Update (19/3/11) : After the iPad 2 was announced, the price of iPad is now dropped to RM1,199 (16GB WiFi) and RM1,599 (16GB WiFi+3G) but you can still enjoy the saving using the method below. The saving will be RM120 (RM1,599-RM1,199-RM280). :)
Yesterday I wrote a post about a Maxis Wireless Broadband special promotion for Maxis existing customer, which can save you RM20 a month.
Now I want to share with you a way to save RM170 instantly if you are getting an Apple iPad and looking for a data package. This is not a trick or using any special coupon, it’s just getting the right combination of the product and service. :)
As we all know, Apple iPad is available in 2 versions : WiFi or WiFi+3G.
The 16GB models are selling at RM1,549 and RM1,999 respectively, that’s a RM450 difference in price.
The main difference between the 2 versions is that the WiFi+3G version has 3G wireless capability which allows you to connect to any 3G data network just like how your mobile phone is working. Whereas the WiFi version only allows you to connect to WiFi network, which means the mobility is quite limited.
However, there’s a way for you to enjoy the mobility of a WiFi+3G version using only an Apple iPad WiFi version, what you need is just a WiFi Modem.
Here is how you do it :-
- Get an Apple iPad WiFi version
- Subscribe to Maxis iPad Data Plan or any Wireless Broadband Plan
- Get the Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832) at only RM280 (on a 6-month contract)
Let’s do a price comparison!
The pros are :-
- 1. Save RM170 instantly!
- 2. You get to enjoy the same mobility like the WiFi+3G version at a cheaper price.
- 3. The WiFi Modem will be yours to keep even if you terminate the contract later.
- 4. The WiFi Modem can be used on any other occasions and it’s not limited to only use on an Apple iPad.
The only downside is that you’ll need to carry the WiFi Modem together with the Apple iPad. I personally don’t think this is a problem because it’s so light and small, it easily fits in your pocket.
So, Apple iPad + Maxis Wireless Broadband FTW! :)
