Right on cue operators have started opening up Registration of Interest for the iPhone 5 after Apple made the official announcement that the latest iPhone will be available in more than 50 countries this month.
Maxis is the first out of the gate to open its registration of interest and you can expect Celcom and DiGi to start this week as well. With the advantage of its own online store, DiGi is very likely able to put an iPhone 5 in your hand without the need to stand in line but typical of Maxis, you can also expect that the operator will start selling the device from midnight December 14. Also, we have a feeling Maxis will offer a contract extension for existing iPhone owners still on contract to upgrade to the iPhone 5 but this has not been confirmed by Maxis at the moment. You can register for your iPhone 5 from Maxis here.
