Airtel employee finally gives away the details of the launch of Apple iPhone 3GS in India. We are up with some good and bad news for the smart-phone fans.
The Good News: The much awaited Apple iPhone 3GS will be finally available in India officially after 26th March 2010 in all Airtel Stores across India. As last year, Airtel will also offer 500MB free data per month for a period of one year to the new customers buying any of the iPhone models.
The Bad News: The price of Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB model is priced at Rs. 35,500 and the 32GB Model will be available at Rs. 41,500.
The Old part: Airtel will still be selling the Apple iPhone 3G 8GB model at a price tag of Rs. 29,900.
My Take: If you are an Apple fan who want to get it officially, the right time for you is now because by this launch we can obviously say, India won’t see the iPhone 4G this year in India officially. Also do not expect any price drop this year in India.
But if you are not an Apple fan and want a latest smart-phone. You must wait for the Nexus One Mini from Google or get a HTC Desire from eBay India store as they have got better hardware configuration than iPhone 3GS plus the power of Android. And if any of your relative will be traveling from a foreign country to India, HTC Desire would be a great alternative to iPhone 3GS. HTC Desire will cost you around 33k in India. Some other alternatives could be HTC HD2 (officially available in India), Nokia N97, Nokia N900.
I myself would be buying a smart-phone this year and currently my take is HTC Desire. So what’s your take? Do share in comments.
