All Google Android phones sold in India will come bundled with a Reliance 3G connection with 1 GB of free data for the first six months.
This offer goes into effect on April 14 and will be applicable for Android phones from Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG (there’s no Motorola in that list).
But these devices will work on networks of all other mobile operators and consumers will have the option to switch to other operators.
As part of the agreement, RCom, the country’s second-largest telco by subscribers, will launch a 30-crore campaign for Google Android products starting Saturday.
This will be Google’s fourth such deal globally. It has similar agreements with Verizon in the US, Telstra in Australia and one in Japan.
