Default new information

After much annoying conversations with Celcom and even turning up at their branch for 1/2hr, I finally got the answer that the Blackberry Bold is out in Malaysia on the 15/9/08.

Even if they tell you the launch date is today (2/9/08), they just mean that the launch date of the PLANS is today. The physical phones are only available on the 15th. Also, the plans are only for CORPORATE users. Even asking for the reason as to why I should pre-book seemed tough for the customer service people. I can only hope that they'll put aside phones for those who pre-booked it.

The official price of the phone from Celcom is RM2,499. Not sure what other price there is if you take a plan. But I think that's pretty much the set price from them. The Maxis website is just as unclear as to the date that they will release the phone and how much they are going to charge for it.

I got all excited about it today for nothing :(

Guess it's another 2 week wait. Now I just need to concentrate on finding a buyer for my existing phone!!
