So Maxis has announced it on twitter, the so called big announcement for today. It is not the iPhone 4 but it is actually a price slash on iPhone 3GS for its iPhone Special Mid Year Sale where you can get between RM200-RM600 discount over its original pricing.
This applies across the iValue 1,2,3 & 4 plans and iData 3 over 24 months. iPhone 3GS prices are unchanged for iData 1, 2 and Prepaid plans. Surprisingly only the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 3GS are on promotion and there’s no change for the iPhone 3G 8GB.
Compared to DiGi’s previous price slash which merely lowers the monthly subscription fee, Maxis slashed the actual price of the iPhones. This mid-year promotion is valid until 31st July 2010 which raised some questions. What happens after 31st July? It would be weird if iPhone prices are increased back to normal but it could mean something bigger. We may be wrong but could it be the iPhone 4 be announced by then together with the iPhone 3GS 8GB? We will find out more later.
