July 18, 2009

post_iconPelephone is rumored to start recruiting students for temporary sales positions in order to push iPhone and Andriod pre-sales and sales up until September.

Intersting.. Just to remind you that all operators (maybe except Cellcom? ) signed a contract with Apple obligating them to sell 80,000 iPhones per year.

And let’s finish with a poll – what do you think?  “The mobile blog of Israel” craves for your opinion.

Orange Partners with ‘Bug’

Orange has announced a partnership with ‘Bug‘, a chain of 50 computer stores across Israel. The partnership will allow Orange (Partner) to operate sales counters iwithin the stores in order to promote the sales of Orange’s  (Partner) broadband/ mobile broadband, netbooks, landlines and additional products. The strategic partnership comes a few months after Partner has waived on operating its points of sales in ‘Superpharm’ durgstore chain, who has been in a long partnership with Orange  which was established almost from Orange’s first day in Israel.

Pelephone has already replaced Orange in operating  ‘Superpharm’s points of sale and it seems that Orange needed to change location in order to change customers preception of it services range. In order to communicate to customers that the service range includes a strong link to internet thease day it was important to sell it alongside with computers. This step further emphsizes that Orange is a quad-player.

 Cellcom Partners with ‘Egged’

Cellcom has partnered with ‘Egged‘ transportation (bus company) and ‘Transpot’, in a project that will see that bus passengers will have the ability to track the driving path and know the approximate estimation of arriving to their final destination.

The information will be displayed to passengers on two screens: one near the entry door and the driver, and the other near the exit door.

Well, this sounds kind of cool! The mobile blog of Israel can’t wait to check that out..
