At about 830pm all media adjourned to the media hall for dinner…
…and also introduction speech by Sandip Das, Chief Executive Officer, Maxis Berhad.
Since media(or registered bloggers) get all access to all halls, I went into the main hall to check out the collection and payment booths. There were 40 of them as opposed to 60 from last year.

At 11pm the first batch of customers (40 of them) were ushered to the hall to practice the launch gambit.. so they know where to go what to do and how to collect their iPhone 4S.
