iPhone 3GS in Malaysia

iPhone 3GS Asia

According to KLue, a Maxis Communications Berhad press release has confirmed that the official launch date of iPhone 3GS in Malaysia will be on July 31. The press release also gave some details on the pricing of the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 3GS as well as the 8GB iPhone 3G. Maxis is now accepting pre-booking on their website for the iPhone 3GS.

This comes after the announcement by Globe Telecom in early July about the July 31st release date of the iPhone 3GS in the Philippines and have started accepting reservations this Wednesday.

The iPhone 3GS went on sale in Hong Kong and Singapore on July 10.

Apple Store Hong Kong offering unlocked iPhone 3GS

iPhone 3GS

Apple Store Hong Kong is now selling unlocked iPhone 3GS units and only requires a working SIM card for the iPhone 3GS to work in any GSM network, according to MacNN.

The 16GB iPhone 3GS costs HK$5,388 (P33,475) and the 32GB version costs HK$6,288 (P39,230). The 8GB iPhone 3G is also available for only HK$4,488 (P28,020).

The prices are not so bad considering Globe, under their prepaid plan, is offering the 16GB iPhone 3GS for P38,850 and the 32GB model for P42,250. The 8GB iPhone 3G under iPhone plan 399 now costs P32,500 (used to be P25,050). Oh, all of these iPhone units are locked to Globe.

Now, if only Apple could do the same thing with the iPhone as they did with their portable Macs and iPods. That is, instead of a carrier-dependent warranty for the iPhone, make it international warranty.

On July 21, I moved my blog to its own server.

So www.davaomacuser.com no longer points to davaomacuser.wordpress.com.

I've already got a few new posts over there so please join me at www.davaomacuser.com.

See you there. Thanks!
