Maxis brings out its BlackBerry 9900 plans

Maxis is late out of the starting blocks with this one but it’s always better late than never. With not much fanfare, Maxis has just released details on its BlackBerry 9900 plans allowing you to purchase the device for as low as RM1,390 with a contract sign-up.

Only two plans are on offer with the Bold 9900. The Maxis BIS Pro gives you 3GB of data for RM90/month and the Maxis BIS Standards brings 500MB of data to the Bold 9900 for RM55/month. With the BIS Standard, if you sign-up with a contract you also get an additional 500MB free for the duration of your contact with Maxis.

Oddly enough there are no additional incentives to encourage users to sign-up with the introduction of the Bold 9900 to Maxis.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 Malaysia launch September 15

BlackBerry users, it’s time to sell-off/give away your old Blackberrys and start saving up for the Bold 9900. It’s official, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 will hit stores September 19 15 and here’s the best part, you don’t need to sign for a contract with a telco to purchase one.

On launch day, the Bold 9900 will be available for purchase from authorised dealers outright, however there’s no word on pricing yet at the moment.

If you’re still keen to get the Bold 9900 with a contract, Celcom, DiGi and Maxis, have already opened registrations of interest. We’re expecting U Mobile to offer the device soon as well. Three telcos opening ROI simultaneously for the same device, this is something you don’t see very often.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the first Bold to feature a touchscreen interface and it is quite possibly the best Bold ever. At 10.5mm thin, it’s definitely the thinnest Bold ever. In fact, the 9900 is the thinnest and most powerful smartphone BlackBerry has ever produced with a much improved BlackBerry 7 OS, a 1GHz processor, 8GB of on-board memory, NFC support and a 5MP camera with 720p video recording capability that’s the best we’ve seen on a BlackBerry device.

If there’s only one BlackBerry that we can recommend to you, this is it.

Maxis starts BlackBerry Bold 9900 pre-registration


Finally some signs that BlackBerry Bold 9900 is coming to Malaysia. Maxis today has commenced its registration of interest for BlackBerry’s new Bold device which now comes with a 2.8″ touch screen.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is RIM’s answer to narrow the gap with its rival smart phones today. The specs of having a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB RAM and 8GB of internal storage does seem promising. Earlier on we’ve seen a video sample at HD 720p which is actually pretty good. No pricing details are available yet but they better priced it competitively as most flagship devices are below RM2300 mark.
