      I know Telenor had such plans too. On another note, after confining this service to only their own customers – Mobilink probably missed a large chunk of user base and largely missed the idea of online store that can rock local market in coming years.

      I am sure entrepreneurs are eyeing this closely…

      • FYI

        Yes Telenor was working on it and had some understanding with a hand-set company also.

        Agreed, restricting to own customers is not a good idea. Let’s see how things unfold ahead…

  • SilentPlay3r

    http://www.jazzbananas.com/ throwing system errors. :-D

    Strange, they should put a beta label or at-least shouldn’t go live before doing a proper SQA & penetration.

    Crappy stuff!!

  • Kollegejeans

    funny actually

  • Timmy

    The website is working fine….and there seems to be a lot of stuff there….looks like a brilliant first step!

  • Rem0te1

    5000+ content? where? what a load of useless content !!! I am sure Telenor will be coming up with better content from develoeprs such as gameloft zmobile etzz

    Lame/useless stuff.

  • Saad Awais

    The name is so crap.

    Is Mobilink planning to give Kailas to its customers?

    • Aamir Zafar

  • Timmy

    @Rem0te1: They have Angry Birds, YoNinja,PigRush, Hungry Shark, Youtube, Flickstr, Street Fighter, Need for Speed and a lot more….you should probably check it again…the content is pretty good…

    If Telenor had to do an app store they would have done it by now! :)
