And it is pretty much a disaster.
Airtel is now accepting preorders. The pricing detail?
Apple iPhone 4S 16GB: Rs. 44500
Apple iPhone 4S 32GB: Rs. 50900
Apple iPhone 4S 64GB: Rs. 57500
In comparison, you can buy a Motorola Razr or a Samsung Galaxy Tab in the range of Rs. 34-35000. Samsung Galaxy S II is priced under Rs. 30,000.
We are not sure what Apple is thinking pricing the iPhone 4S so high. They did one thing good this time around by bringing this phone to the Indian market so fast. But pricing would ensure that customers would prefer getting it from the international market.
