DiGi, Malaysia’s third largest carrier will also be dusting off some old stock with the Ericsson SH888 and its “super thick antenna” (as well as being a super thick phone). The best part, the carrier is throwing 30GB of free internet for these devices that barely know what the internet is.
That’s right, Motorola’s classic StarTAC is yours for just 2,399 Malaysian Ringgits (MYR) or an easy $774. If you can’t handle that, then Ericsson SH888 can be had for just 1,899MYR ($612). Then there’s our pick, the venerable Nokia 3310 for just 1,499MYR ($483).
The monthly service will run you only 148MYR ($47) and don’t forget the 30GB of free internet. These babies have you covered, from looking cool when answering a call to keeping you connected with a 100 phone number entries. These beauties will be available for pre-order “soon” so don’t miss out.
It’s on the internet, so it must be true right? Enjoy your April 1st.
Thanks Jonathan and Dick for the tip.

Can you imagine if these things were upgraded to Wifi tethering support? These free 30GB will be like OMG! And if were upgraded to .3" IPS Super LCD Screen, 16GB RAM, T9 Keyboard, HD Cam for 1920x1080 HD video with an 1200 MAh Battery, with the SUPERDUPERDURASTEEL PLASTIC MATERIALS for their Armagedon-proof housings, also their can resist even EMP blasts... OMG! This would be the real future :P

Have you ever heard about the word 'FUN'? Or maybe 'LAUGH'? It's something interesting to have and can relieve you from boredom and stress for a while. Could also last for hours but depends on the intensity of the FUN.. Btw, I'm from Malaysia too but I don't get why you're so...not-fun?

Even though it is a vintage phone, but it is sexy as hell. But the price is burning me!
