Google and Reliance team up to offer free data to new Android users in India

Is this a blue android I see before me? It certainly is as it’s the figurehead for the ‘Blue Bot’ campaign launched by Google and Reliance. Both parties have significant interest in the success of this campaign, for Google it looks to drive interest in the Android OS in India and for Reliance it’s all about attracting new customers to its new 3G network.

The promotion promises 1GB of free data usage for all new Reliance CDMA sign-ups and renewals, both pre-paid and contract, who purchase a new Android handset. The data is for one month only and must be used within the calendar month. The deal is available right now and is due to run until June 15th. There is a separate, similar promotion for GSM handsets due to launch on May 5th.

The Indian market is still very much dominated by Nokia with Android market share slowly creeping up, a free data offering is certainly an ideal way to kickstart a sales surge. Google’s quest for Android world domination continues. Click the link below to take a closer look at the deals on offer.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.
