Stock up on those smartphones, folks! The phrases ‘Push-to- Talk,” and the oft-fleeting, video sharing services, might catch you off guard, as this basant takes off with the 3G reeling out in the front. Finding the phone to be really doing everything that it says it will do in the book, would be cathartic to see, now, wouldn’t it? Movies, Shows, and life should start to make more sense. Voice messaging was totally worth the wait, wasn’t it? You might find more to discover in this open desert. No mirages, Sir, please!
So, besides 23rd April 2014, simply being a monthly anniversary of Pakistan Day – for lack of any other distinction – comes to mark as an important day in ICT history, in much the same manner TV marked a date down in its history, as it set its tube stream through with colour.
The difference between 3G’s before and after is that of speed, yes, but does it just end there. No way!
The following are the many advantages accrued from this ‘no summit, (so it seems) mountain.
- Surfing high on the tide
Roaming ability, broad band width and high speed communication are the different advantages accrued from 3G. Large attachment emails, for all those corporate ‘techies,’ out there who find the current pace at which this country was working for, thus far, was becoming frustrating. It is in this scheme of things.
- Hello, Chacha Jee. I can see and hear you at the same time! Bless you 3G!
Although, it has been some time when Chacha Jee last spoke to you, the next time you two shall speak, would be, God Willing, when you can see Chacha’s lips reading the same as that you are listening.
If that isn’t really real-time coverage, then, what it is?
- See saw
Sharing videos with the world would become so much easier if there was a way these could get faster into the ruckus of the sharing platform, the speed curtailed by the lack of 3G, than into the ruckus corners of your head, now wouldn’t it?
Hats off to the presiding government, we say, at least one feather in this cap. Let’s hope it doesn’t fly back!
- Sharing a 1000 pixels
With the ‘selfie’ culture, turning everyone into a celebrity in their eyes, sharing a picture is not the same as sharing a thousand words anymore, now is it – maybe sharing a 1000 Bytes – but nothing else.
- Be mesmerized
No need to snack while downloading, thank God! It was showing on the belly line! Downloading, as in the movies, would be something to look forward to!
