Development of using Gadgets in Market

nokia

I remember the time when newspaper, an old radio, a landline telephone set, and a gigantic TV set which were just able to broadcast national television programs, were the only tools of entertainment available in every household of Pakistan. People use to watch national channels for every purpose like news, entertainment etc. The only channels of communication were landline telephones and post. Radio was the only thing which can play music. And we all were quite happy back then too. But as we all know that time never remain the same. It keeps on changing. But if we talk particularly about gadgets, then time has changed in Pakistan in quite a revolutionary way. Almost every latest gadget and technology is now available in Pakistan. In this article I will talk about the changing trends of using technology in Pakistan and most particularly I will talk about gadgets.

The father of all gadgets

The father of all gadgets

Let’s start with the first gadget, which I would say has proved to be a father of all gadgets. It is none other than Mobile phone. After the technology boom in Pakistan, this gadget has gained the immense popularity. Almost 80% people living in Pakistan’s urban cities are using a mobile phone. Mobile phone has been dedicated as a technology of the decade internationally, and it should be in Pakistan as well. Today, it is the toughest job to identify a single adult or even a teen ager who does not possess a mobile phone. The great contributors in Pakistan’s great mobile revolution are Nokia Mobile, Samsung Mobiles, Sony Ericson, and other companies. The latest mobile phone technology is Smartphone technology. And Pakistan is the most potent market when it comes to smart phones. And this can be witnessed by looking the number of unofficial iphone Smartphone sales all around the Pakistan. It is one of the bestselling phones in the history of Pakistan.

Television the most commonly used gadget

But it is now in the smartest shape ever. Statistics tells that more than 70% household in Pakistan are having a television set at their household. This gadget has faced so many revolutions, from simple TV to Plasma, from plasma to LCD, and now from LCD to LED. It is getting slimmer with every passing day. People in Pakistan who do not afford a new LCD and TV buy used LCD or a Used TV, but they do have this technology no matter what and how. Another worth mentioning thing here is that trend in changing technology of a television is also increasing quite rapidly. People who once used to have a television are now having a LCD of minimum a plasma TV.

The others

gaming

Then comes other gadgets like gaming devices, Cameras and music players. The launch of gaming device from big players like Sony and Microsoft the trend of buying gaming device has clearly gone up. Youngsters are buying both portable devices along with classic devices. Music players are another bestselling gadget in Pakistan. So many companies like Audionic came into the small, and big sized music players industry, but they haven’t got the desired success because of the officially launched IPOD in Pakistan. Another most widely spread trend is of cameras. After the official launch of Sony, Nikon and canon in Pakistan, this trend seems to be increasing day by day because almost everyone nowadays posses a handheld camera.

Samsung Gears The Move Of Technology In Pakistan

Samsung gears the move of technology in Pakistan4There was a time when Pakistan was quite a large market for Nokia mobiles. Most of the population was fond of Nokia phone due to their durability and sound features. During that time Iphone Smartphone were sold unofficially in Pakistan at a very large scale. This is a recorded fact that though Apple did not operated in Pakistan locally but still it had a following at a very high level in the country. People used Apple for their smart phone needs and had Nokia as a second phone.

What has gone different with this trend? What has changed the preferences of the people? The answer to these questions can be summed up in only one word that is none other than Samsung. This Japanese company has given a very tough time to its competitors like Nokia, LG, Sony Ericson and most of all, the giant Apple. The question that comes to everybody’s mind is that what different does the new comer did to grasp the attentions of the potential customers?

This question can be answered after taking Samsung achievements into account. Today one can see Samsung dominating the smart phone market as well as phone market for usage as a second option. Some of the reasons why Samsung is dominating the cellular phone market are discussed as under.

Economical pricing

Economical pricing2Samsung technology launched their smart phone at a comparatively less price. This is of the most dominating factor as this country is under developed and everyone cannot afford to have an Apple smart phone. That can also be a reason that people have switched towards smart phone manufactured by Samsung as they provide it on less prices with latest android technology. This is also a reason that today apart from buying new iphone 4s smart phone people have switched towards Samsung galaxy smart phones or towards Used iPhone Smartphones.

Galaxy craze

Samsung galaxy smart phones have outnumbered all other smart phone brands in Pakistan in the ratio of sales. This is a fact as Samsung provides a wide range of galaxy smart phones with different specifications and pricing.

