Was that sarcasm towards me or the site? :rolleyes:
design is to site what tit is to jugs

Don't mix them, could be dangerous.

Why can't these guy design proper, ther are many kiddos using photochop and claiming to be web designers. Hire any one of them to do the dirty work.

Its plain stupid to compare a phone with PSP no matter what can be done with it. And ask you PSP related questions at PSP thread.
Where is PSP thread ?

And the reason I compared iPhone to PSP is because there are a million out there considering buying it as an entertainment gadget. Infact, iPod touch didn't cause as much hype because everyone beleived they could own an iPhone at 200$.

BTW, what are the phones at 31K range which can compete with the iPhone ? I mean, most are for different people, or are large PDAs. They are not small sized phones.

take a look at O2 phones. they cost more than the iPhone and don't even come with built in GPS. And lets not talk about Windows mobile with little RAM and slow processor.

HTC Touch diamond is being sold by airtel at around 28k . I cant think of ANY Logic iphone will be priced more than that.

But if somehow they really do , they're gonna be smashed by grey market.

Well better wait and watch.
And all you guys keep in mind, people at Airtel, Vodafone are all excellent at marketing and business. Same at Apple. ;)

Just read this once more.

"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.

For you guys it may not be. For others, you bet it is.

Isn't the launch date just 10 days from now? So why don't we all be good boys and wait till then. We'll be getting the answer to our questions and there won't be any need for any speculation.

And comparing iPhone to PSP?! WTF! I can understand comparing PSP to media players like iPod Touch, etc. But comparing to iPhone is quite absurd.

do people ask same question with regard to mac computers ?
no.
then why target iphone like this ?

apple products have been known to be pricey and underperforming compared to similar priced products from other brands. this no exception. perhaps the one single BIG exception here is the iPod Classic.

apple doesn't need to lower prices to stay in market. they have something called willing customer base who are enough to keep them happy.

^^ That's people people care or iphone, want to buy iphone but when they came to know that it's going to be anoher overpriced product, they are angry.

Everyone was expecting a subsidized iphone price after looking at $199 price of 8Gb model.

The general opinion is still that we ll get the iPhone for 8k courtesy news channels and newspapers. :D

If the phone actually sells for anything above 27k which now I presume it will, it will send all predictions to La la land. People were expecting it to be around 20k, this is an outrageous rip off.

apple never sells macs for half price in other countries and twice the price in india..the difference between US and indian prices for mac and all those computers is same when compared to difference bw other harware,talking about relative prices.
