News is that Vodafone’s finally bringing the iPhone to India later this year….Apple has tied up with Vodafone to launch the iPhone in 10 Countries including India and Australia.

its a bit sad though seeing that now everone one will have one not just a few of us who could flaunt it…maybe its time for a change of phones….

Well with the 3G vesion also rumored to be due next month we can only hope for the best(?)………..

Ps- This is what the 3G version is RUMORED to look like…

    Finally! :p A 3G phone from Apple. They should’ve done it right the first time. Seems like a ploy to make people pay for a phone upgrade.

    BTW, I thought ‘VodaiPhone’ was gonna be some spoof featuring iPhone and South Indians, say, Rajnikanth. I was disappointed. ;)

    @Ankur: No 3G in India. The 3G part is excusable. But I just hate the tie-up system with a restricted carrier.

    If Apple chooses to change the name of the 3G iPhone, and add a Pro suffix or Mini suffix or whatever they have the freedom to sell it without a carrier restriction.

    Yeah, I’d have said that Airtel would have been a better option. The reason they chose Vodafone was that they already have tied up with Vodafone in European markets, and it’s a lot less hassle for them if they just extend the deal to India.

    @Abhishek: Yes, there’s no 3G in India, but people DO get a kick out of paying 25k bucks for a phone and then saying “Hey, this has HSDPA…except ahem, I can’t er, use it. Cool, na?” ;)