Adequate branding policy

File photograph of models posing with the new Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone during its launch ceremony at the headquarters of Samsung Electronics in SeoulSamsung has an appropriate branding and promotional policy whenever a new product comes. It advertises its products out n loud to the public emphasizing on the pricing and feature that Samsung is offering. This is not only limited to phone but today Samsung is also featuring is Laptop computer and digital cameras in Pakistan and it is expected that it also would be having a positive response.

Taking these factors under consideration it can be said that in the coming time Samsung will have a much bigger market in Pakistan. In the coming time Samsung will also be having a cool craze of its used products in the market as well. Used Cameras and used computers manufactured by Samsung will also shake the market of cameras and branded computer firms like Dell, HP, ACER and SONY.

The range and pricing smart phones and other phones that Samsung is having at the moment is matchless. Other competitor will have to seriously think about their marketing strategies as today it is not only Samsung with has already threatened their hegemony but Chinese mobile firms are also coming up with many different mobile models over the year. A big example is Q Mobiles Company which is also having a big market in Pakistan.

Pakistan is not a land of smart phones

Pakistan is one of those very few countries who faced Information technology revolution. Today Pakistan’s urban areas are fully equipped with state of the art technology. And every new technology that is being introduced worldwide hits Pakistan as well. Though Pakistan stand out in the race of per capita cell phone usage internationally but when it comes to smart phones Pakistan still lacks the charm. Internationally the boom of smart phones has touched 79% approximately. But Pakistan where approximately 104 million mobile phone connections are active and approximately having the cell phone density up to 65% is still far behind in Smartphone grabs with only 5% density. This low penetration of smart phones across the Pakistan is due to so many factors.

Lack of local carrier’s interest

If we make comparison of Pakistan with any EU country or Britain than there is some enormous price differences between us. Over there all the cell phones are fully adopted by mobile phone carriers and every individual can acquire them on contract basis. An Iphone Smartphone or any of Nokia mobiles cost almost $200 or less, which is approximately 18000 PKR. But here in Pakistan no Smartphone which is 4G and having a latest platform like android, or IOS cost less than 50K. Now that’s a stretch. People do not afford buying brand new smart phones here because they are too expensive, and carriers do not take much interest in this business model as they think that culture in Pakistan does not allow this. Though some companies like Zong, and ufone have taken the first step for this type of cell phone penetration and mobilink also time to time launch different Blackberry models for business class users, but this business model did not had any immense response from public.

No 3G installation

Another big reason for low penetration of smart phones in Pakistan is the lack of 3G networks availability in Pakistan. Most of the smart phones are data centric and give best use with high network data centers. But in Pakistan most of the people haven’t even heard of 3G network and when they grab a cell phone they really don’t know how and why to use it. Though Samsung Mobiles have recently launched a new line of smart phones in Pakistan, and it is also getting subtle response too but in order to increase the numbers it would require more efforts and more time.

Classic culture

Then another factor that is somewhat stopping this smart penetration in Pakistan is lack of interest on touch screens and elegant mobile devices. Well I am talking about majority here, they do not believe on having a cell phone which is not physically very rigid and strong. And the biggest reason of this perception is made by Nokia Mobiles, who were the first market entrants here.
Keeping all these things in mind so many big giants like apple, Vodafone and some other companies have not touched Pakistani market yet and launched here officially. But without any doubt Pakistani market is one of the biggest potential markets for any Smartphone manufacturer. And I am not saying this out of the blue if we look around we would see so many people using iphone, and other smart phones which obviously are unofficial versions but still there is a particular niche market in Pakistan which would love to have more and more smart phone companies coming here.

Say hello to online ad posting

Thank you Internet

Here is a quick question for you! When was the last time you bought something by reading an ad post in your local newspaper? I bet you have not in a long time. I still remember that there was a time when we all use to wait for the morning newspaper to arrive and then we use to read all the news and ads posted there. But now the time has changed. And it has changed quite dramatically. Thanks to internet availability almost everything that once uses to be physical has gone virtual. From communication to travel, from travel to ad posting almost everything is available online. In recent times I have noticed that people have completely neglected TV ads, or radio advertisement and start using online ad posting. And there are so many reasons for this as well. This is an era of rapidity. No one afford slow and steady movement. And as a matter of fact print ads, TV ads, have sort of slow responses. And especially when it comes to selling old stuff. But on the other hand online ad posting is rapid like anything. If you want to buy and sell new or used home appliances, Gaming devices, mobile phones, vehicles, or even your old clothes. This is the place where you should go first.

