Bharti Airtel, India’s leading cellular network provider and Aircel recently announced that they will be offering Apple’s iPhone 4 in the country “in the coming months.”
Currently Airtel sells iPhone 3GS 8GB while Indian customers have been waiting for iPhone 4 since it was announced in the U.S during WWDC last year.
Apple has always delayed the release of latest iPhone in India and have shown trends of launching iPhone and iPad in the country almost 9-10 months after the official release in the U.S.
These delays often force people to import contract free iPhones from the U.K by paying a huge premium and then using it with their choice of network. Apple continues to sell locked iPhones in India even though the cost of phone is not subsidized by the network provider.
Even if you are using an iPhone 3GS the fourth gen iPhone is certainly worth upgrading as you can experience the amazing retina display, fast A4 processor, gyroscope for games, better cameras and much more.
Based on previous launches and international pricing we believe iPhone 4 16 GB will be priced at Rs. 35,500 and 32 GB for Rs. 41,500 in India.
The rumor mills are predicting a September launch event for iPhone 5 which will feature the new A5 processor and all new design. So, are you still waiting for iPhone 4?
