The paler version of the BlackBerry® Bold 9700 is eagerly awaited by style-conscious customers seeking performance with outstanding looks. This continues Maxis’ track record of offering Malaysians, the latest in mobile device evolution, together with a growing range of useful and innovative services to maximise these devices’ daily applications.
The BlackBerry® Bold 9700 in lustrous white is now available from Maxis
Said Jean-Pascal van Overbeke, Maxis’ Chief Operating Officer, “Advanced devices are a crucial part of the integrated services platform that Maxis is currently focused on tailoring to universal as well as individual needs. We are constantly listening to customers, and are pleased to offer devices which are capable of providing a seamless experience of the modernised Maxis network, while satisfying highly individual requirements as befits the expanding role of mobile devices into every area of expression.”
“The new BlackBerry® Bold 9700 not only offers high performance – but also pays attention to all aspects of design and emotional appeal that ultimately affect a device owner’s way of communicating.” Added Mr van Overbeke, “And just look at it. It’s elegant, it’s certainly different to its predecessors at a glance – and it does all this very very simply, by overturning previous habit and expectation with a single colour stroke.”
The new BlackBerry® Bold 9700 in white is available at the affordable all-in price of RM2,459 for Maxis’ postpaid customers, incorporating 12 months of the BlackBerry Internet Service Plan for free – this will address all your email, instant messaging, unlimited mobile internet browsing and social networking needs. A hundred customers will also receive free accessories with purchase, of a leather holster and Jabra Bluetooth headset worth RM500.
The new white BlackBerry® Bold 9700 features an ergonomic external design which fits firmly in your palm. Its trackpad offers an enhanced response speed compared to the previous trackball. Its improved 3.2 megapixel, auto-focus camera delivers crisp, clear picture quality.
Besides voice, SMS & MMS, BlackBerry offers true push delivery of email (up to 10 email accounts), customised and easy access to Instant Messaging services and social networking sites.
The device makes working on the go a breeze with preinstalled Word, Excel, and PowerPoint To Go applications and with its 3.5G (up to 7.2Mbps) data connectivity, offers true flexibility at both work and play over the data-efficient Maxis network.
The new BlackBerry® Bold 9700 in white will be available first to Maxis customers, from Maxis Centres and Maxis Exclusive Partners nationwide in June 2010. Do call 1800 821 123 for more useful and elegant details.
