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
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.
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.

People are waiting for this valuable mobile device when it will get the place into the shelves of leading stores. The brand new android based Smartphone is a piece of attraction for everyone though it costs higher than its predecessors. Whatever the issues are, I know one thing that I am in love with Samsung Galaxy SIV and certainly it is included in my wish list.
The Hot Samsung Galaxy SIV is on the top of your wish list:
Samsung GalaxyS4 is onto the top of new Smartphone list, but the ultimate user find some flaws, however Samsung did not embark over such issue. The prices of SGS4 really surprised its followers; the price is getting varied in different regions accordingly which describe the potential and the magnitude of the demand of SGS4 country to country, here is the pricing summary.
The more disappointing fact is this that Samsung’s arrival is not on the similar date in different country of EU. It is reported that stunning Samsung Galaxy S4 arrival is delayed due to the specific technology changing ( Octa-Core Exynos ) that is the demand set for the country like Italy.
Debate on SGS4 features:
mobile users are inclined towards wireless charging, but the accessories of Samsung can enable this feature. Perhaps this action was taken to save the money or reduce the cost, here are the probabilities but it is sure that this feature is missing in SGS4. The processor of the SGS4 is featured as Octo core inside but in reality the two sets of four cores are joined together to improve the performance and extends the battery life. I don’t think that Samsung will take the initiative to enhance the processing capacity to 1.6GHz that is featured in SGS4 to .8GHz, or even 2GHz or beyond in the SGS5.
The Camera, Screen and storage features are terrific:
The android Smartphone is equipped with the latest version of Android: 4.2.2. Samsung is determined to cover the latest software to enhance the usability of the new mobile.
The screen of SGS4 is keeping the same full-HD 1080p display. Samsung is not looking forward to enhance the 5-inch display or increase the resolution because it does not want to compromise on picture quality and visual graphics.
Samsung has introduced the most outstanding features of storage; the storage of GalxyS4 is 2GB with micro SD slot that makes it a complete library for all your favorite music videos as well as for your important documents.
Samsung is following the Google trending Cloud storage and proved vital to work on any carrier and band around the globe. However Samsung and the mobile market are not only relying to Google cloud storage as it know the nerves of every consumer and every user is not technology oriented so the Micro sdcard slot is inevitable to be the exclusive feature of SGS4.

HTC is in the race to compete the giant mobile companies, but the handset that HTC offers are tootender, do you get that? No, I mean to say if you throw any cell or it fell by chance you will find only the pieces of broken screen, does it sounds good. Most probably not, well, it’s a different matter; the news is this that HTC has cast its eyes on the new HTC’s plus sized One Max is A 6 inch phablet that is ready to launch in September. The phablet might have something very startling that will really attract the HTC fans.
The approach of HTC:
If we have a look at HTC’s strategy than we will come to know that HTC is only focusing to introduce new Internet Devices only to be in the highlights. But don’t you think by launching so continuously HTC can lose the quality of its devices. Thus compromising on quality for the sake of quantity is what HTC doing right now. This approach might not be last long. On the other hand resources have unveiled some of the facts about HTC One. The resources told that HTC will unveil a giant –sized version of the Falgship HTCone with a 6-inch 1080 display dubbed the one max.
However sources also informed that a small version of HTC one might be on the way of its launch called HTC Mini. Well, we have to see how this Smartphone will get a success in the mobile market. It is expected that Mini HTC is to be launched in July. Although the general specification is not yet so clear, but some specs had been pointed by the resources. The specifications are 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 3200mAh battery and either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. The Smartphone is quite stylish and elegant just like its predecessors the HTC one.
How does HTC can meet the challenges:
Apple tablet. Now let’s see what should be in store of HTC’s phablet. As we know Samsung has already captured a big share of tech market with its successful Samsung Note series. It’s hard to believe for HTC makers but it’s a fact that HTC fails to capture the market with its 7-inch tablet called flyer. The Flyer can offer input by using stylus cost$80. But this tablet failed to provide the desired result.
Perhaps leveraging the One branding alongside new device sizes will yield better results. Now let’s see what marketing strategy and what specific features HTC will introduce in its next launch HTC plus sized one max 6 inches tablet. HTC after being successful in its Smartphone series has kept pace in tablet market, where Samsung and Apple have their strong hold. It is to see how HTC will overcome these two market players. It is possible only when HTC introduce some outstanding features that are missing in Samsung and Apple. Otherwise it would be an effort that can’t be proved fruitful.
