We mentioned just last week that BlackBerry India was kicking off a new marketing campaign which lead with the slogan 'Action Starts Here', and for the good people of India, that now involves a competition. In line with India's Independence Day, the competition has a social twist to it and makes the most of using Facebook. Users need to visit the specific Facebook page, set a goal, make a pledge in one of the categories available and that will then make you a person of action. You can invite your friends to support you and doing this will earn you points. The more points you earn, the more likely you are to be a winner and be awarded with a BlackBerry smartphone as your grand prize. There will be a total of 20 winners selected and they will each either win a BlackBerry Bold 9900, a Curve 9320 or a Torch 9810 - sweet!
There are a couple of very important rules here though. Firstly; you must be a resident of India to take part and secondly; you must be over the age of 18 years old. The contest has started and will run until September 30th so you have plenty of time to get pledging.
