ScreenShot

Celcom has revealed the plan for iPhone 5 to those who registered their interest on iPhone 5 with Celcom. So I who registered myself got an email from Celcom with the plan like above. Celcom is doing it the unconventional way without any tailored made iPhone plans like they do previously and like how Digi and Maxis still does. But instead, they offer iPhone 5 with a subsidized price when you sign 12 months and 24 months contract of the bundled Celcom First Plan + Mobile internet.

The plan is like the image above, please click on the image for a larger clearer look.

So basically, you can choose between 4 choices of plans which includes:

Celcom First Prime (RM40) + 1.05GB free data + Mobile internet 3GB (RM58) = RM98/month
Celcom First Prime (RM40) + 1.05GB free data + Mobile Internet 5GB (RM88) = RM128/month
Celcom First Premier (RM80) + 1.1GB free data + Mobile Internet 5GB (RM88) = RM168/month
Celcom First Elite (RM150) + 1.2GB free data + Mobile Internet 5GB (RM88) = RM238/month

These plans from Celcom does look good and feel different from those conventional iPhone plans. The bundled talk time, SMS and MMS varies depending on which Celcom First plan you take. And they offers monthly rebates also that also varies depending on your iPhone 5 model.

Apple’s iPad mini event round-up: everything you have to know!

The iPad mini event is over and much have been talked about especially on all the products Apple introduces in one event! We have a list of products Apple shows to the world in the event and iPad Mini, the long awaited iPad Mini is one of them. Yes, there are also iMacs and MacBooks. Chill.

Everything about the event was awesome, but there is only one let down when Apple introduces the iPad 4th gen. The 3rd generation iPad is just out for 7-8 months and we all expect Apple to have a minor refresh on the iPad (like what happened to iPad 2 last year) but the refresh is too much to be considered minor. This will make some iPad 3 owner to be pissed but some says they would be happy with their iPad 3 and saving on lightning adapters.

Rather than going all over the internet for all the post about the Apple event, we found an awesome round-up of the event by Cult of Mac which gives a complete round-up of the event. Enjoy!

Here’s everything that Apple announced at today’s keynote:
