U Mobile has recently added the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom to its device bundles, allowing you to get one of the latest camera smartphone from the Korean company from as low as RM449; the recommended retail price is RM1,699. As always, the telco is offering the device with its postpaid plans starting from as low as RM58 a month.
In our busy lives today, we often lose contact with our friends, and thanks to the Internet and social media, the distance between two people becomes further and further away. U Mobile has recently announced a “Project Buah Tangan” that aims to reconnect Malaysians through a simple practice that has been largely forgotten – the act of giving.
U Mobile has become the first local telco to open pre-orders for the new Huawei Ascend P7.
Oddly enough, there are no pricing details yet available on the site, and there isn’t much information beyond the fact that there is an early bird promotion that offers a Huawei Ultra Thin Power Bank for the first 100 hundred pre-orders – though that information appears to be wrong.
[Update @ June 27, 12:45pm] U Mobile has announced that the Ascend P7 will be available with no upfront payment, with a subsidized device price from as low as RM188. More below.
We’ve seen mobile payment solutions tied to your smartphone around the world for a while now with Square being one of the more popular in the US. U Mobile have brought a solution of their own, hoping to make mobile payments a lot easier for small business owners. Introducing QuickPay by U Mobile, a dongle that fits into the headphone jack of your iOS or Android device and allows you to accept mobile payments from credit or debit cards just about anywhere.
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*
Hot on the heels of their incredible HTC One M8 deal, U Mobile have given the 999 treatment to yet another impressive flagship, the Sony Xperia Z2. U Mobile plans have been extremely attractive as due to the lack of upfront payment and low phone price with the more expensive plans. Even at the lowest end plans, the Z2 will start from RM1,799 which is a pretty good deal as well all things considered.
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.
Still remember the RM 555 deal (RM 999 for non Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum Credit Card customers) that U Mobile has for Samsung Galaxy S5? It turns out that the telco is planning to reduce the price even further, according to this yet-to-be-released artwork for U Mobile’s official website.
U Mobile have just introduced their latest postpaid offerings to replace their existing U58 and U88 plans; Called “#TheBestUnlimited” Unlimited 50 and 80 Postpaid, the plan offers users free internet roaming across Asia (Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan & Thailand), share minutes and data across up to 3 SIMs under a single plan, free calls to U Mobile friends all day and night as well as unlimited internet with no extra charges after exceeding quota, all starting at RM50 a month.
Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today has revealed that it has issued a total of 28 compounds to several major telcos in the country including Celcom, DiGi, Maxis, and U Mobile due to unsatisfactory rate of dropped calls. Altogether, the compounds have cost these telcos RM 1.2 million.
While that amount might not be much if you compared to the revenue that these telcos manage to collect every year but it is still significantly higher from the compounds that what MCMC has issued in March 2013.
Exclusivity, schmexclusivity, eh? Less than 24 hours after both Maxis and HTC Malaysia announced an agreement for an exclusive partnership where Maxis will be the only local telco to offer HTC devices with its postpaid plans starting with the flagship HTC One M8, U Mobile announced their own postpaid bundle for the same device – and with an arguably more attractive offer.
Last night, DiGi jumped into the bandwagon as well, teasing the One M8 with a “Stay Tuned” message on its Facebook page.
