    I fail to understand, why all this hype. The press keeps reporting it like the countdown to the Olympics. I got a call from an intensivist friend of mine, he wanted to know what the iPhone was all about and if it's worth owning one. I told him that it certainly is worth if you want to SHOW OFF. If you only want to make calls and send sms it's not worth it. 3G isn't out yet, and only once it is we'll know
    1. how costly it is
    2. how reliable or good it is
    I really want to see how many will really use all the features or just.........well........SHOW OFF

    ^^ Thats not true. It states the cost of the original iPhone when launched in US. No word on pricing on iPhone 3G in India in the article.

    In India, we consumers basically pay much higher-than-it-should-be prices for anything that belongs to the "enthusiast" segment, because then the sellers/distributors know that they are catering to the rich folks and it's their golden chance to exploit.

    Consider the case of graphics cards.......the low end ones like the 8400 series or the 9600 series are more or less in sync with their US prices, but try the 8800GT, 8800Ultra, 9800GX2 or the GTX 280.........their all blowing pockets away here, thanks to greedy distributors.

    A few days back I was hunting for the HD4870 card, which is available in the US for 270 odd dollars, and the price here is 19,999. So damn outrageous.

    Here in India, good things = cost more.
