New Delhi: Finnish handset giant Nokia has partnered country's largest private telecom firm Bharti Airtel to offer 500 MB 3G data per month for three months for buyers of its recently launched Nokia X Android-powered smartphone.
Customers in non-3G circles can enjoy the same benefit on 2G data, the handset maker said in a statement.
Last month, Nokia had launched its phone 'X' in India for Rs 8,599, which is aimed at protecting its turf in the fiercely competitive Indian smartphone market.
"This reinforces Nokia's commitment towards working with our partners within the ecosystem to deliver the best user experiences," Nokia India Director Marketing Viral Oza said.
Post the exhaustion of 500 MB of data, users will be charged 3 paise per 10KB and 10 paise per 10 KB in 2G circles.
The offer would be available only on the first SIM inserted in a new Nokia X device by existing or new Airtel customers. The offer is valid on new devices bought until June 30, 2014.
"India is witnessing a tremendous growth in smartphone adoption. This offer will enable customers to make the most of their new Nokia X device," Bharti Airtel CEO (Data and Devices) Kartik Sheth said.
