Mobilink Launched Samsung Galaxy Tab at Lahore Bloggers Meet-up!

In the year 2010, Mobilink initiated a new tradition of involving online community of bloggers in mobile technology related launches in Pakistan. Company says that the aim was to engage, seek opinion and build relationship with the people who are always abreast with the latest technological trends in the telecom and mobile phone technology.

On New Year’s eve, Mobilink in collaboration with Samsung launched the P1000 Galaxy tablet in the blogging community of Lahore.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Tab in Pakistan is Rs. 57,990

The meet-up took place in Bistro 201 and about 120 bloggers from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad showed up at the event including Jehan Ara, President PASHA Pakistan, Jibran, the current top Google mapper from Pakistan and teams of ProPakistani and ApnaTime.

The event began at around 4pm and continued till 6pm. Many prizes were also given away including one Galaxy tablet to winner of an online competition, Hammed Dar of KoolMuzone from Islamabad. Two mobile phones and many Mobilink, Samsung goody bags were distributed among bloggers by asking pop questions.

Overall, the bloggers meet-up brought a good end to 2010. Last year, Mobilink arranged 3 blogger meet-ups, one in Lahore for the Launch of Motorola Milestone – the android phone in the local market. The second one was arranged in Islamabad to mark the launch of HTC HD7 Windows Mobile Phone 7 powered smartphone. The last blogger meet-up was held on December 31st to celebrate the launch of Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    The Mobilink VAS Team really knows what it is doing… If they continue like this the rest of the Telecom players will be running behind them to catch up in the smart phone race…
