In India, Reliance Communications (R-COM) has decided to introduce expert customer care center, exclusive apps, operator billing and dedicated Android zones in order to promote Android handsets across the country. The company has indentured with Google for two years and it’s now offering an exclusive data plans and services for Android based handsets across the country. And I think, it’s the first time when Google has tied up with R-COM to expand market share of its OS across the country.

The company has promulgated 1GB of data transfer on 3G network with free of cost for all handsets users those who endorsed Android devices in between April 15 to June 15 of this year. The offer is valid on pre-paid as well as on the post plan services of the carrier in India–the offer will legitimate for 1 month on post paid plan, whereas, pre paid user will have to use 1GB free data transfer offer within a month.

The carrier is offering the plan on 3G enabled sets of LG– such as LG Optimus 3D P920, LG optimus 2X, LG Plum, LG Optimus Me and LG optimus Black– and also on Sony Ericsson’s Walkman W8 models. However, a list of Android handsets have been provided by the company on its website. Anyway, this is not the first time when Google has indentured partnership with any carriers. Prior to Reliance Communication (R-COM), it has inked with Global carriers such as Verizon in the U.S. and Telstra in Australia.

And Also, it’s not the first time when R-COM has tied up with any other company, previously, the carrier tied-up with world largest mobile handsets manufacturer–Nokia. The carrier was offering Ovi Life Tools, Ovi Music and promote mobile internet package across Nokia GPRS phones to 65% active subscribers in the country.

Whatever may be the reason, but Android has had a great foothold in the Indian market in the last couples of years. In addition to this, the OS is tremendously growing in the market and the amalgamation of  R-COM and Google will definitely benefit to both.
