iPhone 3G to Malaysia March 20, Indonesia March 23
Add these to the always-growing tick sheet of countries selling the iPhone 3G, currently numbering around 75. We have word on the street that Indonesian carrier Telkomsel will be offering the highly touted device on March 23, and Maxis will launch it in Malaysia on March 20.
The tipster also claims the iPhone will be selling for nearly $800-900 USD and only can be purchased with credit card.
We are hoping this is a no-contract price; that seems like an awfully high price to pay considering Malaysia will be launching the iPhone 3G for free with two-year contract on a high enough rate plan.
We’re interested to see how Indonesia reacts to receiving the iPhone. 90% of telecom subscribers there are prepaid.
In Kuala Lumpur, those who have pre-registered for the iPhone with Maxis will be invited to a special launch event March 20 where they can pick up their iPhones.
