RM199 for HTC Flyer from Maxis?
HTC Flyer, as low as RM199 with Maxis.
Yeah. It’s real. There’s even a Youtube video of Maxis Chief Operation Officer (COO), Jean Pascal Van Oberveke verifying this news.
Jean Pascal’s answered straight to the point without much hesitation: “The package will be competitive and interesting, otherwise we wouldn’t do it. We don’t want to have it (the HTC Flyer) stuck you know, we want to sell it.”
HTC Flyer is being sold at Recommended Retail Price (RRP) RM2,499. With this RM199 HTC Flyer from Maxis, this is a very generous discount, roughly 90%, discount or RM2,300 discount. HTC Flyer will be available on all Maxis centers and Maxis Exclusive Partners on Thursday, May 12, 2011.
My initial reaction when I saw this was, ‘This must be a hoax to attract extra traffic.’ But after watching the Youtube video, I said to myself, ‘Hell man, it’s REAL!’ So, Maxis is finally doing something right this time. 😛
You might be worried that Maxis might tie you down a high monthly commitment fee but as what Maxis COO has said in the Youtube video, the package for HTC Flyer will be competitive. Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has set a law stating that telco operators cannot offer contracts more than 24 months. So, don’t worry that Maxis will ask you to commit for 32 months, 36 months or maybe the next 10 years of your life for a discount of RM2,300. 🙂
I really wonder what will Maxis offer. More information on Maxis HTC Flyer package will be unveiled on May 12, 2011. Stay tuned!
Hopefully, Maxis will give me a chance to review this Android tablet through their Maxis10 program. 🙂
What’s your say?
Well, the launch of HTC Flyer has some issue with the availability of stock, so it’s delayed.
