Micromax soon to launch Canvas mAd A94 – user will get paid for watching ad’s on this device


Popular indigenous technology firm, Micromax reportedly plans to offer monetary benefits for smartphone users to watch advertisement on the company’s upcoming smartphone.

Micromax will be paying users of its new Canvas mAd A94 smartphone to watch ads on their device, according to a tweet by leakster MMXNewscaster. Though it is as yet unclear what form this payment will take, it will probably be related to the phone’s usage in terms of top up vouchers. To kick off its upcoming promotion, Micromax has already run a ‘Mad about ads’ contest across social media networks where it asked users to identify brands on the basis of their ads.

The handset is targeted at youth and will use a unique way of getting them something in return for watching ads. The customers will be asked to pick an option of watching a 30 seconds or 1 minute advertisement before making a call. For this Micromax will give points that could later be exchanged for talk-time vouchers.

For the service Micromax have partnered with companies like Coca Cola and Toshiba. Since the concept is new in mobiles, more companies will also join the service.
