Free Internet For “Life-Time” With PTCL’s CharJi EVO LTE Tab

Earlier this year, PTCL announced its line of CharJi LTE tablets priced at a cool Rs 25,000, and loaded with freebies. The tablet works with the CharJi service available in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Faisalabad and Peshawar.

It may not be a competitor to popular tablet brands like Samsung, Apple, Google or Lenovo, but it’s priced reasonably enough to be an option for many Pakistanis who not only want cheap tablets but a good supply of freebies to reduce the overall cost of purchasing and using a tablet.

On the occasion of Youm-e-Viladat-e-Quaid-e-Azam, PTCL announced a dizzying offer of free lifetime access to the Internet on its CharJi EVO Tab for the first 2,500 customers who purchase the Android (Kitkat) HD tablet on December 25. Charji EVO is a 7-incher with dual SIM capabilities (for data use, you need a PTCL SIM) that runs on Snapdragon quad-core processor with a 1.2 GHz clock rate and 2GB RAM. The built-in storage is a basic 16 GB that users can expand up to 64 GB. PTCL’s offer provides free Internet for three years, albeit with a sparing 3GB/month data limit. Unlike other tablets, streaming videos or peer-to-peer downloading won’t be feasible, so the tab would essentially be used as a phone. Users also get 15,000 Ufone online minutes for three months; a car tablet holder; a year-old subscription to Smart TV, which gives them access to more than 100 channels; a car charger; a free screen protector; and a PTCL SmartLink Application.

PTCL’s website does repeatedly claim the Internet package for its lucky users is a life-time offer. Only after you scroll to the bottom of the page do you realise the offer isn’t for the human’s life-time, but the tablet’s life-time, which is three years.
