Now that Maxis has finally taken the covers off its HTC One phone bundling, as always, check out a telco price comparison from us. The flagship HTC smartphone that boasts an impressive design, a whole list of new features, as well as the one-of-a-kind Ultrapixel camera is now available in Malaysia, as well as from major local telcos – DiGi, U Mobile, Celcom and Maxis. Get it from as low as RM1,269 from DiGi, as low as RM1,488 from U Mobile, as low as RM1,428 from Celcom, or as low as RM1,299 from Maxis, when you sign up for a 12-, 18- or 24-months contract from the telco; contract duration differs from telco to telco.
We’ve broken down the price according to monthly commitment so depending on what you can afford on a monthly basis, so hit the break for the comparisons.
It looks like high-end flagship smartphones isn’t the only thing Maxis added to its phone bundles, appearing in the list of devices the telco offers is the new Sony Xperia E that was announced just a couple of weeks ago. Maxis is offering the entry-level Android smartphone (single SIM version) from as low as RM0 when you sign up with a contract under the telco.
The Sony Xperia E is available in selected Maxis stores. Visit Maxis for more information.
Finally, it looks Maxis has decided to start offering the HTC One with its phone bundle, quietly. Maxis has updated its Devices page with the flagship HTC smartphone, going off from as low as RM1,299 when you sign up for a contract with the telco. Available with a 12- or 24-months contract, you can opt to pick either a SurfMore plan or a TalkMore plan.
The HTC One phone bundle from Maxis is as follows:
You can purchase the HTC One at selected Maxis Centers (KLCC, Pavillion, Gardens, TTDI, Sunway, e-Curve Cheras, Danga Bay, Queensbay, Penang i-centre), or even at the telco’s online store. Visit Maxis for more information or find out more about HTC One in this link.
The BlackBerry Q10 is finally here and it looks like Celcom has unveiled its BlackBerry Q10 phone bundle on its main page. Sign up for a 12-, 18- or 24-months contract with Celcom and get the latest BlackBerry device from as low as RM1,388. Celcom is offering the Q10 with its usual Celcom First postpaid plans along with a data plan of up to 5GB.
We’re not too sure if it’s a typo at Celcom’s end, the mPro and mPro Plus plans usually comes with a 24 months contract but it’s listed as only 18 months for the BlackBerry Q10, which makes it a pretty sweet deal. Unfortunately though, accoding to the terms and conditions for mPro plans, “All Device Bundle plans with mPro &mPro Plus come with special discounted prices for the device with 24 months contract attached”, so we’ll be keeping an eye out to see if the telco makes any changes.
Visit Celcom for more information or hit the break for more details about the Q10 bundlings.
It looks like the already very affordable U Mobile has just gotten even more affordable with the new “Switch to U Mobile” deal that offers free data, free calls, and free SMS to subscribers.
First up, U Mobile yesterday introduced a new prepaid plan, the UMI 38, that comes with 200 minutes of calls, 30 free SMS and 500MB of “high-speed internet” at only RM38/month. The new prepaid plan is in addition to the already existing plans – UMI 18, UMI 28 and UMI 48.
U Mobile also announced its partnership with popular messaging apps – KakaoTalk and WeChat, to offer free data to use the apps for all UMI subscribers.
Finally, U Mobile also introduced a reward program that gives free bonus when existing U Mobile prepaid subscribers invite their friends and family to subscribe to the telco’s prepaid service. The introducer will enjoy 5% free credit every time their friends top up.
Visit U Mobile for more information.
Only less than 2 days to go before the BlackBerry Q10 officially arrives but it looks like you can already preorder it with Maxis. Maxis is offering the latest BlackBerry device from as low as RM1,178 when you sign up for a BBMore plan – BBMore55, BBMore88, or BBMore148, from as low as RM55/month. Unfortunately though, the offer is only available for new sign ups so if you’re an existing Maxis subscriber and wish to keep your number, you will need to wait till 15 May 2013.
Available on Maxis’ online store, you can do your purchase entirely from the comfort of your own seat, and the device will be delivered to you on 15 May 2013. The offers are as shown below:
Finally after weeks of waiting, it looks like Celcom has decided to offer the HTC One with its postpaid plans. Sign up for a contract with Celcom, and get the latest HTC flagship smartphone from as low as RM1,428. Celcom is offering the device with its usual Celcom First postpaid plans, as well as its data-only mPro Plus plan.
