The wait is finally over. Apple has officially announced that the iPhone 5 is coming to more countries this month with Malaysian release next Friday, 14th December. South Korea will be getting it first this coming Friday 7th December while the other countries including Malaysia, Philippines, China and Taiwan having it a week later.
In terms of pricing, there shouldn’t be any difference from the iPhone 4S when it was first launched in Malaysia, starting from RM2,199 for the 16GB version. Telco bundling is expected from the big 3 telcos and registration of interest should start anytime soon. For those that prefer to buy one without contract, we are expecting the Apple Store to sell the iPhone 5 unlocked without contract.
