When the world is getting ready for the Apple’s next generation of iPhone i.e. iPhone 4G, India will be witnessing the 3GS almost an year later after its launch. After several rumors about iPhone 3GS launch in India, another one adds to the list.
As per the rumors the iPhone will be offered with 4 operators, namely -Airtel, Vodafone, Aircel, Reliance Mobile. Aircel and Reliance Mobile are the new players to offer iPhone but sadly none of these operators currently offer 3G. BSNL/MTNL does have 3G services but are out of the game this time.
India is gathering attention of major mobile players for smart-phone market but Apple seems to be very lenient about it. This race creates a great vacuum for grey marketing of smart phones shipping into to India. No information about the iPhone 3GS price is currently available but it is expected to be around 30,000 INR. Spending this amount of money for an outdated phone will make no sense, when other powerful phones such as Nexus One (Mini version for India) & HTC Desire are going to be launched soon.
The phone will come locked with a contract for one or two years which can be officially unlocked after that period. But is it really worth to buy iPhone 3GS at a time when iPhone 4G is about to hit other parts of world? Share your thoughts in comments.
