iPhone 3G in India – Vodafone and Airtel

IPHONE 3G

So, Vodafone is finally ready to launch the iPhone 3G in India. Vodafone in an SMS to all their customers announced this yesterday.

We are delighted to announce that the iPhone 3G will be available in India from August 22, 2008
It will be available in 8GB & 16GB models, priced at Rs 31,000 and Rs 36,100 respectively.

INR 31000 equals approximately $600 and I think that’s quite steep and at this price there are a lot of other alternatives available in the market. But, what do I know. Fanboys will be fanboys. I’m sure the first batch of iPhones will be a sellout and Apple will be happily adding lots more money to their account.

  1. Hi,

    Lot and lot of people are cursing themselves not to having that of much amount and missing their desire to have iphone. Seriously price is really high, but recently came to know that Airtel has tied up with banks to provide iphone with easy EMI option. It can be checked at:

  2. @Rajesh: Thanks for commenting. Yes, I agree that the price is high and in my opinion Airtel really should have done something to save the consumers from this price. Just giving an EMI option is not enough and in fact the consumers will end up paying even more for the iphone on EMIs.
