Maxis’s Samsung Galaxy S pricing unveiled

Looks like Maxis is now the country’s most prolific telco at the moment.

Just a month back it launched and had exclusive selling rights for the HTC Desire. Just recently, the people running it’s official Twitter account have just confirmed with us that Maxis will be bringing in the 8GB iPhone 3GS and today, ahead of the official launch, Maxis has revealed the subsidized pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S.

We mentioned earlier that it will be close to what Maxis is offering for the HTC Desire and we we’re not far off. With a 12 month contract on any Value Plus plan with an added on data plan, the Galaxy S can be yours for RM1,699.

It’s a pretty good deal considering the specs you’re getting. It’s hard to imagine that just a couple of years back you’d be paying upward of RM3,000 for a comparable WinMo smartphone.

Technology is definitely getting cheaper.

We’ll be at the Samsung galaxy S launch today to try out the phone for the first time and give you the details. We’re a man down today, so there won’t be live blog coverage for this event.
