[Insider] Windows Phone Marketplace available now & Nokia Lumia RRP in Malaysia

Its eight days down the road before the official launching of the Nokia Lumia in Malaysia and there are already a lot of rumours on the Nokia Lumia pricing.

The official retail price of the Nokia Lumia 800 is RM1650 and the Nokia Lumia 710 is priced at RM999. Please ignore the estimated pricing that we revealed previously.

As for Windows Phone Marketplace, we are excited to be the first to reveal that Maxis has enabled it with operator billing. They are “fine tuning” some stuff and it should be available now or soon before the Lumia launch in Malaysia.

With Maxis supporting Windows Phone Marketplace, customers can now purchase from over 60,000 apps and will be charged via the Maxis phone bill. Not sure about DiGi, but we are still checking with Celcom if  it would enable operator billing as well.

No promises but we will try reveal if there are any exciting launch promotion for the Nokia Lumia next week.

[Update1]- Celcom has confirmed to enable operator billing for Windows Phone Marketplace before the Nokia Lumia launch in Malaysia.
