The whole buzz about the iPhone 4 and when it’s reaching Malaysian shore has come to an end. That’s because the iPhone 4 is already in Malaysia and Maxis will have their official launch for the iPhone 4 tonight.
I am as excited as everyone else who have waited long for the iPhone 4 to be launched by Maxis Berhad. In conjunction with this launch, Maxis will be hosting an “invitation only” event that features a truly interactive programme that brings out the very best of the iPhone 4 experience.
If you didn’t get an invite, do not despair. Watch this space as I will be updating live from the launch event.

DiGi launched their iPhone 4 packages 6 hours before Maxis did. Many did comparison and the summary is, Maxis gives the best price for iPhone 4 with higher monthly commitments and DiGi provides a much affordable monthly commitment but higher price for the iPhone 4.
I personally looking for an iPhone 4 only right now. So given the choice, I will stick with Maxis for iPhone 4.
