In the FAQ section, Maxis said:
“Maxis wants to offer the complete range of smartphones to customers in Malaysia, along with the soon-to-be launched Android™ Market. (app store)“
However no date of the launch where mentioned. Malaysians can download nearly 60 percent of all apps in the Android market for free, so it wouldn’t make much difference when paid apps are made available.
