UPDATE: Celcom reveals official iPhone 4S plans.
Update: Ok so here’s what we’ve gathered so far. Our theory of Celcom opening pre-orders tomorrow being true is increasing likelihood. Operators are on high alert at the moment so we’re hard pressed to get any useful information from any of them at the moment but we see Celcom making the first move with Maxis following quickly after that. whatever it is, expect iPhone 4S fever to start at the stroke of midnight tonight. In the meantime, keep your browser locked on to SoyaCincau.com for updates. If we hear anything, we’ll let you know. If you hear anything, let us know too.
Officially the iPhone 4S will be available in Malaysia on December 16 from Celcom, DiGi and Maxis but Celcom says it has a leg up over the other two and will be offering the device as early as December 9. That is this Friday.
Aside from the date, no other information is forthcoming from Celcom and we’re not really sure how Celcom is going to pull this off considering Apple enforces very strict guidelines over how the iPhone is marketed. Not adhering to said guidelines could result in harsh reprimand from Apple to the offending operator.
It could be a pre-order exercise where you sign-up for a plan, pay some deposit and get the iPhone 4S on December 16 skipping the long lines and wait time. But that’s just a guess right now. In any case its just a couple of days away till everything becomes clear.
Thanks @jnoathan for the tip!
