Mobilink , Pakistan’s first GSM and largest cellular company , has gone in exclusive partnership with Microsoft Mobile to launch Lumia 535 in Pakistan.
Lumia 535 was launched in Karachi , last week and we were given the hint that operators are now lining up to be the first to launch the device in the county, guess Mobilink with their long partnership with Microsoft Devices formerly Nokia has gotten preference.
For those wondering, Lumia 535 will also be available in the open market , but Mobilink has sweeten the deal by offering 12 GB of 3G serices, 12,000 Mobilink (on net ) minutes and 12,000 SMS to be covered in 6 months . So for Rs 12,450/- you are not only getting the feature rich Lumia 535 but also atleast Rs 2000/- saving in network features.
The devices can be purchased from Mobilink Business Centers across the country.
Both Mobilink and Microsoft Device Pakistan are excited about this partnership as Microsoft Devices will get a wider exposure for their latest Lumia 535 , while Mobilink will be able to give a taste of their 3G services to the consumers.
According to Mr Kamran Masood Niazi , Communications Manager Microsoft Devices Pakistan , “More and more of our customers are demanding a large screen experience at an affordable price. With a spacious 5-inch screen, the latest Windows Phone 8.1 Lumia Denim update and access to a range of Microsoft services, Dual SIM Lumia 535 is an ideal solution to offer them”
Commenting on occasion, Mr Bilal Sheikh , Chief Commercial Officer Mobilink says “Mobilink believes in bringing the latest technology and devices to Pakistani market through partnerships with the best manufacturers in the world. Our collaboration with Microsoft is aimed at enriching our customers’ experience of mobile internet and providing them with hi-speed data services with Mobilink’s robust 3G network spread across 22 cities of Pakistan.”
As for the consumer, Mobilink 3G services are amongst the best in the market , as personally I’ve been using Warid Telecom and Mobilink and at places where Warid LTE is hitting 8mbps and is only available in few parts of Karachi , Mobilink 3G services is giving 10mbps service across the city.
