Maxis, Malaysia’s most prolific telco when it comes to Android devices has started another recruitment drive for Maxis10 Review program. This time is the HTC Desire S as announced via twitter. Following the pattern of the past few Maxis 10 program, the launch of such device should be happening pretty soon in matter of weeks time. Just a few days back, they did the same drive for the HTC Flyer.
In the span of less than three weeks we are seeing three top-end Android devices coming into the market and the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc is arguably one of the most desirable flagship Androids coming our way.
This announcement puts a damper on DiGi’s incredible deal offering 300 units of the HTC Incredible S for RM599 with a 24-months contract that’s happening tomorrow. It’s reasonable to think that the people who have made the decision to buy the HTC Incredible S because of DiGi’s offer would now think twice.
Should they grab the Incredible S now and make the most out of the offer or should they wait for the Xperia arc to be launched and compare the two?
If it were us, we’d wait for the Xperia arc. For one it looks good, Better than the Incredible S or the Nexus S. Then, there is the Sony Exmor R equipped 8.1MP camera to look forward to, and not forgetting the 4.2-inch Reality Display with Sony Mobile BRAVIA.
If Maxis can price the Xperia arc right. This could very well be the Android to get.
