Spotted on PaulTan’s blog on the official launch of a new Proton Satria Neo R3 lotus racing is a photo of Maxis logo on the nose of the Lotus Racing F1 car. This could signal Maxis being a sponsor for Lotus Racing F1 team.
More details here.
Update: It is not uncommon for teams to strike sponsorship deals specific for a particullar race so we think this Maxis thing could just be for the upcoming 2010 FORMULA 1 PETRONAS MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX happening this weekend!
Update #2: Maxis has in fact signed up as sponsors for Lotus Racing F1. No indication or the duration of the sponsorship though but Maxis head honcho Sandip Das had this to say: “This is the pride of the nation and as the leading and most innovative Malaysian Telco, which is also globally respected, we wanted to be a part of this wonderful Malaysia moment,”.
Big boss man Das also said that: “Maxis’ commitment to Lotus Racing promises to deliver a more integrated F1 expereince to customers with immediate access to the latest racing news and information via their mobile phones, wherever and whenever they want,”.
Would be interesting to find out what this is actually as this is already officially supported F1’s official site HERE.
A day before its official revealing of DiGi iPhone plans, we managed to get a copy of the leaked iPhone brochure.
From the leak brochure, we understand DiGi is offering iDiGi 88, iDiGi 138 and iDiGi 238 which rivals Maxis’s iValue Plans. Even the plan numbers 138/238 sound similar to Maxis old postpaid plans 10 years ago. What it offers nearly doubles of Maxis’s offering in terms of Data, bundled SMS and MMS.
If paying up front for the phone is too heavy, DiGi also has EPP plans for the iPhone that breaks it up in month installments.
High resolution brochures below:
Please take note that official price plans are only officially released tomorrow and may subject to last minute changes by DiGi.
Do check the official DiGi iPhone page tomorrow.

Those who pre-register for an iPhone from DiGi earlier should be receiving an email from DiGi soon.
The collection should be starting this coming weekend and also depending on the pick-up point selected in the registration.
There will be special payment plans will be available for Maybank, CIMB Bank, HSBC, Citibank and Ambank credit card holders.
If purchase is made by cash outright, the iPhone prices as follows:
Outright purchase price is similar to Maxis however what we’re anticipated is the iPhone + postpaid bundle plans which is expected to be announced tomorrow.
