Maxis to bring iPhone 3G to Malaysia on March 20

KUALA LUMPUR: Maxis announced on Wednesday that it will offer iPhone 3G 8GB for free on its iValue 4 plan from March 20.

Maxis will offer a range new tariff plans, starting at just RM100 per month, tailored specifically for iPhone customers.

Maxis chief executive officer Sandip Das said in a statement: “We are very pleased to launch iPhone 3G in Malaysia as many of our mobile users have been eagerly anticipating this revolutionary phone.

“They will really enjoy the many embedded and downloadable applications from the first time they use iPhone 3G.”

The iPhone 3G combines three products in one – a phone, widescreen iPod and an Internet device.

“With fast 3G networking, GPS mapping and support for enterprise features including Microsoft Exchange, iPhone 3G puts even more features at your fingertips.

“The ground-breaking App Store provides access to tens of thousands of applications from games to social networking to financial planning and health management, generating more than 500 million downloads to date,” Maxis said in the statement.

Maxis will offer the 8GB and 16GB iPhone 3G models with four specially designed postpaid plans called iValue, all of which are voice-data bundled price plans, starting from RM100 per month.

For customers who sign up for a monthly commitment of RM375 over a 24-month period on the iValue 4 plan, the iPhone 3G 8GB will be free of charge.

The bundled voice and data plans are the first of their kind in Malaysia.

“Malaysians, including our Maxis customers, are among the highest Internet and data users in the world and iPhone 3G will further enliven their mobile experiences with Maxis,” said Das.

“We are making nearly RM1.6bil of investments into our networks this year. Over the coming months we will continue a comprehensive upgrade and expansion programme that will further enhance coverage and performance, including our high speed 3G data network.”
