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.

UPDATE: Maxis clarifies via twitter that HTC Desire Z gets 2 year warranty.
On the bundled pricing, the Desire Z goes for RM1649 over 12 months, RM1599 over 18 months or RM1499 over 24 months contract of a bolt-on data plan on top of Value Plus postpaid plan. The Desire Z is covered with a 2 year warranty as confirmed by Maxis via twitter.
Interestingly the Desire Z comes only with a 12 months warranty which is less compared to the older HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire that had 24 months warranty.
Also making an apperance is the rugged Motorola Defy which was just launched in Malaysia 2 days ago. In case you missed it, do read our Motorola Defy first impressions. On contract, it goes RM1299 over 12 months, RM1149 over 18 months and RM999 over 24 months duration.
At the same time, Maxis also has started bundling entry level Androids which includes the Huawei Ideos U8150 and Samsung Galaxy 3.

When Nokia N8 was launched, it only came in 3 colours: silver, green and dark grey. Now Maxis has updated their website with anodised blue and orange colour options as well. Contract price remains unchanged at RM999 over 24 months, RM1149 over 18 months and RM1299 over 12 months and it is for those who bolt on a data plan of 500MB, 1.5GB and 3GB.
For more information, check out Maxis’s Nokia N8 page.
UPDATE: Maxis made a mistake with the pricing, the Nokia N8 is offered from RM999, not RM899 as advertised.
With the coming Deepavali Festival, Maxis is lighting it up with a special giveaway for handset bundling. They are giving out FREE NX1 Spore Speakers with purchase of Nokia N8, BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Wildfire, Samsung Galaxy S and Motorola Backflip.
Prices of handsets remain unchanged over 24 months contract except for Nokia N8 which is now on offer for
RM899RM999. That’s additional RM100 off from the normal 24 months contract pricing. This offer ends 7th November 2010.
For more details, check out the Deepavali offer page.
Maxis has finally revealed its Nokia N8 bundling on their site. It goes for as low as RM999 over 24 months data contract on top of existing Value Plan 50 plans and above. If 24 months is too long, there’s a 18 months and 12 months option that offers the device for RM1149 and RM1299 respectively. Maxis data plans starts from RM58/month for 500MB and up to RM88/month for 3GB quota.
Nokia N8 is the current top of the range Symbian^3 device you could get at the moment with a retail price of RM1699. Running the latest Symbian^3 OS, this would be the game changer for Nokia to face off the likes of iPhones, Androids and most recently Windows Phone 7 devices.

HTC today has announced the arrival of HTC Aria, a new addition to its line up of Android devices. It was first revealed as an AT&T exclusive device in the US and now it has finally arrived in Malaysia. This joins the recent Android offering of HTC Wildfire, Legend and Desire.
The HTC Aria’s specification is quite identical with the slightly older HTC Legend. It features a 3.2″ touch screen with a decent 320×480 HVGA resolution but there’s no mention if it is using SLCD or AMOLED. It is also powered with a 600MHz processor, 512MB of ROM and 384MB of RAM. For expandable storage it comes with removable microSD slot. The HTC Aria comes bundled with a 2GB microSD in the box.
The rest of the bells and whistles are standard such as Internal GPS, G-Sensor, 5.0MP Camera, 3G with HSPA support up to 7.2Mbps, WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support. The OS installed is Android 2.1 Eclair with our favourite HTC Sense.
Strangely, the HTC Aria uses a smaller 1200mAh Lithium-Ion battery which is lower than the 1300mAh version used on the HTC Wildfire and Legend. So in a nutshell, this looks like a HTC Legend with a new design and a lower capacity battery.
The HTC Aria will retail at RM1799 at participating dealers and it will also be made available at DiGi Centres & Specialised stores in early September 2010. No bundling details have been revealed and we believe this will be similar to DiGi’s HTC Legend bundling on DG Smart Plan.
