Micromax’s Canvas MAd pays you to watch ads!

India’s Micromax at the fore again, this time with a smartphone that not only allows you to make calls, but also pays you to watch ads!

The tagline that follows the model name in the device’s renders aptly reads “Get proud to be mad about ads“. The payout system is powered by an app called ‘MAd’ which comes bundled with the device. Users complete a one-time registration, after which they are paid to watch ads on the device. Credits earned this way are later converted to local currency, which is transferred to the user’s post/pre-paid accounts.

The Micromax Canvas MAd goes for 8,490 INR or $138 in India.

    A far more useful feature would be a built-in anti-rape alert app. No chance of adding this feature because Micromax merely resells Chinese OEM phones.

    it’s a little bit off topic…but have you tried the Baidu browser? It’s in the Google App store..it rocks! It will place a little icon nearby the edge of your display and once you tap it a kind of ‘carousel’ with multiple options will come out. That windows-mobile menu reminded me of Baidu’s browser..