Junk of one can be treasure of another

Most of the times it happens with us that we accumulate so many old stuff. And then we think that only putting them in a junk yard is the last resort. Because practically it is impossible for us to grab those things and sell them in an open market. Or post a paid ad for them in newspaper or anywhere else. But we must not forget that those things may be useless for us but that can be very useful for someone else. And thanks to free online ad posting websites that have made it incredibly easy and swift. By following couple of easy and relatively convenient steps you can clear your whole junk yard. And not just these you can earn some money as well from things which you once thought are unsellable.

How to do it?

The first thing you need to do is to find a best free online ad posting website. You may find bundle of these websites as this is one of the very uprising trend now a days. But you have to filter a lot of them and choose one where your ad will get the maximum response. And to do it you have to check the website ranks or already posted ads and their responses. It will give you the brief idea that whether it is a good option for you to post ad here. Once you choose a website now start creating your ads by choosing a product category. E.G. if your product is of daily home use select Home appliances, and then choose the sub category like freezer, TV etc. Then while posting adding pictures of your product is very important and I would say is essential. Ads without pictures do not get response at all. No matter what condition your product is in, must post it’s photo. Because it is a virtual selling source that is why picture is the only thing that actually describe the product. And one picture has more worth than your thousand words in description. Once you have done it all now post your ad and be preparing for selling all your used material.
One thing is for sure. Online buying and selling is the future and right now is of great convenience. So it’s about time when you should start using it.

Why Samsung smart phones are becoming so popular in Pakistan?

There was a time when we use to see Nokia Mobile dominate Pakistani mobile phone market. And after that charm broke people start buying apple for smart phones and Nokia for other platforms. But no one ever imagined that out of nowhere a brand that is known for making TVs and LCD will come and capture a biggest chunk of total market share. And that company is none other than Samsung. In recent times we have seen Samsung Mobile along with its TV industry beating so many mobile phone giants like, Nokia, Sony Ericson and biggest among all Apple. Though apple has not launched their operations in Pakistan officially but it was one of most selling Non-official mobile phone being sold in Pakistan on record. But the trend of using apple and other smart phones is seems to like diminishing after the arrival of Samsung smart phones. That is why in this article I will be discussing some of those many tricks that Samsung have pulled in order to become a mobile phone leader in Pakistan and many other countries.

Scintillating Design

The first reason is its scintillating designs. Samsung came up with amazing mobile phone designs unlike coming up with very orthodox and usual ones. It seems that when they were launching their smart phones they knew it already that they have to beat iphone Smartphone in design and make. They are elegant smart phones with very convenient size and weight and come in different color ranges unlikely iphone who comes in only black and white.

 

 

 

Android and large displays

Another reason of Samsung’s success is their acquisition of android platform and large display’s. Android is considered as one of the most user friendly and amazing platform when it comes to mobile technology. Since Google owns it that is why no one can doubt its functionality and its interface. Samsung intensively depends upon large and bright displays. Colors range in some latest models of Samsung smart phones is much higher than apple’s smart phones. Another trick that Samsung have pulled is introducing tablet PCs along with their smart phones, by keeping Apple’s Ipad in mind.

Price orientation

Samsung smart phones are incredibly price oriented. It is the first ever company who launched such amazing smart phones at very affordable prices. The concept of everyone should have a Smartphone by Samsung is highly appreciated by users in Pakistan. Today a Samsung Smartphone which includes android platform, touch screen, a high profile camera, WI-FI and other features is available in as low as 13k Rs. Appx. Whereas Iphone Smartphone their Smartphone range starts from 35k Rs. This apparently is not affordable for everyone.

Subtle Branding

Another very prominent reason of Samsung smart phones success in Pakistan is its proper branding. Unlike another brand like Nokia, Sony Ericson Samsung has branded their smart phones quite extensively. They have launched so many contest and other events where they have distributed free smart phones in past. And still they are doing proper branding almost on every channel. Another thing that adds up in Samsung’s success is that people trust this brand because of their exceptional television range. And that trust has paid them back intensively in this product too.
May be it will take Samsung a little more time to become Smartphone market leader internationally, but facts tells that Samsung mobiles is already a Smartphone leader in Pakistan.

