On the Nokia N9 page, the device is offered as low as RM968 with 18 months contract of Celcom Exec 250 which comes with 5GB of data. The lowest entry plan is Celcom Exec 50 + Mobile Internet Basic of RM38/month that offers the device for RM1,348 on 18 months contract.
In addition to the offer, Celcom is also offering several units for RM999 for those that registered with them. The offer read “Be the first to own it and flaunt it. Register with us before 15th October”. The conditions wasn’t clearly stated and under the T&C, it shows packages are tied with 12 months contract of BlackBerry plans. So no idea currently on what plan/contract period is tied to this RM999 offer. Great work Celcom on your fantastic website!
UPDATE: Celcom has updated the T&C, mentioning that it is tied to Celcom Exec 50 + mobile internet or Celcom Exec 250 Plan (“Package Plan”) for a period of twelve (12) months. How this works is that from 7th till 15th October, Celcom will draw a lucky winner which will get the N9 at only RM999 which is tied with a shorter period.
As N9 official sales starts today, it appears that Celcom is only selling it on 15th October onwards based on the RM999 promo page. So if you are looking to own a N9 on contract, DiGi is the only choice now.
We’ve just gotten the official word from Nokia Malaysia. The Nokia N9 will hit stores this Friday, 7 October.
Available in black, cyan and magenta, with two storage options to choose from, the Nokia N9 retails for RM1,799 and RM2,088 outright for the 16GB and 64GB versions respectively.
Last week, we discovered that Celcom has started teasing that it will be coming up with plans for the N9 but at the moment there’s no word from the operator on when they will be releasing their Nokia N9 plans.
With the iPhone 4S a known quantity, will you pick the Nokia N9 over the iOS device?
Celcom has put up a Nokia N9 teaser on its website. It’s not big secret that Celcom (and DiGi) will be the operators that will offer plans for the very interesting Nokia N9. This was announced during the Nokia N9 event held earlier this month. The only question is, when will the device be available and how much subsidy will the operators offer.
The Nokia N9 will retail from RM1,799 for the 16GB version and RM2,088 for the 64GB version without contract and is expected to be in stores withing the first two weeks of October. Celcom’s tease tells us that the launch is going to be soon, it’s going to be be grand and Celcom could be ahead of DiGi in launching the N9.
