Free Ad Sponsored Cell phone Network if you can get an Invite to Blyk

New UK-based MVNO Blyk launched today, targeting the 16- to 24-year-old demographic with an invitation-only service — which happens to be free.

Users get a free account with a limit of 217 texts and 43 minutes per month in return for viewing content from advertisers: a minimum of six ads per day.

"Buena Vista, Coca-Cola, I-play Mobile Gaming, L’Oreal Paris, StepStone and Yell have already confirmed that they will be among the first advertisers," writes TechCrunch’s Mike Butcher.

Google is in the Ad Business maybe this will be the pre-runner to gPhone, but something tells me this idea’s going to end up in the same boat as Free Dial-up did…
