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 聽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-聽with the same (boring, techy) ads in every country regardless of culture, religion and weather 馃檪 …

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聽… 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..


Samsung Galaxy with android OS now available through Cellcom

August 9, 2009

cellcom聽聽聽聽聽 Cellcom is introducing today the first Android based device in Israel, the Samsung Galaxy.Galaxy

According to reviews from around the globe the Galaxy is an android based phone better fitted for mainstream users and not just technophiles (Like me 馃檪 ).

The Samsung Galaxy (i7500) is featuring a 3.2 inch AMOLED touchscreen display, and 5-megapixel camera (with LED flash).

With a thickness of just 11.9 millimeters, the Galaxy handset is actually slimmer than both the HTC Magic and the Apple iPhone 3G.

聽The handset will be available for eager shoppers for 94.50 ILS per month on a 36 months contract with a monthly rebate cutting the price to 10 ILS per month for heavy users with a 399 ILS monthly bill. (A price much too expensive for yours truly..)

In order to promote the new device, Celcom has launched a contest urging people to photograph a unique object they own and explain why it is so unique in order to win and trade that object for a brand new Galaxy Phone.

10 of the most unique objects will be聽traded for 10 Samsung Galaxy handsets.

Update: Cellcom has launched a commercial for the new Andriod device saying : “There’s nothing like the first time excitement” implying on being the first to launch the Android OS in Israel.

enjoy..


One more post on Google’s Android

October 4, 2008

It seems that a mobile blog which doesn’t publish anything about Android is no more considered to be mobile enough these days :). So I’m trying to keep in pace.

Today I’ve found an interesting article named: “Google spreading itself too thin”. The article has finally formed for me some thoughts which have been running in my mind ever since Google announced it would develop a mobile platform. Read the rest of this entry »
