Airtel has recently launched a mobile comic portal on Airtel Live, which is the entertainment portal of the telecom operator. This is the first mobile comic portal of India. Customers using Airtel network on GPRS-enabled handset can access the service.
“More than a third of Airtel customers in India have GPRS-enabled handsets and with the mobile becoming the one-stop device for all entertainment needs, comics would be a much sought after addition to our existing services on Airtel Live,” said Saleem Mobhani, Bharti Airtel’s head of mobile entertainment.
The comic service comes with access to 300 plus comic characters, both Indian as well as international ones, right from Popeye till our local Nagaraj the Snake Man.
Customers will be charged Rs.10 per week for 10 comic strips, which is inclusive of data charges.
