Well you got to give it to Bharti Teleservices, they seem to have beaten Vodafone on the launch date, with Vodafone yet to announce a launch date for the Iphone, Airtel has already announced on its website that its going to launch the Iphone on the 22nd of August and pricing information will be available in due time on the site. I have already signed for the prebooking, but am yet to get any information on the launch  price etc. The only information is available on their website and nowhere else.

So called tech sites like Techtree had claimed a lot of inside sources in Vodafone about the launches (LOL !) , we never had any inside source, only followed developments on websites and hence we weren’t wrong.

It is surprising that Vodafone which had got into an agreement with Apple before Airtel wont get to have the first mover advantage for the Iphone. For the Indian Iphone fan : Exciting times ahead :P

    iPhone has launched in India. But 31,000 (8GB) and 36100 (16 GB) is sheer rip off. Technically and feature wise there are far more superior products in market. I think Vodafone and Airtel should publish figure of sales they have made at this price.They could have made killing. Rather than selling on EMI through credit cards, they could have attached some kind of 12/24/36 month talktime/GPRS plan.

    Honestly I am disappointed with the price.
