iPhone 5 Coming To Malaysia

Finally the wait is over (almost). At least we have the confirmed date now.

iPhone 5 will be available in South Korea on Friday, December 7 and on Friday, December 14 in Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Grenada, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan, Kuwait, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. iPhone 5 will also be available on Friday, December 21 in Barbados, Botswana, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Egypt, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Senegal, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St.Vincent & the Grenadines, Tunisia, Uganda and Vietnam.

The rumor of the iPhone 5 coming to Malaysia in December started in mid of November. The grey market scene at that point of time seems to confirmed the rumor where we saw the price of the iPhone 5 dropped from a whopping RM3,500.00 to just RM2,500.00. RM1,000.00 drop within a week. Top up RM100 to RM200 premium for Black and slate model. Quick check at and still shows the price still at RM2,500.00, let see how far the price going to drop. What’s interesting to see is the price for the iPhone 5, it is expected to be sold around what iPhone 4S currently priced at. iPhone 5 is sold at less than RM2,000.00 unlocked in the US, lets hope Apple Malaysia can match that.

While to me iPhone 5 should just be named iPhone 4L with the L for longer. This news does excite me indeed.
