Recently Flash has partnered with a local distributor, ECS Astar to distribute the Flash Plus 2 in physical stores. The Flash Plus 2 was originally meant to be an exclusively online brand. ECS though saw the popularity of the device sky-rocketing and immediately saw a potential. ECS thinks that the device will also sell very well through more traditional means. They have partnered with Flash as a distribution partner throughout Malaysia.
The device features premium specs at a very reasonable price which makes a popular choice. Of course with ECS, you can expect the same sort of affordable pricing in the stores as well.
The Flash Plus 2 will be available in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor region through any ECS retailers first before any other states. The Plus 2 with 2GB of RAM currently retails for MYR599 while the 3GB retails at MYR729. Press release after the break.
