Finally iPhone has come in India, the price is 31k for 8G and 36k for 16 G, which is almost more than three times the actual cost. What is the reason behind this? The manufacturing cost inclusive of all the profits comes up tp 400$ which is around 16k INR. Are they charging us for the 3G iphone or 3G license? Will explore the reason behind this.
This the confirmation letter i got from a Service Provider.They are asking me to pay the actual price, i.e 10k as advance to get the iphone.

Vodafone is all set to release the first 3g iphone in India. I have already subscribed
In US it costs $200, we have to wait to the see the Indian price, if they are clever enough to launch it at around 10k INR then they will rule the market. I heard that it is gona introduce the 2 yr subscription contract as in US, But how feasible it is in Inida? Remember 500Rs Reliance mobile? Everyone got with a fake id and used it to the maximum.
Anyways lets wait
