Blackberry Z10 is the revolution smartphone of RIM. It’s a first full touchscreen and keyboardless blackberry running on Blackberry OS 10 (BB10). Blackberry Z10 equipped with 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera with LTE (long-term evolution) ready.
Maxis as a first telco that brought Blackberry Z10 into Malaysia 1 month earlier than other telcos as well as local market reseller, and I’ve revealed the Maxis Blackberry Z10 postpaid contracted plans earlier.
The current market price for Blackberry Z10 is RM 2,188. However, I’m here to show you another option to get your lovely Blackberry Z10 from Maxis for just RM 1,688 without any contract. Yes, it’s true, only RM 1,688. However, there is some criteria you must fulfil.
Which phone is the most valuable and worth to receive RM 200 smartphone rebate ? Of course there is no standard answer. But if you ask me, I would say iPhone 5. Why ?
From my point of view, Apple iPhone is the most valuable and worth to own it with RM 200 smartphone rebate, because Apple has fixed the price and their reseller can’t advertise lower than their recommended retail pricing (RRP), so you won’t find anywhere that selling cheaper than Apple retail price.
And iPhone price will only reduced after the introduction of the next generation iPhone. For example iPhone 4S dropped from RM 2,199 to RM 1,799. Unlike the other smartphones, like Samsung Galaxy Note 2, RRP is RM 2,299, after smartphone rebate is RM 2,099, but my friend bought it somewhere even lower than RM 2,099 without smartphone rebate.
Remember in when treasury minister purposed the Malaysia budget 2013, he said that it will give RM 200 rebate for youth to buy a smartphone. After long wait, finally Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC aka SKMM) had just announced couple days ago on how the rebate given and the restriction.
Age 21 – 30.
Price of the ‘smartphone’ must not more than RM 500. (i doubt how smart is it)
Must buy with telcos (Celcom, DiGi, Maxis etc) and subscribe their data package.
