as here is yet another retailer that consumers are able to visit to obtain their iPad Air today.
Announced through their Facebook page, the company stated the new tablet are available at all of their branches throughout the country. Just like previous two retailers, Mac City also didn’t provide any information regarding the pricing for iPad Air.
Then again, you can choose to refer to this listing by Maxis at the time being while waiting for Apple to officially announce iPad Air’s pricing via their online store later today. Meanwhile, do head on to Mac City’s Facebook page right over here if you have further questions about the release of iPad Air at their outlets.

While two retailers so far (with more definitely to come) have revealed that the new Apple iPad Air will be made available at their stores later today, both of them didn’t reveal the actual pricing for the new tablet. No explanations were given but we believe it is due to the fact that Apple Malaysia’s online store have yet to reveal the pricing themselves.
However, we have managed to learn the retail pricing for the 4G version of the tablet thanks to Maxis who have published their postpaid plans for iPad Air just a short moment ago. Apparently, the new iPad Air 4G is priced at RM 2049 for 16GB, RM 2299 for 32GB and RM 2649 for 64GB. No mention of the 128GB variant though.
As for the Maxis SurfMore plans itself, customers are able to obtain the new iPad Air through it for as low as RM 1449 for a 16GB model under the SurfMore75 plan. Here is a helpful chart to put things into perspective:
So, what do you think of the price?
Here’s yet another retailer that have publicly confirmed the availability of the Apple iPad Air starting from today onwards. Switch, who have 21 branches throughout country, have confirmed this fact via their official Facebook page just moments ago.
However, the iPad Air will not be available at all 21 branches. According to the announcement poster as shown above, the new tablet will only be released at selected outlets. Then again, we are still waiting for Switch to actually list down those outlets. Additionally, Switch also didn’t reveal the actual pricing for the new tablet but they did pointed out that the pricing will be made know later in the morning.
Do stay tuned for more updates as we track more locations for you to obtain the brand new Apple iPad Air in just few hours time.
