The wait is finally over. The pricing of the most-awaited gadget Apple iPhone, to be launched in India on August 22, is out.

Reports indicate that the 8 GB version of the 3G iPhone will cost Rs 31,000, while the 16 GB version will cost between Rs 36,000–37,000. :mad:

The prices are not inclusive of the plan the phone will come bundled with.

Last week Bharti Airtel and Vodafone announced that they will launch iPhone on August 22.

In a statement, Bharti said that millions of Airtel subscribers will be able to purchase the iPhone at Airtel's Relationship Centres from August 22.

"iPhone has been an iconic technological revelation of this year and Airtel has been at the forefront of innovation and customer delight in the Indian telecom sector," Sanjay Kapoor, President, Bharti Airtel mobile services, said.

iPhone is embedded with all 3G features and is twice as fast as the existing mobile phones. The phone also has in-built GPS system, which facilitates as navigation and positioning tool.

I can't be sure enough if this is trolling or just hype, let some Mac user show up and then I will say.

Edit: Both threads merged!

Stay Silent!
Alright, where is the official iPhone salesman here?
Let them officially advertise these rates - I wanna see the reaction.
Those ppl who wanted iPhone for the "showoff" factor, hav already got them. Now who is gonna buy a crappy over-hyped thing for 31k? :confused:

btw, does it have multi channel support?

Let us see...

iPhone Subsidized in USA = $ 200 which comes to about Rs 8,000

iPhone unlocked in USA $ 600 = Rs 24,000

iPhone in India = Rs 31k for 8 GB....with contract...

That's the most expensive phone in the history of India I guess. Even Nokia N95 8 GB wasn't that much at launch :D

So, whose buying iPhone from Airtel/Vodafone

I just called my roommate who booked it with Vodafone thinking it is for Rs 12k maximum. He was sleeping, yelled & woke up to go online at home to check the prices. Lolz...I am buying Nokia N82 for 19k & he was mocking me for wasting so much money....

First they quote it at 31k and people bash it like anything. Then they actually price it at 25k and people think its not so expensive so lets buy it. What a strategy man!

Dreaming
37k + Say 10k Contract, over all price of 50k.
Price Justified if iPhone was only for the rich and affluent. The new status symbol.
I see many guys own a N95.
So this iPhone Thing should really be priced 1 Lac ;)

Dude you really need to take a chill pill. The news about rates/plans/contracts is not official yet. Also iPhone without contract is $599 plus taxes which is nearly around 27k in INR.
