[Update 12/2/2016]: A lot has changed over the past few months, particularly with Celcom, Digi, and U Mobile. These major telecommunication companies have unveiled their latest offerings, so let’s take a look at them one by one after the break.
There are four major telcos here in Malaysia that offer postpaid voice and messaging services along with data – Maxis, Celcom, DiGi and U Mobile. Each of these telcos have their own rates for different voice calls/SMS/MMS and data that are catered for different people in the market, so which one is best suited for your usage? We’ve compiled a list of all the plans offered by each of these telcos so if you want to subscribe to a postpaid line or simply wish to port to a different telco, look no further. These rates are the latest ones offered by these four telcos, which includes the latest plans from DiGi (the new SmartPlan plans with 4G LTE), as well as U Mobile’s latest Unlimited plans.
Just a little reminder, none of these plans are tied to any contract. Contract only applies for phone bundles, or when the telco gives you an extra discount for signing up for a contract. Otherwise, you will be free to change your plans anytime you want.
U Mobile has just unveiled its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus plans. Just like the existing iPhone bundles, the telco will offer these latest iPhones with a postpaid and prepaid plan, and as expected, you can apply for MicroCredit with Flexi Instalments. U Mobile also has a trade-in offer to buy the new iPhones, offering rebates as much as RM1,900 for your old smartphone.
We’ve seen quite a lot of reports about Apple using two different manufacturers for the A9 chipset in its new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, (from Samsung and from TSMC) but do they really make a difference? According to several users, the processor offered by TSMC runs cooler and offers a better battery life, but of course, Apple denies it.
SwiftKey is one of the most popular third-party keyboard that is available on Android and iOS, and it looks like the company has got an even more interesting product up its sleeves. SwiftKey just announced a new keyboard, the “world’s first smartphone keyboard software that uses networks to predict and correct your typing”.
As expected, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus preorders in Malaysia has already started. Starting from 12am, 9 October 2015, Maxis and Digi have already unveiled their iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plans and pricing, and if you wish to get one for yourself, hit the break to see their plans.
It’s been a while since Apple updated its 21.5” iMacs and if you have been patiently waiting to see what the company has got to offer 13 October 2015 is the date to mark on your calendar. According to rumours, Apple will announce a new 21.5” 4K iMacs on the date, which will be available for purchase soon after.
