iPhone 4 comes calling in Malaysia

PETALING JAYA: It was the moment that thousands had waited for – the launch of Apple’s iPhone 4 that is set to bring mobile communication to a new level.

The phone, with its prominent touch screen and fingertip-control interface, was launched at separate events by DiGi Telecommunications Bhd and Maxis Bhd on Thursday night.

Launched in the United States in June, the iPhone 4 is a major redesign of all previous models and it packs more features than its immediate predecessors, the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Maxis launched the iPhone 4 at a midnight event at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur, with DiGi holdings its launch at a showroom here.

At both events, guests and the public got to check out the latest smartphone.

Among those waiting in line at the Maxis event was systems engineer Mohammad Khair Shamsudin, 31, who came as early as 8.30pm.

“When I got here, there was already a long line extending all the way back from the entrance,” he said.

Also there was finance manager Mohd Darul Yusnezam Mohamad Yunus, 30, who said he was waiting to buy two units of the phone – the other for his wife.

The iPhone 4 will be on sale at selected Maxis centres in the Klang Valley from tomorrow and nationwide from Monday.

DiGi has already started selling the iPhone 4 at its 45 centres and specialised stores nationwide.

Among the new features of the iPhone 4 is its high-resolution viewscreen that provides very sharp images and graphics.

The iPhone 4 is also able to record and play back 720p high-definition videos, and if users buy the optional iMovie application from Apple, they will be able to edit these videos on the phone itself.

The new version also has two cameras enabling users to make video calls.
