With the full availability of Samsung Galaxy S III drawing near, Celcom has finally revealed its bundled pricing for Samsung’s flagship smart phone. The Galaxy S III can be yours this Thursday from RM1,398. The outright price is RM2,199 for the 16GB version.
On Celcom, it is offered with a shorter choice of 12 months and 18 months contract with Celcom Exec 50 with 1GB data, 3GB data and Celcom Exec 250 which comes with 5GB of data. As comparison, DiGi is offering only 24 months contract duration, which isn’t ideal for those that don’t want to be tied for long duration. More details of Celcom Galaxy S III plan here.
In conjunction wit the launch of the Galaxy, Celcom will be organising roadshows offering some interesting deals from May 31 to June 3 and promos at the following locations:
Thanks to @tcmean1 for the heads up!
Earlier this morning, @baliriot has alerted that Celcom is doing another special launch promo where the Galaxy S III can be yours for only RM888. The condition is that you’ll need to wear blue at their roadshow event to be entitled. It is also likely to be tied with a contract as well.
Head after the break for the print ad on the RM888 promo.

The sexy Motorola RAZR is expected to receive its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update by Q2 2012. While it has yet to be rolled out, Motorola has released several videos to get you prepared for the latest changes that come with its ICS update.
First thing you’ll notice is the unlock screen which now has been improved with shortcut access to messaging, camera and phone. This matches the earlier leaked screenshots of a Motorola RAZR running Android 4.0.4. Browsing for apps and the notification bar is stock standard which Motorola claims the new battery indicator gives better reading for battery levels.
In the camera department, they have made some enhancements which includes a time lapse mode. It now also allows you to take pictures while recording a video, just like the HTC One X and the Galaxy S III. As expected, Face Unlock is included as well. Overall the update looks good and hopefully they roll it out to Malaysian users by next month.
Head after the jump for the videos or head to Droid Life for the full list.
UPDATE: DiGi has added more plan options and shorter contract tenure for its Galaxy S III bundle. Details here.
DiGi has started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The operator puts the recommended retail price of the device at RM2,199, slightly above our RM2,100 price prediction. The Galaxy S III is available from DiGi for as low as RM999 — as the earlier clues suggest — with a 24-months contract.
This time around they are only offering DiGi Smart Plan 68 and 88 with only 24 months contract duration. Bundled pricing as follows:
DG Smart Plan 68 (24 months) – RM1,149
DG Smart Plan 88 (24 months) – RM999
In addition to the pre-order, DiGi has also confirmed its roadshow locations to promote the market launch of the latest and greatest smartphone from Samsung and it looks like gadget fans in Johor Bahru and Penang will be able to get in on the action as well.
Following DiGi’s pre-order, we’re expecting Celcom and Maxis to show their cards in the coming days as well. From what we know, the planned May 31 market availability of the Galaxy S III is still solid, so we don’t expect operators to make the device available earlier than that. But if you do see original Samsung Galaxy S III units on sale before May 31, do let us know.
In the meantime, head on over to DiGi Store Online for full details on their Galaxy S III offerings.
