New promotions by Malaysian telcos

Over the past one week plus, telcos have been busy launching new products and campaigns.

Let's start with products offering:

Last Sunday, Maxis and Celcom both announced that it will be launching the new BlackBerry Storm --- the touchscreen smartphone which is expected to give Apple Inc's iPhone a run for its money.

For non-mobile operators, Packet One for example, has announced plans to launch its 10Mbps USB WiMAX dongle.

Here's the interesting part, promotional campaigns:

Early this month, DiGi is offering new campaigns to tie-up prepaid customers longer. By reloading RM10, DiGi prepaid user is entitled to RM30 worth of credit airtime. The money will be disburse to the customers in three tranches, i.e. RM10 x 3 months. So, in order to enjoy the free airtime, you got to hang on to the line.

Today, Celcom announced that it will give away one luxury handbag a day over the next 100 days.

Unlike the previous 100days 100cars campaign (launched June 2008), Celcom's CEO Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly is confident that the campaign is "halal" and complies to regulations.

To take part in the "lucky draw", postpaid customers need to make calls between 12 noon and 7.59 pm. Each call which lasted at least three minutes will be entitled for one entry. So, if you make 10 calls, each call 3 minutes long, you will have 10 entries. However, if you made 1 call which lasted 50 minutes, it is also considered as one entry. :) So peeps, if you really want the bags really badly, hang up every 3 minutes or so.
