MALAYSIANS will once again be able to experience the latest innovations in mobile gadgets when the GoMobile Expo takes place this weekend at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Malaysia's largest mobile lifestyle expo will be the place to see mobile devices and technology in action. From seeing the latest mobile devices in one venue to finding great bargains and a wide range of choices, the expo promises to be the showcase of the best of mobile lifestyle.
Being held for the third year running, GoMobile 2010 is presented by Celcom Axiata Berhad as the pinnacle sponsor.
Exhibitors will be selling the latest cellphones, mobile devices and service packages at attractive prices.
To add excitement, there will be gifts for high-value purchasers as well as the opportunity to win mobile devices.
A highlight for visitors this year will be a Phone Museum. Early this year, Mobile World magazine launched a campaign to get Malaysians to loan old phones they were keeping for the GoMobile Phone Museum. Malaysians from all over have joined this effort.
Phones have been sent from as far away as Miri, Sarawak. Muzium Telekom Malaysia has also pitched in with portions of their valuable collection.
Visitors will see old phones such as the rotary dial telephone and early mobile devices such as car phones from the 1980s and the ‘brick' phone.
GoMobile 2010 is especially an avenue for Malaysians to witness the many applications and innovative services developed by Malaysians.
In support of the government's call encouraging the development of local content and services, the organisers will set aside a special zone, GoMobile AppStreet that houses mobile applications, services and content.
This showcase of locally developed content will increase the prominence of the local content industry.
The organisers are also running a fun promotion calling on Malaysians to ‘Get Your Friends to GoMobile".
The top eight people who manage to bring the most friends to the expo will win a BlackBerry Torch or Blackberry Curve 3G phone.
Other prizes such as Ipod Shuffle music players and hundreds of T-shirts are up for grabs.
