We’ve gotten ourselves a BlackBerry Torch at the Celcom sale last Friday and we’re in the midst of reviewing the unit now. In the meantime we’d like to find out from you if there’s anything you like to know about the device.
If you have any questions about the BlackBerry Torch or would like us to cover some features of the device in the review. Please let us know. We’ll try to make it happen.
As always, thanks for dropping by.
Celcom Axiata is expecting to sell 10,000 BlackBerry Torch by end of this year. That is about 167 Torches a day! They also claim to be the market leader for BlackBerry in Malaysia which they boasts a user base of over 100,000 BlackBerry users which makes up to 51% of the market share.
What’s more interesting is that Celcom also plans to launch the new BlackBerry Bold in a few months time. The Bold in question should be the latest BlackBerry Bold 9780 which was just announced yesterday. Considering we are about 2 months until the year is out, we’re expecting them to launch or initiate another “registration of interest” somewhere in January.

So how much is it on Celcom? If you’re on Celcom Exec 50 the Torch goes for RM1688 with Blackberry Lite or RM1588 with BlackBerry Pro. For the heavy users, the Torch is yours for RM1388 on Celcom Exec 250 + BIS. If you don’t want to be tied down, there’s a no commitment RRP price of RM2188. This is cheaper than Maxis‘s promotional BlackBerry Torch RRP price of RM2299.
More details at Celcom Exec Blackberry page here.
UPDATE: BlackBerry Torch firesale details now on Celcom Blackberry page.
Celcom is doing a fire sale for the BlackBerry Torch at La Bodega, Pavilion KL which is scheduled at 3PM. However there’s already a queue of about 100 people at time of posting.
The first 10 can get the torch for RM8 with the next 100 at RM488 and the subsequent 100 at RM888. If you join the queue now, it is still possible to get a RM488 or RM888 unit.
We’re still not sure if this is an outright purchase or whether it is tied to a contract plan. This promo price is tied with 12 months contract with RM300 upfront payment required which is rebated back in the next monthly bills. More details at Celcom’s page.
