Those who’ve indicated their interest for the Nexus S with Maxis last week would have gotten an email from the operator today indicating the price of the device, and would’ve known by now the full pricing details and launch date of new Google phone.

For those who didn’t registered your interest, do worry, we got your back because we’ve registered our interest in the device as well. Here are the details of the upcoming Nexus S from Maxis.

The Nexus S is available from Maxis from March 18 onwards and will retail for RM2,499 outright. The launch is this Friday, the same day as the HTC Incredible S launch. We speculated earlier that it is very likely for the Incredible S be launched with a telco partner and we named Maxis as the likely partner. With the telco now launching the Nexus S on Friday, could this mean that the HTC Incredible S will be launched with DiGi instead?

We have no confirmation on either. All that we know is that Friday will be a very busy day for the local gadget junkies.

Probably cheaper to buy it from BestBuy, then use a forwarding service to ship it to Malaysia. It works out to around 1.7k I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.


    Yes you're right. On Best Buy the Nexus S retails for US$530 which is about RM1,620 excluding shipping, taxes and what not. Still way cheaper than the local RRP of RM2,499.

    Even with all the shipping and taxes included, an RM880 margin (US RRP – Malaysia RRP) is too much.


This is freaking expensive. With 12 months of contract, it's more expensive than what BestBuy is selling right now.
