[UPDATE: 200PM, 23 July] DiGi has posted teaser for Xiaomi Redmi 1S on its Facebook page which is the first confirmation of the tips we received yesterday. Read more to see it.
While the newly announced Xiaomi Mi 4 is busy getting everyone’s attention for today, let’s not forget that the fledgling Chinese manufacturer still have plenty of devices under its wing. One of them is the Redmi 1S which is the most affordable Xiaomi’s smartphone in Malaysia at the moment.
If you somehow missed your chance to get one on your hands from Xiaomi Malaysia’s website, then you might want to look out for an announcement from DiGi tomorrow.
What might looked like just another random car accident in Kuantan, the violent reaction from the young lady against an elderly man in this video is enough to make it go viral. Nicknamed as the #CDM25 incident which is a reference to the registration number of the Peugeot 208 that was driven by the lady, it has sparked plenty of reaction not only among local netizens but also throughout the country.
Even DiGi has joined the bandwagon as well and has offered to fix the vehicles that were involved in the accident.
Now that Celcom has announced a new plan for its iPhone 5S bundles at only RM48 a month, how does it stack up against what Maxis and DiGi have got to offer with their similar monthly commitment bundles? We compared the new RM48 plan from Celcom, Maxis’ iValue Simple and the latest iDiGi 50 so hit the break to check them out.
Without a doubt, the Xiaomi Mi 3 is one of the most exciting devices to be released in the country. Featuring flagship-level specs at almost a third of what you’d expect to pay for a flagship smartphone, the device is also one of the most elusive, available (officially) only via Xiaomi’s flash sales at an eye-wateringly affordable price of RM769.
But what if you are one of the many, many frustrated people who can’t get their hands on the Mi 3 via the flash sales? Your only hope lies with the local telcos, specifically the big three: DiGi, Maxis and Celcom. Of the three, DiGi is the only one offering the Mi 3 both with an off-contract prepaid plan as well as a postpaid plan – though that offer has since ended. On the other hand, the postpaid bundles offered by all three telcos give steep discounts on the device price, so if you’re interested, read on.
DiGi has announced new iDiGi postpaid plans for the iPhone contract bundles, streamlining them to be similar to its SmartPlan postpaid offering. Now, the new iDiGi postpaid plans will have a similar monthly commitment charges of RM50, RM108 and RM148, while the iDiGi 238 plan will be retained.
As the only local telecommunications provider who has not collaborated with other companies to share precious 2600MHz spectra for its LTE rollout, DiGi is looking at possible alternatives for its LTE rollout which it commenced several months ago. One such move is to refarm its 1800MHz band to support its 2 x 10MHz spectrum in the 2600MHz band as awarded by the Malaysian government.
[UPDATE @ 12:45pm] DiGi has updated its site with more details on the new iDiGi 50 plan. More below.
DiGi has unveiled a new, more affordable postpaid plan for the iPhone. The new iDiGi 50 plan offers a generous 2GB of data as well as free calls and SMS, and also offers a slight rebate on the iPhone 5s with a 12-month contract.
Maxis’ YouTube video to promote its new MaxisONE postpaid plan was simple, with an equally simple message. Its serene, calm serenade of waves hitting the beach front is reminiscent of its “liberating” new plans that offer limitless calls and SMS to any number, any time.
DiGi, on the other hand, have had quite a reputation for trolling its peers, and it looks like the trolling machine has taken aim once again.
The Xperia Z2 is the followup to the popular Xperia Z1 which was one of my favourite phones of the year last year and today both U Mobile and DiGi have come up with their various plans for the device. Since 3/4 players have deals for the phone, it’s no better time than now to have a telco price comparison to help you decide which plans suit you best!
*UPDATED WITH THE LATEST MAXIS ONE PLAN DEALS*
Thanks to overwhelming response for this afternoon’s deal at noon, DiGi have come up with 1000 more units of one of the most sought after phones around these days, the Xiaomi MI 3. The deal stands to be the same as the one this afternoon and is a decent one at that. Hit up the page here to grab yours before they run out!
It’s worth noting however that delivery of the MI 3 will only begin from 25th June 2014 onwards. If you’re in no rush, why not?
After announcing its postpaid bundle for the hugely popular new smartphone in town, the Xiaomi Mi 3, DiGi has now announced that the Mi 3 will also be available off-contract with a DiGi Easy Prepaid bundle. While many have criticized DiGi’s move to bundle the Mi 3 with a two-year contract, this prepaid bundle appears to be a lot more attractive.
The HTC One M8 was one of the most talked about device of 2014, with its amazing build quality and interesting inclusion of a second lens, it’s certainly one of the best phones to come out this year.
While Maxis has announced that it would be the only Telco to be carrying the M8 as well as all HTC devices from now onward, DiGi and U Mobile beat them to the punch, having their own plans and promotions for the device. Whether or not the M8 is exclusive to Maxis is one thing, but here is a comparison between ALL of the telcos offering it right now.
