Very good news indeed. Please introduce Android One devices in Pakistan from some renown brands as well like Huawei, Xiaomi or Lenovo.
A much needed aid. Thank you Google. Now do something to fix the capitalist prices for Internet access. Its ridiculous how high they charge! And the fact that 3G and 4G networks are faster than DSL/WIFI is further proof of control over the market.
Very pleased and might consider it over the Motorola moto g 2nd gen
Google certified hardware with an affordable price tag and updates of latest version of Android soon after they are released, thanks Google!
What about the Next Gen Android One being launched later this month? Will Pakistan be getting that after about a year's wait,too?
This good news is announced by google india vice president Caesar Sengupta
thanks sir caesar senguptai shall purchase this mobile within few weeks
Thank you for your prompt response... wish others were such good listeners and responders.. I shall definitely be visiting the market for the purchase... it shall be a worthy addition next to my Nexus. Thanks Google!
Thank you very much Google, you guys rock!
If we can get Nastaleeq script for Urdu on Android now, that would be perfect!
Good news indeed for Qmobile and for Pakistan
Even India needs 8GB internal memory Android One. Please launch the V2 soon, please...
please @google bring more stuff in pakistan
Is it only with qmobile? PLease make it available with better brands as well as there are many like me who are not fond of qmobile.
way to go Q mobile keep up the good work:)
It will be much better if google collaborated with mediatek directly so that they could update all mediatek based devices to latest android versions rather than this Android one scheme. I know many mediatek devices are out there and their number is quite higher as compared to just android one devices.
Dear Caesar Sengupta & team,Hope you are good and healthy.I have some quick observations/points to share with you.According to xda devref:http://www.xda-developers.com/google-to-launch-next-gen-android-one-on-14-july/1> Android One (1st Gen) selling price is $65, in Pakistan you have doubled the price to about $113 that is beyond the thoughts that why it is so costly in Pakistan when both countries (India and Pakistan) have mobile phone based in Chinese manufacturers.2> The current device with this price tag is not fair enough to compete with other phone from same vendor (QMobile) and other chinese brands (Rivo, Lenovo, Huawie and so on). Except that A1 RUN on stock ROM.3> 2nd Gen Android is already planned for India, it should be great if it was launched in India and Pakistan both (may be with little delay) as both countries are moving with good speed to adopt new gadgets.4> Quality of QMobile (current non google phones) is not so good to be adopted by knowledgeable persons.Hope you notice some of my quick observations.RegardsKashif
@Kashif SurhioWell you don't know how much taxes they are charging per unit when Importing into Pakistan.You pay 30% tax.Most manufacturers are importing complete handsets in Pakistan rather than assembling them as in neighboring India. There is also red rape involved in the process like approval from PTA, fines from Customs in the detention center.After all that they also pay for advertising and shopkeeper also keeps some money in this pocket, So it is obvious that price of phones in Pakistan will be higher as compared to India.
1. will Qmobile also sell extra or replaceable battery??2. what sensors are in this mobile??@Ab@Kashif SurhioTax is only PKR 500 ($4.5) on each mobile. Tax is NOT 30% on mobile phone itself who told you that? Well 30% tax is on making phones calls NOT on mobile hardware.
"i-mobile iQ II" the Android One for Thailand, this mobile should be launched in Pakistan, this has perfect specs and price in Thailand so why not for Pakistan also ?? please do this :(
@Eask any importer or custom official.You nearly pay 30% (tax + customs) when importing to Pakistan.
@E, I know but AB is not in mood to understand. May be he is one of the employee of QMobile (just benefit of doubts)
@kashif surhio I am not an employee or shareholder of any mobile brand in Pakistan. Furthermore I also wanted to import some phones from China and I asked the relavent authorities about taxes and duties they all told me the same ,if you have any doubt ask any importer you will get the same answer. You can even Google it.
