HTC Flyer with Maxis for as low as RM199

Posted:  April 15, 2011   By:    14 comments   


Maxis and HTC today announced the launch of the HTC Flyer. Here are some of the updates at the event.

The HTC Flyer will be priced at RM2,499 outright with market availability starting from May 12 at all Maxis Centres and Maxis Exclusive Partners. Maxis has yet to reveal plans and packages for the Flyer but have indicated the that the Flyer will be offered for as low as RM199 with contract.

MCMC regulations states that an operator can’t offer contracts for more than 24 months. If we take that into consideration and assuming that the monthly bundled plans are reasonable, this is one good deal for a rather interesting tablet device.

Stay tune for more updates.

Update: We spoke to Maxis COO, Jean Pascal Van Overbeke about the RM199 contract purchase price for the HTC Flyer. He confirms that there is no typo and that Maxis will indeed offer the HTC Flyer for RM199. When asked whether there is a catch, he answered “There is no catch”. Watch it all here.

    You never know if the 30% tariff will be slapped on Apple when the iPad 2 comes it. It's unlikely, since for some reason, iPhones and iPads are immune to the Malaysia's 30% import tariff, HTC devices are not.

    This is why so many devices are 30+% cheaper in Singapore.
