Here are few official words from CMO of Telenor Pakistan,
3G is getting popular across the country but unavailability of affordable and good featured handsets are hampering its growth. The penetration of 3G technology could be faster than today if customers will be provided handsets that could easily supported 3G technology with desired applications and options.
This is not for the first time that a Pakistani telecom company has launched mobile phones. Ufone and Zong have already launched few 3G mobile phones.
