For the PC Fair this weekend, BlackBerry is offering a pretty good deal with 50% off the RRP on your second BlackBerry purchase. That’s right when you buy a BlackBerry device you’re entitled to purchase the second unit for only half of price. The catch is that the offer is limited to the first 30 customers/day (10 per device) and one offer per customer.
In addition to that, BlackBerry is offering “free accessories” worth RM264. We’re not sure what these accessories are and its only for the BlackBerry device purchased at full price only.
For more info hit up the source link.
To upgrade, existing owners of the BlackBerry Curve 3G and BlackBerry Bold 9700 can connect their smartphone to their computer and go to ap.blackberry.com/blackberry6 to download the update.
Unlike Apple, where subsequent updates means less and less new features being introduced to older models, we assume that the OS update for BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Curve 3G users will offer the full set of features and enhancements that come with BlackBerry 6. If that is the case, it would feel almost like getting a new phone.
BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Curve 3G users, let us know how the OS upgrade turned out for you.
U Mobile is on a roll today after announcing its long awaited HSPA+ service. Now they have also announced a range of phone bundlings that’s tied with different plans and contracts.
Some of the bundle offers are the same such as the BlackBerry Curve 9300 and Bold 9780 going for RM90/month and RM142/month respectively with 12 months contract of U Mobile BIS Plan. The U Mobile Huawei MiFi too is the same at RM210 with U Broadband plan.
What’s new is that U Mobile is offering an Android device, the HTC Wildfire for only RM199 with 24 months contract of U Premium Plan. We have no idea about this new U Premium Plan and it is not even on U Mobile’s website. In the previous bundling plan for Nokias, there was a PAYU Voice plan which is added on top of an existing UB68 data plan that looks similar with DG Smart Plan.
For those who want a cheap phone without contract, there’s the U Mobile SOU which supports 2 SIM and priced at only RM230 outright. For that price, it includes a U Mobile Prepaid starter pack, a RM50 top up voucher plus an extra battery.
Head after the break for more bundles of Nokia devices which includes the Nokia 7230, Nokia E5, Nokia X3 Touch & Type and Nokia C7.

BlackBerry Malaysia has announced that the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and BlackBerry Curve 9300 now comes in 2 new colour options respectively. The BlackBerry Torch now comes in Red and White while the Curve 3G comes in Bright Chrome and Pink option.
It is mentioned that the new BlackBerry colours are available from carriers and authorised distributors in Malaysia. This means that the Red BlackBerry Torch is no longer exclusive to Celcom and should be available from DiGi, Maxis and phone dealers as well. Last week, Maxis was the first to announce the availability of the White BlackBerry Torch.
Head after the break to see all colour options.

If you’ve been looking for a BlackBerry without contract but couldn’t afford to fork out a huge sum one go, SenQ offers a solution. They are offering the BlackBerry Bold 9700, Curve 8520 and the latest Curve 3G 9300 with a 3 year installment plan.
With this offer, the Curve 8520 is going for RM29.83/month while the newer Curve 3G (9300) can be yours for RM36.08/month. Meanwhile, the higher range BlackBerry Bold 9700 goes for as low as RM52.05/month. To make the deal worth the duration, SenQ is also giving warranty up to 3 years as well. They are also throwing in a Free BackBerry Swivel holster worth RM132.
Honestly we think paying 3 years for a phone is just too long as you would probably changed phones by then. Since they mention the duration is “up to” 3 years, we assume that you could opt for a lower duration say 12 or 24 months.
We believe there is a market for such offer as this makes it easier to own a BlackBerry than ever before. A possible taker for this offer may be likely to go for a prepaid service like Xpax that offers as low as RM0.50 for basic BBM service. So RM15 per month (30 days) for BBM and RM30 monthly for a Curve 8520 is pretty affordable for the masses.
This offer is valid until 31st October 2010. If you’re interested, check out the full details over at SenQ.
DiGi has finally revealed the pricing for the BlackBerry Curve 9300 (Curve 3G) on DG Smart Plan. It goes for an attractive RM759 over 24 months contract or RM899 over 12 months contract. This comes after a while of waiting when Celcom and Maxis had announced their pricing earlier.
Strangely, there’s something different for DG SmartPlan. If you noticed on the device, there’s a little highlight that says “Add-on RM10/month to enjoy BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)”. This also appears on the Curve 8520 page but not on the Bold 9700. Did DiGi just started charging additional RM10 for BlackBerry users? That makes it RM78/month.
Originally the RM68/month subscription came with Unlimited Internet with BIS included. This even allows you to tether via USB. Looks like new subscribers today would need to pay more. We will try to confirm this with DiGi.

Celcom is giving a exclusive offer on the BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300) tomorrow at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. They are offering the BlackBerry Curve 3G for only RM388 for the first 150 customers that visits their booth outside [email protected]
No details on the terms or contract plans to be eligible so you would need to find out yourself at the roadshow. If you’ve been eyeing for a BlackBerry Curve 3G, this is a good opportunity to grab it for cheap. It is only for tomorrow 18th September.

Maxis has finally released its pricing and offer for the BlackBerry Curve 9300 (aka Curve 3G). Celcom had released their BlackBerry Curve 3G offers 2 days back while DiGi is still pathetically doing Registration of Interest.
The BlackBerry Curve 9300 itself retails at RM1299 and instead of slashing the device price cheaper, Maxis used a different way of bundling from the rest. For postpaid, the BlackBerry Curve is offered at RM1659 and it comes bundled with 12 months BIS Advanced subscription of RM360. For Hotlink Prepaid, it goes for RM1479 bundled with 6 months of BIS plan.
At first glance, it seems that Maxis is having an expensive deal but what you’ll get is cheaper BIS subscription for paying upfront. For instance, the postpaid offer comes with BIS Advanced which normally costs RM120/month. For this offer, you’re only paying RM360 for 12 months which is a total savings of RM1080. So with that subscription savings factored in, the BlackBerry Curve would cost a mere RM579.
For prepaid, it comes with 6 months BIS subscription which costs RM98/month. In this offer, 6 months subscription is bundled in for a mere RM180. So you’ll get a total savings of RM408 from this bundle, making the device costing RM1071 after savings. It is weird that Maxis mentions that the saving is worth RM480, this could be a typo by their web designer. Don’t worry Maxis, DiGi made a bigger mistake on their website during its reveal.
What’s even more weird is that Hotlink mentions the 6 months of BIS is FREE when it is actually charged on top of the retail price of RM1299. Looks like Hotlink and Maxis team are not in sync in terms of communication.
While Celcom gives cheaper device outright, Maxis gives you more savings off the normal subscription on the long run. The only con is that you would need to fork out extra upfront which isn’t a bad thing considering the amount you will be saving.

While DiGi is merely starting its ROI for the new BlackBerry Curve 9300, Celcom is going full swing with the device. Celcom Exec 50 and Exec 250 customers can get the Curve 9300 for RM688 with a RM250 monthly commitment. If that’s too high, the device goes for RM788 or RM888 for a lesser monthly commitment of RM148 and RM118 respectively. The commitment plans are on a 12 months contract.

You see, the BlackBerry Curve 9300 comes with a more spaced out keyboard and an optical trackpad. The BlackBerry featured on DiGi’s ROI page has a trackball and a different keyboard and is in fact an older BlackBerry Curve 8900 that’s two generation behind the Curve 3G.
