Many of my friends and readers are still asking when the iPhone 5 will make its way to Malaysia. Well, Apple website has already revealed that the iPhone 5 will be available in October and as of the official date in Malaysia, it will be on October 26 – at least that’s what our local news is reporting.

Maxis Berhad and DiGi have already begin to offer Nano SIM cards to their customers. The Nano SIM is almost a quarter size of a normal SIM card and iPhone 5 is the first smartphone to introduce the use of Nano SIM in Malaysia.

According to Maxis Berhad, a Nano SIM costs RM25 and it was made available since September 24 at Maxis centers in KLCC, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sunway Pyramid and The Gardens Mall in the Klang Valley, Queensbay Mall in Penang and Danga Bay in Johor Bahru.

DiGi too has announced of the offering of Nano SIM since 26 September. The Nano SIM will be FREE for new DG Smart Plan and DG Postpaid Plus sign ups.  And for existing customers, it will cost RM20 fee for a swap to the new Nano SIM. The Nano SIMs will be available across 250 DiGi outlets nationwide by early October 2012.

Apparently, what I read from our local mainstream media is wrong. Sorry folks, guess we'll have to wait a little longer.

Yeah, I hate that too.

I had a screenshot of the page but it was in my other PC that crashed. However, Malay Mail reported it quite some time ago.
