BSNL offers free pan-India calling from landline

Carly-GIFS-carly-rae-jepsen-33908520-500-281

Do you like to talk to your loved ones for long hours? It won't be a problem for a long time as BSNL landline has bought an amazing service where you do not have to pay anything while calling via landline. It comes with some subscription though as the service will be available from 9PM to 7AM and it will be exclusively for the landline customers only. It may be seen as a marketing booster but for customers it will be a delight. 

The service will be effective from May 1st and if you have a BSNL 'ring-box' at home then you will be enjoying the whole spectrum of the FREE cals on other network operators as well (applicable for mobile phones too).

According to BSNL :

"BSNL has introduced unlimited free calling during night hours from its landline phones to all landline phones and mobile phones of all service provider's network on all India basis from 1st May,".

This initiative covers, all major landline plans pertaining the rural and the urban areas. BSNL has ensured that each and every customers should have enjoy this free calling and hence COMBO plans has been covered in it as well. The reason for this move is actually the fact that BSNL has lost the highest number of Landline customers to Airtel (TRAI reports). So the part where BSNL can compete over Airtel were the call rates, so this move has restored the faith of customers in BSNL. As per as TRAI, the company had over 1.66 crore landlines at the end of February.

Still BSNL is the king in India in the Landline market with approx 63% share. More or Less now having a landline won't just provide a BroadBand connection or will serve as an address proof.

Micromax-Amazon-Yu

Micromax YU will be launched on Amazon India on December 18.. Get ready to play ‘God’

690x381xplay-god-yu-1050x580.png.pagespeed.ic.xXgcL0VuedvCCTKyTs7W

We have earlier discussed about 'Micromax Yu' (Read Here about Micromax Yu). The handset would be launched tomorrow on 18th December, 2014.
Company has sent media Invites stating : 

 “Since time travel is not an option, block your date for 18.12.2014. Play God” As mentioned above, Cyanogen has teamed up with Micromax in an exclusive tie-up where the former will only support Micromax’s forthcoming YU smartphones. In other words, the company said that it will not support “any other devices shipping to India running on Cyanogen.”

Truth to be told, Micromax is already in a law-war with OnePlus pertaining to the exclusive tie-up of Cyanogen in India. The interesting fact is that the OnePlus One was launched in India through Amazon only. surprise

Anyways Yu have been extensively promoted and is enjoying a dedicated webpage and a dedicated Facebook page with more than 100,000 likes on it. You can also visit Amazon's exclusive page for it to subscribe. 

Recent tweet from Amazon India stated the launch of the smartphone in the market. 

We must be thinking about this so called 'Play-God' stuff. Actually,as per as the company, you can create you own theme while using the smartphone. So, you will be having a smartphone which will be exactly as you want it. 

A ban on Xiaomi and OnePlus will surely put up a sense of confidence of the customers in Micromax Yu. However, no one can predict the market, as the real God of market is customer itself. 

Best of Luck 'Yu'.

 

Whatsapp

Learn How to crash your friends Whatsapp while sitting at home

Whatsapp

Two brilliant Indian research students Indrajeet Bhuyan and Saurav Kar, have demonstrated that you can crash your recipient's whatsapp by sending a message with just 2,000 special character.

 

 What actually happens is that Whatsapp in its coding presumes that a message will contain less than 2000 special characters. But as a matter of fact, 2000+ character weigh more than 2KB of data crashing the recipient's whatsapp.

The recipient have to delete the entire conversation otherwise the app will keep on closing by itself (as shown in the video). This could be a bad joke for your friends but if you wish to delete your entire conversation with an annoying person, just send him something special in his/her textbox wink

If you have Whatsapp version '2.11.431 and 2.11.432' then this may affect you. Also this whole thing seems effective with Android versions up to 4.4.

Kindly note that it was first reported by 'The Hacker News'.

The screen is big and the battery looks better but for that why would anyone pay this much amount of money.

Airtel, the pioneer in mobile network in India is unable to provide a flawless 3G service in its Delhi circle. The problem has been there for quite a few days, but recently the problem has been escalated and now the users are facing a lot of issues everytime they use 3G. 

A slow internet always give frustration specially when you have paid for a better on but still see buffering circle on your screen. As a premium brand which charge more than any other service provider in this area, Airtel has to give better service. Its price for premium and hence customers have to be benefited.

The closest rival delivers better service for less price than that of Airtel. Now its time for airtel to provide better service for the money it take. Its not a good signal to the market by a leader who is about to introduce 4G service at a bold level in India.

Micromax Logo

Get ready for an Indian Xiaomi, “Micromax Yu”, it will be available online and will be desi by heart

Micromax Logo

Micromax, an archrival of Samsung has stepped in to battle the Xiaomi fever. Today on 19th November, Micromax launched its latest brand 'Yu' which will be launched online just like Xiaomi.

'Yu' is a product of Yu Televentures which is a 100% owned subsidiary of Micromax. Mixcromax wants to make 'Yu' as the best in quality hence it has partenered Cyanogen to keep a high performance software. Though the first handset will be launched in December, there are no accurate data of the price and device configurations. 

Why it is something crunchy for online retailing?

Earlier when Samsung & Nokia were ruling the Indian smartphone market they haven't had expected a Gurgaon, based startup to eat their share. While Nokia getting crushed by Samsung Micromax was leading in market share in a few customer segments of smartphone user. This time when Xiaomi is ruling online retailing with flash sale to prove its dominance, entering of Micromax in the war may be fatal for the Xiaomi's market share in India. Due to the inability of fulfilling demands where customers are facing a few battery issues and allegations of data mining by Indian Airforce, Micromax will have an upper-hand over the whole scenario.

The rise of the Micromax with Cyanogen

In 2014, Micromax surpassed Samsung by shipping largest number of phones by any mobile phone manufacturer in a single quarter in India. On 24 January 2014, Micromax became the first Indian mobile company to start sales in Russia.

Enthusiastic about the latest alliance, Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen, said,

"We're excited about this partnership as we share a common vision around a powerful user-focused mobile experience. It's only the beginning as the partnership unfolds. Micromax + Cyanogen = revolution. Stay tuned for many awesome new innovations that will arise from this collaboration."

Cyanogen OS, built on Android, is known for delivering rich software advancements that optimize performance, customization, security and privacy features on mobile devices.

Micromax in a statement said,

"Micromax and Cyanogen have been in dialogue for the past one year, under the Project Yureka. Project Yureka was conceptualized to engage directly with consumers and bring innovations that solve consumer problems, not just software or hardware upgrades and is taking the shape of a new brand 'YU'.  

Hope to see a flash sale for our own desi 'Yu'.
