Micromax Canvas MAd A94 phone pays you to watch ads, honest

The all new Micromax Canvas MAd A94 has a selling point no other phone can claim – it pays you to watch advertisements. Seriously. The smartphone comes pre-loaded with a MAd application from Micromax. All users have to do is go through a one-time registration process and then earn points for viewing commercials.

The points are converted into money which is then credited to the customer’s mobile balance. No gatecrashing needed, the fun is open to prepaid and postpaid subscribers hooked up with just about any telecom operator in India. Carriers may be able to earn more average revenue per user, brands could reach people who are actually interested in them and audiences get rewarded too. Win-win-win?
