An Apple iPhone in Malaysia

I was having lunch with my colleagues at some restaurant in The Weld today, my boss joint us after that. He walked into the restaurant with the earphone and it looks like he has an iPod attached with him.

After sat down, he take out that “ipod”, put on the table. That “ipod” is actually is his new Apple iPhone bought from US. Oh gosh, suddenly everyone silent for a while.. “iPhone…… iPhone bla bla…” As usual, he started to show off that cool gadget which tempted you to have a touch on it.

That device is damn nice, sleek, thin, stylish, fast… Geram when you see it… I think most of you know that iPhone is only available in US right now. And you have to sign up some package with AT&T or Cingular in order to activate the phone. Lots of people are waiting for the crack/hack on activation. If you can’t wait to play with it, can do what my boss did, sign up a package with Cingular and roam it in Malaysia.. LoL.. Which cost you a lot!

Seriously, the device is damn “chun”, only can get it in Malaysia Q3 next year. Just save and wait, I want that cool shit too!

  1. Hahaha………Must be that same up we saw the other day on 18th Floor…………Well now you see now you don’t…….

  2. The iphone is hopeless. No 3G/hsdpa – just edge data speeds. No qwerty keypad. In this day and era, why would i buy a non-3G phone for more than 500usd? Why would i buy a phone without physical keys? try to use the Nokia E90, Sony Ericsson P1i, HTC tytn, Samsung Blackjack or motorola q9 – how the hell would you conveniently type email on the go, manipulate your appointments/calender etc?? Sorry, the i-phone is not for me.

  3. Hi Paul! I am a Malaysian currently in US now. If you are still interested in getting the iPhone (unlocked and ready to be used with DIGI, MAXIS etc), i can help you get one at a way lower price that your boss has bought. Drop me a line at hoeylit@hotmail.com.

  8. i’m using htc touch..much more lighter..smaller..sleeker..can direct upload n download from pc..no software required..wifi..mp3..more serious than iphone yet cooler..ahaks..

  9. Typically kiasu of Asians who need to show some sense of power and cloak their low self esteem by buying an iPhone. Let the bosses and those who need to project importance bask in their glory by possessing this uber cool machine. By mid year, when the iPhone launches in Malaysia, they are going to have to look for another new toy to boost their morale.

    If you’re going to own an iPhone, own it for the right reasons – enjoyment – the very essence of what an Apple product is.
