Celcom offers Nokia E7 from RM1108

Celcom too is offering the Nokia E7 and carries a cheaper bundled price of RM1108. No details have been revealed on the plan and the promo on their website is merely driving people to their PC Expo roadshow at Midvalley this weekend until 6th March 2011.

Like its past bundling of devices, most likely the RM1108 E7 price is tied to a Celcom Exec 250 plan and we believe there are other contract options on Celcom Exec 50 as well. As comparison, Maxis offers the Nokia E7 from RM1499 with a 2 year contract.
