General Elections 2013 are just around the corner in Pakistan and everyone seems to be in the elections fever with great campaigns and political gatherings all over the country – it would just keep getting stronger and stronger as 11th May approaches.
Djuice Pakistan’s Angootha Chalao campaign was one of the first to start in Pakistan, followed by several other telcos. Angootha Chalao is all about creating awareness among the youth on the importance of voting and taking a pledge (all by using their mobile phones) that they will get out of their houses on 11th May and cast their vote at their respective polling stations. This campaign is for everyone — not just for Djuice or Telenor customers — and has already been viral enough to be called a big success.
Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched at an amazing event today in Lahore, Pakistan. Before we continue, let us clearly rule this event out as the best ever phone launch event by any smartphone manufacturer or a tech company in Pakistan. We have been to almost every Android phone launch event in Pakistan by Samsung, HTC or Huawei — even launch events by Nokia — but Samsung Pakistan have set a pretty high bar for others now.
The main event was joined by over 300 people (just my guess) which includes guests, celebrities, a handful of bloggers and media teams. The event took place at Expo Center in Lahore. We took hundreds of photos/videos which will be soon uploaded on the Android Pakistan Facebook Page. For now, continue reading below for a brief review on what actually happened at the Galaxy S4 launch event.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is just around the corner and is expected to be available in stores, starting from sometime this week in Pakistan. Every day, users from a number of places all over the world are able to get their hands on the Galaxy S4 as it gets launched in various countries. We have added a few quick hands-on photos of the Samsung Galaxy S4 (in black) below — just a few, but a complete album full of Galaxy S4 goodness will be posted soon.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is coming to Pakistan this week – for Rs. 72,000. Ufone is already taking pre-orders of this phone and is expected to start selling as soon as the Galaxy S4 comes to the market. Samsung Galaxy S4 was first announced at a Samsung Unpacked event in March 2013 and has already been launched in a few countries yesterday and the day before.
Pakistan will be getting the octa-core version of the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500). This phone comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as the base firmware, with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin on the top along with lots of custom apps and customization options. We will be doing a quick review and post more photos of the Samsung Galaxy S4 very soon.
Olaround. We believe, you must have already found or read about this amazing new service in Pakistan. Bramerz has flared up the social media scene in Pakistan with the launch of Olaround. This is an initiative taken in association with Google and Ufone, and in support from P@ASHA. This is the first of its kind of location–based loyalty service which could mark a new digital trend for the way businesses connect with their consumers — and consumers enjoy a happy relation with their favourite places.
