Iphone 3G in Malaysia: Updated

Iphone 3G Black and White

Iphone 3G Black and White

Since AT&T in the US still doesn’t have certain date for contract-free Iphone, I’ve been trying to locate the best place to get Iphone 3G around the world.  One of the best place to get Iphone 3G now is New Zealand as all Iphone from there are already unlocked and confirmed can be used with Celcom, Digi and Maxis.

However, the price is still not buyer-friendly. It’s retailed at RM2800 for 16gb and RM2450 for 8GB. This is cost price and does not include handling and shipping which might reach beyond RM3k after all cost. At the time being, I won’t bring in the Iphone unless the demand is high enough to justify the risk. Otherwise, I might take some units if someone is really interested to get the Iphone and willing to deposit some amount first.

This is all that I got right now. Don’t forget to reply of what you think about the above price.

Iphone 3G in Malaysia?

It’s quite disappointing that after a long, hopeful waiting, Iphone 3G won’t be officially launched in Malaysia. It’s sadder still, our southern neighbor, Singapore, is included in the official release soon. Heck, even Botswana is included.

However, as we already know, Malaysia is full of dedicated Iphone bringers. I myself will try my best to fulfill Malaysian’s hunger of these ’Twice as fast. Half the price’ Iphone. I’ll update with the link to my bulk later.

Update: Many news confirm that activation for the Iphone will be on the spot. Meaning they won’t let you leave the store if you don’t activate your phone. At the moment, there is possible way for me to conduct my bulk yet.

Even more Update: The best place to get Iphone is New Zealand as its iphones are officially unlocked. So no need warranty-voiding hack or sim-adapter hassle. However the price is not very nice and friendly now as it’s retailed at 979NZD and 1129NZD for 8gb and 16gb respectively.

Iphone 3G is here! (lots of pictures)


Let’s cut the chase. What’s new on Iphone 3G.

1. 3G speed.

It’s 2.8x faster than slowball EDGE and you can browse while you are on a call.

3.8x faster in downloading attachment.


2. Enterprise features.

More features for enterprise users such as activesync support, push email, calendar and contacts.

3. GPS!

It’s not assisted GPS anymore. It’s the real GPS like garmin and tomtom. Now you can use your iphone to navigate in a car. update: there is no turn-by-turn feature. You will just be aware of where you are.


Now you will have a pulsing blue dote that follow you every step you take.

More detail on Iphone 2


The rumors about second gen Iphone are getting more authoritative each day. Here’s what Engadget managed to uncover:

  • The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
  • It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
  • The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal — the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
  • Because it’s got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn’t have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
  • The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
  • The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
  • The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
  • No solid word on battery life or storage capacity.

Estimated ship date is July.


Are you waiting for 3G iphone?


I am! and I’m really excited that I readily would sell my current 8gb Iphone once 3G model is out. Rumors are getting hot about June released date for Iphone 3G.

First, many EU providers either already cut Iphone price or in talks to cut Iphone price.The move is to clear out abundant unsold stock due to their overestimated sale figures. Here’s another story that’s just in.

Clearing Inventory for ’radically different’ 3G iPhone?

Second, Apple store used to ship Iphone in 1-3 business days, now it’s changed to 5-7 days. This just-in-time production strategy is believed to reduce overall inventory to minimize unsold older units later.

Third, many sources including AT&T CEO implied indirectly that Iphone is coming sooner. Nobody knows when is sooner but WWDC which is in June, is a good guess.

June is always a good month to release hot item. It reduces the risk of out-of-stock scenario as the demand is moderately strong, not as strong as end of year holiday season, but still adequate to gather needed media attention.

There’s lot more rumors but I guess all the reading will point to one conclusion; 3G Iphone is imminent and we all shall wait for it.
