U Mobile may be a late player in this whole Samsung Galaxy S5 telco bundle but it looks like the wait will be worth it after all…for U Mobile loyal customers at least. The telco is now teasing that they start offering the Galaxy S5 on 25 April 2014 with no upfront payment required when you sign up, meaning you only pay for the subsidized price of the device.
Now that the HP Slate 6 VoiceTab has finally landed in our shores for a retail price of RM999, you can purchase the device from redONE and enjoy a rebate worth RM120. redONE Mobile, Malaysia’s only postpaid MVNO is offering the Slate 6 with its postpaid plan at only RM58/month.

Waking up early to attend Celcom’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 paid off for retired military office Abdul Hamid Husin as he was gifted the smartphone for being the first in line. Abdul Hamid had arrived to the queue at 6.30am, despite the Blue Cube in Sunway Pyramid only opening it’s doors at 10am.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will finally hit the shelves tomorrow, 11 April 2014, and if you are making a list of where to go for the lowest price, here’s one more for you to consider – senQ.

Celcom has announced a new loyalty program for its pre- and postpaid customers that promises to reward them with instant rewards and add more value for their money. What separates Celcom’s new customer loyalty program from conventional loyalty programs is in the model itself: there are no points collections involved. Instead, Celcom borrows heavily from the achievement-based perks found in many popular games today.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 will finally hit the shelves this Friday, 11 April 2014 for a retail price of RM2,399, but you don’t have to pay full price to own one.

Maxis and DiGi have already opened up their preorder (Maxis’ preorders are full now, unfortunately), and while we’re waiting for Celcom and possibly U Mobile to unveil their plans, here’s a comparison of the two that are currently available.
Remember the new DiGi SmartPlan postpaid plans that was unveiled by the telco earlier this month?

According to our sources, DiGi will be revising its SmartPlan 50 to give double the value at the same price.
[Update] Sorry for the error earlier, the revised SmartPlan postpaid plans will come with additional freebies on top of what’s being offered right now, which means you will get extra 100 free minutes and 100 free SMS.
