Update 2, 11.35pm(Dec 8): Based on update 1, we are not sure how fast it will happen, but we believe Maxis will start the pre-order before Celcom. Serious stuff aside: We just made fun of our friend at Maxis for not telling us anything earlier..:)

Similar to Celcom, Maxis iPhone 4S pre-order is expected to start sometime this week. We believe that Maxis iPhone 4S plans have been approved by Apple but we are unable to reveal it yet because Celcom and DiGi have yet to get approval from Apple.
Someone working on the iPhone 4S KLCC event said that Maxis might only accept customers who pre-ordered for iPhone 4S starting midnight (Dec 16) till morning. For walk in customers, they can purchase the Maxis iPhone 4S at KLCC and selected Maxis outlets nationwide starting 10am(Dec 16).
Maxis iPhone 4S plans and pricing coming up soon!
