UPDATE: Maxis has revised its iPad Air pricing making it similar to Apple retailer pricing.
The Malaysian iPad Air outright pricing has been revealed by Maxis this morning from as a low as RM2,049 for the 16GB model. Since it is being offered on contract, they are only offering the WiFi + Cellular version which supports 4G LTE connectivity. The iPad Air with 4G connectivity support is priced as follows:
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 16GB –
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 32GB –
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 64GB –
Maxis doesn’t seem to offer its largest 128GB option for the iPad Air. Compared to last year’s iPad 4, the new iPad Air costs RM150 more for the 16GB/64GB model while the 32GB model is RM100 more. The price difference between the iPad Air’s 32GB and 64GB is quite a huge one with a RM350 price gap.
