Nexus 4 available for preorder from Digi for RM1499

ScreenShot002

Digi is now offering the lusted newest Nexus device by LG for as low as RM1499. It is available for preorder now and it is only available in one plan which is the DG Smart Plan 88 for monthly commitment of RM63 for 24 months. With that, you will get 8GB of data and for calls and SMSs, it will be charged per use. Digi is only offering one plan for the device because there will be no competition from other telco as the Nexus 4 will be available exclusively to Digi only. For the meantime. We might see it coming to other telcos in the future. But currently, Digi will have all the power to do whatever they wanted but still people will buy from them. =)

But despite the monopoly of the device, we still think that it is a rather good offer with 8GB of data. If you register for auto billing, you will be getting additional RM5 rebate for the first 6 months.

Nexus 4 is a highly anticipated Android device with 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, 4.7″ IPS display that does 1280×720 pixels resolution with Gorilla Glass 2, 8MP camera capable of 1080p videos, a front facing 1.3MP camera that does 720p and comes with the updated/latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. With Nexus devices, you can expect to be first to get all the OS updates as soon as it is available. Thats the cool part of getting a Nexus! So will you Nexus, S or One?

*If you are eligible for the Rm200 smartphone rebate, this will only cost you RM1299. Think about that!

Malaysian iPhone 5 plans comparison: Maxis vs Digi vs Celcom

121212-digi-iphone-5-launch-detailsThe Plans for iPhone 5 are all out from the big three: Maxis, Digi and Celcom. But how does the plans do compared to each other? Which is the plan that suits you most or give you the best value for money? Which is the cheapest among all? So you are all confused now on which plan should you go for and you are so undecided. Well, this will definitely help you in making that decision. Here is how the iPhone plans from Maxis, Digi and Celcom compared:

Maxis vs Digi vs Celcom!

ScreenShot2[Click on image to enlarge]

From the comparison above, we can see that Digi has the cheapest total cost of ownership compared to the rest. But if you consider the bundled calls, SMS and MMS from Digi’s plan, they are not as good as Maxis. For me, I think that Maxis provide the most value for money plans for iPhone 5 compared to Digi and Celcom. Except for the iValue Simple. In my opinion, it is not as good as it looks. It is cheap, and that’s all. I would prefer iDigi 88 than iValue Simple.

And the best part is, Maxis no longer charges for data when the data quota is exceeded. Only the speed will be throttled. But even a throttled data speed for Maxis is considered fast because the speed is reduced by 3 fold, unlike Digi or Celcom which the data will be throttler to a sad 256kbps. But note that the free SMS that comes with Maxis plans are Maxis to Maxis only. SMS to other operators will be charged.

For Celcom, a combination of calls, SMS and MMS of up to 1500 will be given. That will make it more flexible for people instead of having a fix number of minutes and SMS. And Celcom plans also comes with a huge amount of Data. So if you are someone who seldom call and SMS but uses data alot, Celcom might be the best for you.

In conclusion:

Maxis

Good: Best value for money (excluding iValue Simple). Good coverage. Excellent internet speed. Get free 1000 minutes calls for Maxis to Maxis in your contract period.
Bad: More pricey compared to the others. Concern on bill shock. iValue Simple sucks.

Digi

Good: Cheapest plans for iPhone 5. Low monthly commitment compared to the others.

Bad: Only 24 months contract. Not as powerful coverage. Slow internet speed. iPhone 5 price only subsidized a little.

Celcom

Good: Flexible calls/SMS/MMS plan. Huge amount of data. Good coverage and average internet speed.

Bad: Too little calls/SMS bundled. Most expensive when value for money is concerned.

With this, I hope you can decide better on which plan to go for when you plan to get you iPhone 5. Well maybe you have already decided, but this can make things a little bit clearer to you. So basically if you want a cheaper plan, go for Digi, if you want something with the best value for money, Maxis is the best, if you are looking for flexibility and huge amount of data, there is none other than Celcom.

Enjoy your iPhone 5 people! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. And please share this with your friends and family!

Digi iPhone 5 plans revealed, priced from RM2012

ScreenShot010

Shortly after Maxis revealed their iPhone 5 plans, Digi have also revealed theirs and similarly, its not much difference from the iPhone 4S plans when 4S is first introduced. Which is in a way good. With Digi iPhone plans, we have iDigi 88, iDigi 138 and iDigi 238 which requires monthly commitment of RM60, RM93 and RM161 respectively. The monthly commitment is cheaper than Maxis but for all the iDigi plans, the iPhone 5 price starts at RM2012. But overall, the total ownership cost will be slightly cheaper for Digi. We will have a comparison chart out soon after Celcom release their plans for iPhone 5.

This is how the iDigi plans look like.

Digi to offer Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 soon!

ScreenShot

Digi will be among the first to offer the new Windows Phone from Nokia which are the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. Both these devices runs Windows Phone 8 which is a very promising mobile OS but only time will tell how successful it will become. The Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are targeted to compete with the likes of HTC’s flagship Windows Phone, the Windows Phone 8X and the Samsung’s Samsung Ativ. It will be a wild competition for Windows Phone devices soon but as usual, the hype for Windows Phone devices are always more quiet than other Android devices or iPhone. The reason to that will remain a mystery. Maybe it is because the market for Windows Phone is smaller comparatively so they did not put so much into marketing. Sigh.

Anyway, the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 will be coming soon to please you. In our opinion, both are great phones with the 920 being the flagship and 820 more like a sidekick. But we think 820 is the better looking one here. But flagship Lumia 920 comes with 4.5″ PureMotion HD+ display that pushes 1280×768 pixels resolution, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and a generous 32GB of storage. One of its key highlight is the 8.7MP PureView Camera which comes with floating lens image stabiliser. Meanwhile, the smaller Lumia 820 is a mid-spec device with a 4.3″ display that pushes 800×480 pixels, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage which is expandable with microSD.

Head on to Digi’s webpage!

Anyway, if you are interested in taking the Celcom package/contract for iPhone 5, do register your interest now.
