The Indian smartphone maker, Micromax has launched Canvas 2 on Thursday for Rs. 11,999. Let me brief about this offer in deep.
Things to know about this offer
Under this deal, the telecom giant Airtel will offer free voice and data for one year. The users just need to pay the price of the phone i.e. Rs. 11,999. Airtel has promised to offer 1GB data per day. Afterward, the data speed will be reduced. Above all, the users who will buy this device will get 400 minutes for voice calling to any network per day. Overall on weekly basis users can make only 1,500 minutes voice calls on any other networks.
The co-founder of Micromax, Rahul Sharma said that there was long queue when Reliance launched three months free offer. We are not sure how the people are going to respond to this offer.
No telecom company has given such offers till now. So, it will be good to see the response of the users. The company has started the shipment of Canvas 2 from today for sale on retail shops.
Shubhajit Sen says that from the next week onwards this device would be available in around 40-60% of our market across the country. He further added that they would be very much disappointed in case Micromax doesn’t deliver at least one million devices till Diwali.
It seems the Airtel is taking a big step to ramp up its customer base. Its recent quarterly result was not good at all. Its profit plunges to 72% due to reliance’s aggressive marketing plans.
