Maxis is offering a time limited sale on selected smart phones which offers lower monthly commitment than before. Usually Maxis bundle its devices with a minimum bolt on of 500MB data plan of RM58/month and this time, they offer more options with a much lower RM38/month which gives you 250MB of Data. For BlackBerry, the plan on offer is the BIS Entry of 250MB at RM40/month. This offer is valid from now until 14th August 2011.
Among the devices on offer is the HTC Chacha, the original HTC Wildfire, Huawei Ideos S7 tablet, Motorola Backflip and the BlackBerry Pearl 3G. The bundle pricing you see above are tied with a shorter 12 months contract period. Here’s the comparison of the minimum offer before and after:
RM499 with 500MB plan, now RM799 on 250MB data plan
RM699 with 500MB, now RM699 on 250MB data plan
RM1149 with 500MB, now RM1099 on 250MB data plan
Huawei Ideos S7
RM1029 with 500MB, now RM999 on 250MB data plan
BlackBerry Pearl 3G
RM799 on BIS Pro (RM90), now RM1099 on BIS 40 plan
While RM38 a month is cheaper, it costs more per GB. Therefore those who will be highly likely to use more than 250MB/month within the 12 months contract period might want to look at higher data plans instead.
