Burger King offering free subsidized Android phones with two-year contract

Burger King offering free subsidized Android phones with two-year contract
Wireless Advocates is a company that works with retail partners to allow them to offer free smartphones as a promotion. Take this new partnership that the company has with Burger King. The latter is promoting its Android app and at the same time, if you go to BK.com/Android, you will find a number of subsidized handset offerings.

If you are on Verizon, a 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 is free with a two-year contract as is the HTC One Remix (mini 2), LG G3, LG G2, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, Kyocera Brigadier, LG G Vista, Motorola Droid Ultra and the LG Lucid 3. Sprint customers can pick up the HTC One (E8) for free with a signed two-year contract, or go with the LG G3, 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4, LG G2, Kyocera Torque, Kyocera Hydro and the Sharp Aquos Crystal.

You'll notice that these aren't the latest or greatest models available from your carrier. But these offers are aimed at the person who sees the Samsung Galaxy S4 and doesn't realize that not only has there been a Samsung Galaxy S5, but that we are close to seeing the Samsung Galaxy S6 unveiled. In other words, if you are reading this story, you don't fit into the demographic that they are looking for, which is a group we will call smartphone unaware.


Thanks for the tip, Gilbert!

Another step closer to Android being offered in kid's meals.

It's only a matter of time before it happens.

If they sign a two year contract.

That's funny considering iOS looks like something you'd have to pop a quarter into a machine and twist the handle to get.

I'm surprised. You actually commented at me without referring to something that has nothing to do with the current discussion.

Just because you're to dense to see the connection doesn't mean the connection isn't there.

53. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It isn't. It's just a delusion you seem to have.

no, you know exactly what he means. or are you d_mb enough not to understand the comment?

54. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You obviously have no idea what I'm referring to so hush.

It's also quite telling that you welcome me making a singular attack on your comment, rather than trying to open an informative dialogue as I have in the past.

55. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It was a ridiculous dialogue in the past so it'll be equally ridiculous here right now.

Anything you don't agree with is ridiculous, according to you. There are things I may not like or agree with, but I understand that those things only apply to me. I don't try to pretend that my views are everyone else's. The only thing I've ever tried to do is give an alternative point of view. You seem to be completely against that. All that comes out of your mouth is Apple great, MS great, Android (including Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, and especially Motorola) sucks, Google sucks, BlackBerry sucks. You say you're not a troll, but when you find people that you can incite, you make sure to go into every article on that subject and post something inflammatory. That's a textbook definition of a troll.

Not surprised. BK had to do something because their raunchy, tasteless, SMALL, flat, hamburgers aren't selling. Not with them getting their tails kicked by 5 Guys Hamburgers and other startups.

Bring back the Chicken Fries

Slap yourself right now and discipline yourself. The Whopper is still a damn good burger.

Yes, because it's the WORST thing ever to make smartphones more accessible to others. oh, by the way. how much does an iphone 4s go for from any retailer that still carries it? .......oh right, it's free as well. so the cost isnt' your gripe, you are literally upset with the idea of getting more people who otherwise wouldn't take the time to go to a cell phone store interested in cell phones? wow, how great you are. excellent example of a human being......i feel sorry for you

8 out of every 10 smartphone buyers already choose Android. It's tough to find new markets to sell them.

Will the Galaxy S4 have a Verizon logo on the home button and Burger King and Verizon logos on the back?
