The next time you buy a new Google endorsed Android Smartphone don’t be surprised if you get free 3G connection with 1 GB free data usage for first 6 months from RCom. Google and RCom have entered a tie-up for 2 years wherein all Google endorsed smartphones will come with these benefits.
This offer goes live from today and will be applicable on many branded android handsets (excluding Motorola brand) available in India. When you buy an android handset (and if applicable) you may get the RCom 3G offer with 1GB free download for 6 months.
If consumers are interested they can activate the 3G plan by visiting the nearest Reliance store. They will need to submit identity proof etc. I know many are not a fan of the reliance network but hey it’s a free offer you either take it or ignore it.
There is some confusion that the free 3G scheme will be available only when you buy an android phone from the reliance outlet. Well I think it will be available from any store. It does not make sense limiting the freebie only for product sold through reliance, RCom could have done that without a tie-up with Google. So I am sure you will find this offer in any stores in India for Google endorsed phones only.
