There are tons of people waiting for the launch of the iPhone 4S in Malaysia for a very long time. The iPhone 4S was already launched in many other countries but there are no news on when will it reach Malaysia.
But a reliable source says that the iPhone 4S will reach the Malaysian telco on the 16th of December 2011. Sadly it wont be the month of November but lets take it positively, it will be here before Christmas! So you might just get one as your Christmas present! =)
The source says that the delay of the launch is due to the iPhone 4 stocks which are not cleared. Maxis have all of their iPhone 4 stock cleared, so this is Celcom and Digi’s fault! And there are also the unconfirmed retail pricing for iPhone 4S in Malaysia.
* iPhone 4S 16GB- RM2190
* iPhone 4S 32GB- RM2590
* iPhone 4S 64GB- RM2890/RM2990
If these prices are accurate, we can expect a lower subsidized price with contract from Maxis, Digi and Celcom. And also, the retail price for the 16GB version and the 32GB version iPhone 4S is the same as the retail price for iPhone 4 when it is announced. But of course, the iPhone 4 now cost only RM1799 without contract from the Apple online store.
I think the iPhone 4S plans will be revealed soon by the Malaysian telcos. Just hope the competition will make the telcos to come out with attractive plans for the iPhone 4S.
Who will wait for the iPhone 4S??
