U Mobile, another 3G operator in Malaysia has extended its existing domestic roaming agreement with Celcom Axiata for another 3 years. Being one of the youngest telco, U Mobile has limited 3G coverage within the Klang Valley, Ipoh, Seremban and Johor. In areas where U Mobile doesn’t cover, it uses Celcom’s nationwide coverage but only for voice and sms. However it was mentioned that data service might be introduced on Domestic roaming later this year. We believe speeds while on domestic roaming would be EDGE or GPRS.
The agreement with Celcom was first signed in 2007, making it the first ever nationwide Domestic Roaming partnership in Malaysia. Then in December last year, U Mobile signed another domestic roaming agreement with DiGi which some expected this as a replacement for Celcom. With the recent announcement of extending agreement with Celcom, we wonder what happened to the roaming agreement with DiGi?

(Update 04092010) Alright let’s get straight to the point, we screwed up on the MicroUSB port bit in this review. After much rummaging through the interweb , the Nokia N8 does use MicroUSB for its data connectivity. Perhaps during our rush to get as much material as we can from the short time we had with the N8, we got the ports all mixed up. We’re sorry about this and thanks everyone for correcting the error.
Nokia Malaysia was kind enough to invite us to play around with what they are claiming as their most innovative smartphone ever. Yes, ladies and gents we got some quality hands-on time with the Nokia N8 and here’s our first impression of the device.