We all love Gadgets

We are living in 21st century. A century of technology and rapidity. Whatever we want to do, some kind of apparatus is always there to accompany us. We are surrounded by machines and gadgets. And the best part is we enjoy living in this era. Whatever we do, we don’t feel thrilled until of unless there is some machine or gadget involved in it. We all daily watch TV, we daily use computer, we daily use ovens, etc. So the crux of the story is that we are bundled with machines all around. That shows our unconditional love towards machines. But as I have said that this is 21st century the more we love gadgets the more they are available in market. And sometimes it gets impossible for us to choose between different types gadgets that how to buy them. Here are few tips by using which you can buy the best gadget.

Look inside your pocket:

First thing first, what is the first thing that you consider while buying anything? Yes, that’s price. Because it is directly linked with your budget. You first think that how much you should spend on whatever you are planning to buy. For example you want to buy a
home appliances , and more specifically you want to buy a television. The first thing you should know about is that which brand is coming in your budget bracket. And then you should consider that what that brand is offering. If you are satisfied with the number of offerings. Then it’s the best case scenario. But if it does not then you should see the offering of that brand which comes slightly above your price bracket. And if that’s suits you, you must increase your budget bracket a little. Because it is giving you the value for money. And another tip in this regard is that try to search products online because sometimes you can find best deals on the websites where people buy & sell new and used home appliances , gaming devices, Mobile phone accessories etc.

What people are saying about it?

The other thing while buying a gadget you should consider is the product review. If you have selected a brand or a product out of so many brands you must know that how much people rate it. There is a huge community on internet which works entirely on writing reviews of different gadgets. And the buyer can easily have a very good idea about the product’s features and how those features work by reading the reviews. E.g. if you want to buy a gaming device and you have decided to buy a certain brand you must know that what people are saying about this certain brand. There is another benefit of reading reviews, buyer get to know about the product’s detailed functionality.

Does it have warranty?

The other thing that every buyer should keep in mind is that your gadget must have warranty. Warranty is considered very essential when we talk about gadgets. Sometimes what happened is that we buy a product but after a while it loses its certain functionality. And repairing it locally can snatch its quality and resale value. But if your product is with warranty your product would be repaired by the professional and authorized Lab of the respective company. And your product would not lose its quality, functionality, or resale value. No matter you are buying a new product or a used product always prefers products that have certain warranty to provide you safety.

Computer Accessories for desktop

The desktop computers are very common in offices and at home because of its inexpensive spare parts and accessories. The Computer Accessories for a desktop computer are readily available in the market with different brands and quality. To select the best computer accessories one must carry a general survey of the market and then buy the appropriate computer accessories.
As the desktop computers are placed at a specific place and no one use to move computer frequently that’s why accessories with low portability can also be bought to minimize the price of a device. Attaching a portable and expensive device for your desktop will give you no benefit as it will lie down in the same place. So buying computer accessories like woofers and high base speakers, wireless keyboard and mouse, external or internal TV cards and screen protectors may add value to your desktop computers.

Must have computer accessories for a laptop

The laptops has become a need of most professionals who want to get access to their personal computer around the clock whether they are at home, office, or on their family or business tours.

Micro USB hub is also one of the important computer accessories for laptop as there are few USB ports to connect more accessories with a laptop.
A small TV device is also useful as it enables one to enjoy watching their favourite TV shows on their laptop, without the need of without connecting additional wires. Besides these, there are many decoration items that can easily be connected to laptop through a USB port to enhance the beauty of your table, while you work on your laptop.

Which computer accessories are must for tablet PC users?

Tablet PCs are the modern personal computers which gives more portability to a user than a laptop. It is easier to carry a tablet device from one place to another as compared with a laptop. A laptop requires a hand bag to carry it, whereas a tablet PC can be carried in one’s hands easily. Although, the tablet PCs are usually equipped with many essential computer accessories, still there are some computer accessories which are necessary to buy. These computer accessories includes, a case or cover for the tablet device to protect it, external key-board as the tablet is all touch system screen which sometimes make it difficult for a beginner to use its key features and HDMI Cable that allow users to view their photos, videos/movies and presentation on a big screen.
