Do you want to lay your hands on your first Android phone and don’t want to pay for it? Or you are a Apple fan boy and want to see what’s the fuss about Android is anyway? Well this is your lucky day. Micromax which has launched its first Android phone has a website up where it is offering an Android phone for free. Hold on. Not so fast. You know nothing comes for free.
This is the viral marketing launched by Micromax to get the Android to a great start. I haven’t seen any other manufacturer resort to this kind of stuff. Here’s what you have to do to stand a chance of getting a free Android phone.
Head over to MyFirstAndroid.com. Fill in a story of what you can do to get your first Android. I am not sure if Micromax will ask to do the thing but be careful.
There are more than 800 entries already. Even if you don’t want to fill in, you can go through some of the entries. Here are some I liked :
"wow my first andriod ooonn chalo aaj boy frnd ko kiss de hi dete bechra kab se wait kar raha tha is din ka"
i can remove my paints and said in front of all people micromax tussi great ho taufa kabool karo"
"For my first android phone..i can talk with mahesh bhatt and yash ji..with ear-plug ofcourse.."
"For getting my first android i can listen himesh reshamia’s song for atleast 1 min…after that i can faint.."
"For my first android, I will dump my girlfriend and marry any random girl my parents pick up. True story!"
Competition looks tough and quite a few contenders for the Android phone.
What can I say about Micromax and the campaign? It’s nothing like anything.
