Nestle and Google bow to popular wishes in India, to send Nexus 7 2013 to all the winners of the Nestle KITKAT contest including those who have already received the Nexus 7 2012

This is a win for the popular voice of India !!!

Two weeks after comboupdates (Cheated.... by Nestle and Google, ditches on the promise of first 1000 to get Nexus 2013 in India...gives Nexus 7 2012 1B032A) broke the story of how Nestle reneged on the promise of delivering Nexus 7 2013 to the Indian winners just like Google and Hershey did in the United States, Canada and other countries, Kitkat today did a about turn and announced that all winners including those who have already received the Nexus 7 2012 will be given the latest version of the tablet. This was the reply posted on Kitkat India Facebook page
We are delighted to announce that winners of ‘Android Kit Kat promotion’ will receive the new 2013 Nexus 7 tablet. If you have received an earlier version of the device, we will contact you separately to get it replaced. The delivery schedule for the new dispatches as well as the procedure to be followed for replacement will be communicated shortly.
Days of protest over here, including forming a group on Facebook of which I am admin, and reporting on various blogs, Indian and international has borne fruit.  At the helm of the protests were winners like me whom I wish to personally thank through this post.
1.Manu Presannakumar
2.Emil Paul
3.Dev Vaikul 
4.Vishal Vodro
5. Naveen Shetty
6. Dhairyadev Arora,
7. And lots of people including 134 members of the FB group including Anon and Unknown.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes some winners have started getting Nestle's first shipment of the Nexus 7 (2013) prizes starting Monday 23-DEC-2013. It looks like, Nestle is dispatching new tabs to winners who were not sent any old tab earlier.

    Maybe the winners who had received old tab will have to wait a little bit in receiving the new tab and also replacement of the old tab.

    I won the capitation on 7-11-13. I am from a village in karnataka. I am still waiting for my prize. a month ago they called me and confirmed my address. after a week on 9-1-2014 I got an email saying
    dear winner

    we would like to inform you that your residing area will come under No service area by our courier service so we are trying to get the tab delivered to you personally and this would be done in next 2-3 weeks.

    it's been four weeks since the email, still no sign of a tablet. what could be the reason? please help.
