handy – the city guide on a smartphone (PLUS win a trip to the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens!)
For everyone going to the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, there’s something you might want to check out. An official Hong Kong Sevens sponsor, handy is a smartphone you rent by the day. Unbelievably it comes with unlimited 3G internet, unlimited local calls and unlimited international calls to 17 countries. No hidden charges!
This means there’s going to be a lot of video calls back home to show-case tries in real-time! Or a mass increase in photo uploads of various Sevens shenanigans.
The city guide comes with reviews, suggestions, itineraries and ‘best of’ lists across attractions, shopping, dining, nightlife and more. handy also comes with discount deals you actually buy through the phone.
Especially for the Sevens, every single handy for two weeks before and two weeks after the Sevens will come with the ‘official app’! So real time updates across scores, matches, rankings, team and player information throughout the entire game, so if you happen to miss a game while queuing for beer it isn’t so bad.
