Micromax has officially debuted one of its kind, the MAd A94, a smart phone that rewards people for watching advertisements which is equal to free talktime. The phone is priced at Rs 8,490.
How does it work?
You have to watch an ad before you dial a number and earn points, which can be converted into Indian Rupees and rewarded to you postpaid or prepaid accounts for free talk time. You can also watch ads through the stand-alone MAd app and get rewarded for the same.
MAd A94 smart phone users will have to register with telecom operators to activate this service. It’s not yet clear on how many points the user gets for watching an ad. Micromax says that in the future, the points could possibly be redeemed for other services besides the ones currently being offered. This feature is only available on the Micromax Mad A94 right now.
The specifics about the phone are scarce, though Micromax does say it is a 4.5-inch FWVGA display (854×480) with a 5-megapixel camera on the front and rear, which can shoot 720p videos. It’s got a Broadcom BCM23550 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The battery is 1800 mAh, which could prove to be less than ample, if one is watching ads most of the time. You will find Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi, and 3G connectivity and 4GB of storage onboard. That can be expanded up to 32GB with a micro SD card.
The rewards for ads feature is obviously the headline maker and Micromax believes it will give brands an opportunity to stand out. Rahul Sharma, co-founder of the company believes it will “provide a high engagement communication channel for the brands to break away from the clutter.” He also said in a statement that it will help operators improve per user profitability.
The point of contention is how operators could possibly increase profitability when users are going to get their accounts credited for watching ads. Secondly, users would actually be consuming from their data plan to watch the ads, so it’s not all that rewarding getting a small amount of credit in your account. At the moment, with no clarity on these points, the MAd phone comes off as just a gimmick.
This is a CRAZY venture by Micromax and will screw all the other smartphones ranging at this price range. If not anywhere else, it will see significant boost in sales in India with this type of business model.
Just a few days after launching Bolt A61, Micromax has quietly launched a new version of its Android powered Canvas series, the Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114. Lets take a dig at whats cooking in it.
