You must have heard about Vodafone Zoozoos that’s creating a buzz across the blogosphere. And, presently, it is not only the bloggers talking about the Zoozoo ads.
If you are a Zoozoo fan, then you will be happy to know that the Zoozoo Ads have won the PETA award (People for Ethical Treatment for Animals). Continue reading “The Vodafone ZooZoos Win PETA Award”
“ZooZoo” the word making buzz around the blogosphere, spreading from mouth to mouth like fire and getting millions of fan followings not only from India but from around the globe. Recently our co-editor Sandeep wrote an article – “Zoozoo makes you laugh” wherein he mentioned that those animated characters featured in Vodafone ads are not computer generated characters and are real human beings.. This fact fascinated me to find out on how the idea of Zoozoo came into the minds of Vodafone guys and how these Zoozoo series of ads were shot..
So here’s a quick video featured on CNN IBN featuring the making of Zoozoos:
During the 1st IPL(Indian Premier League) season when Vodafone took over Hutch, they launched the Happy to Help series of advertisements which were very interesting and made you smile. Now Vodafone are at it again wth their ZooZoo advertisements.
ZooZoos are characters featured in the advertisements showing the various services provided by Vodafone. The characters were created by O&M for Vodafone. Explaining the idea behind the campaign, Rajiv Rao, executive creative director, O&M says, “We created a special world in which all the product stories get told. A world which is real yet different, strange yet simple, warm and lovable. All the specific product stories and services get told in this world of Zoozoos, making the messages more charming.” Continue reading “Vodafone ZooZoo makes you Laugh”
Voila..! You must be really shocked at least for a moment after reading “85% discount on International Roaming” right? Well, for the first time, even I was surprised and could not make my eyes believe the statement.
But its a fact that, Vodafone is offering 85% of discount for roaming in South Africa. This aggressive move is taken by India’s major private telecom player – Vodafone keeping in mind the ongoing IPL 2009. Continue reading “Vodafone Offers 85% Discount on International Roaming”
If you remember, in a recent post, our co-author – Ritu published about a unlimited email plan for Airtel Blackberry users worth RS. 499 per month. This plan once activated, lets a blackberry users access unlimited email and Instant messengers (like Gtalk & Yahoo) for one complete month. But surprisingly, immediately after Airtel’s announcement of this plan, Vodafone too launched exactly a similar plan but for a better and competitive rate.
This plan by Vodafone costing Rs. 299 per month would give a Vodafone customers exactly the same benefits as in the case of Airtel but the only difference is its price. Airtel charges Rs. 499 and Vodafone declared the same services for just 299 bucks a month. Well, if you are planning to activate this plan, let me tell you, unlimited usages will be only for accessing Email and not browsing the Internet.
I say Vodafone is finally curious about attracting more and more corporate users towards its brand. Hope there would be more such competitive offers in the days to come. 🙂

The price of the 3G iPhone stumped those who were eagerly awaiting its launch in India. To counter the ‘non-affordability’ factor doing the rounds among buyers, Vodafone has decided to offer the handset of easy 6 monthly or 12 monthly instalments.
It is rumoured that the company is holding talks with financial institutions to initiate a tie-up.
At the current rate of interest, we envisage an EMI of up to Rs 7000 for 6 months and at least Rs 4000 for a 12 month scheme. Steep for a handset we would say!!! Continue reading “Will you get your Vodafone iPhone on easy instalments?”
I got this email from Vodafone today which released the prices of the iPhone.
Apple products don’t come cheap.
But how many of you will pay 31,000 for an iphone ?
I don’t think its affordable to most people . Also 3G does not make any sense in the indian context.
Vodafone has released the prices but still no news from my provider Airtel
Please leave a comment on your thoughts about the pricing for the iphone in india.

As the day draws near, when two leading mobile phone operators in India, Airtel and Vodafone launch the iPhone, here is a low down on the negative aspects of the handset…that we read in an In-Flight magazine of a leading Indian airline.
1. Earphones: The iPhone sports “bland” looking regular earphones that are neither classy not stylish. The sound quality is good but the design is very cheap.
2. Technology: Apart from the touch screen, the handset does not use much technology. Depending on the model released may be missing features such as Java, FM Radio, Bluetooth, GPS, or the ability to forward messages, send business cards etc.
3. Applications: Third party applications must be installed via iTunes App Store and this means that this handset is not really the normal “smart phone”.
4. Touch screen: The touch screen on the iPhone is known to be cumbersome to use due to the scratch guard.
5. Customisation: The themes on the iPhone cannot be changed. So no wallpapers, themes or cover panels etc. Even the ring tones are not changeable!
Now this is what we’ve read. Tell us what you feel!
