There was an exclusive deal just for media who attend this exclusive presentation. Does it looks attractive for you? =)



This time there are more photographers and media for the Xpax BlackBerry Messenger launch compared to last time Celcom Broadband new RM38 Package.



There was this girl with bigger and better equipped DSLR for her to snap too~! *jealous-ing*




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
First of all congratz Celcom Xpax for being the first to launch Xpax's BlackBerry Messenger plan in Asia Pacific. It is good to launch new product/package asap.

In my opinion, Xpax's BlackBerry Messenger plan is a very good news for prepaid user who SMS a lot especially for couple users who both using BlackBerry smartphone. But if a person who own a smartphone I am sure most of them will get full use of it(Unlimited Internet Browsing, Twitter, FourSquare+++) but not only using BBM right?

So I hope in future Celcom Xpax can lower the monthly rate for Advanced Plan to make it more affordable and competitive =)
