Sudoku is a Japanese number placement puzzle that has become a craze worldwide. Its popularity is spreading in India too, with many newspapers making it a daily feature next to crosswords.
“To download the popular Japanese logic puzzle, an Airtel customer can log on to the Airtel Live WAP portal and click on the Sudoku link, which will initiate the application download procedure. One can also SMS the keyword SUDOKU to 646.”
The initial download will come free and will be pre-loaded with a Sudoku puzzle. Upon completing the first puzzle, the user can download a new puzzle through the application itself for Rs.10.
