iPhone Campaign- Orange (Partner), Cellcom and Pelephone Join Hands

September 7, 2009

post_iconCellcom, Partner (Orange brand) and Pelephone, will join efforts and resources in order to launch one single iPhone capaign for all Israeli operators bringing the iPhone.
Each operator has obliged to contribute 1.5 million ILS  in order to promote iPhone sales together with the exact same campaign. Yes you are reading correctly- the “fierce” competition will be forgotten through the campaign in order to creat a win-win situation for operators.

Actually this initiative kind of makes sense, because Apple doesn’t allow any of the operators to change the campaign creative- with the same (boring, techy) ads in every country regardless of culture, religion and weather 🙂 …

Apple is expected to contact the Commissioner of regulation Ronit Kann to ensure that the activity is conducted in accordance with the regulation – which according to Apple, could delay the launch…

The mobile blog of Israel is speculating that Apple may use this as an excuse to delay the launch and maybe just didn’t manufature enough iPhones to fulfil the demand … and not just in Israel.. (then again just a speculation).

Meanwhile The Mobile Blog of Israel is considering to buy a little Android baby for itself, but waiting for a true Hero..

Cellcom will revive Arad festival on Sukkot holiday (Festival of booth) between the 5th- 7th of October,  for teenagers and young adults.

The operator will turn the Arad city to a city of  music, after a few years in which the festival has been shut down. Participants will enjoy live performances and parties.  Estimated project cost – 14 million NIS.

Among artists intended to prefom: Ivri Leader, Aviv Gefen, Yonni Bloch, Assaf Amdursky, Maor Cohen, Shiri Maymon and more…

The festival will be called “Cellcom Volume Arad” like previous Cellcom festivals such as “Cellcom Volume Kineret“.

It seems that Cellcom are ready to invest a lot of money in order to engage youth segment with the brand and to connect the Cellcom brand with other types of media rather than mobile, such as : music and entertainment.

Here’s the TV ad for the new activity (Notice it says Cellcom Media on it). Ireally liked it, it’s really different from other Cellcom TV ads which usually focus on what’s Israeli and targets an emotional focus. This time it’s actually catchy, hip, and has a real message that comes through.

Enjoy!
